There is enthusiasm skyrocketing at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Sindelfingen! The first new Mercedes-Benz CLS have just rolled off the assembly line.
The sleeker brother of the E-Class runs off the same assembly line with the business sedan and T-Modell, therefore state-of-the-art digital production technologies are used for the 4-door coupe as well. The plant incorporates a system that locates the screwdrivers, for example, that are required by an employee and supplies the necessary information for a certain vehicle, such as the data of the order. the screwdrivers required for the operation are activated accordingly.
The story of the CLS dates way back, in 2003, when it came into the world to set new standards and open the doors of a new segment: 4-door coupes, combining the dynamic proportions of a coupe with the practical characteristics of a sedan. The third generation is now the most intelligent and most spectacular of them all, yet keeping the aura of its unique personality.
The high-performance model, the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ model is being built at the same plant. Recently introduced at the first car show of the year in Detroit, NAIAS, the CLS 53 4MATIC+ only takes 4.5 seconds to run from 0 to 100 km/h on its way to a top speed of 270 km/h when fitted with the Driver’s Package.
More than 25,000 people work in Sindelfingen in round-the-clock shifts to manufacture models like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, both sedan and estate, the CLS, the S-Class (sedan, coupe and cabriolet models), the Mercedes-Maybach and the Mercedes-AMG GT supercar. Approximately 200 cars are delivered at the Mercedes-Benz customer center in Sindelfingen every day.
