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.

Now it’s OFFICIAL! The Mercedes-Benz CLS is finally here!

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.
