What started as the GLK back in 2008 turned out to be a story of success. The boxy SUV turned into the soft-edged GLC and hit one million vehicles sold. The Mercedes-Benz GLC is manufactured at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen, Germany and shipped all over the world. Here are the most interesting things about the super popular car.
- GLC has a meaning. Letter “G” refers to the prime father of the Mercedes SUVs, the “L” stands for “luxury” and the “C” shows that it is part of the C-Class family.
- The GLC is currently the most popular Mercedes-Benz SUV, hitting better sales figures than any other of the premium car maker’s SUVs.
- About one in two GLCs is sold to a customer in China today. The key market list includes USA, Germany, Great Britain and France.
- The C-Class comes off the same assembly line in the largest production building of the Bremen plant.
- In order to satisfy the very strong demand, the GLC SUV is now also produced in China and Finland.
- Every GLC is unique. Statistics show that no two GLCs are alike. There are a dozen colors and equipment lines to choose from and there are nine different engines available.
- The GLC 350 e 4MATIC is the first plug-in hybrid model with all-wheel drive in this market segment.
- In the United States, the GLC is especially popular among women. Almost 50% of the GLC drivers are females.
