Mercedes-Benz starts production of the new CLA Coupé at Kecskemét on Hungary
The Hungarian Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét remains the birthplace of the CLA: following the sales success of the CLA Coupé, launched in 2013, the production of the second generation of this compact model - like its predecessor - now starts exclusively in Kecskemét.
For more than five years, the CLA has had a very special importance for our team: over 750,000 CLA und CLA Shooting Brake of the first generation have already left our production lines in Kecskemét.
Since 2018 the model range of the Hungarian Mercedes-Benz plant includes the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake as well as the A-Class.
The Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét has around 4700 employees. In 2018 it produced more than 190,000 Mercedes-Benz compact vehicles.
The first model to roll off the line in Kecskemét was the Mercedes-Benz B-Class in 2012. It was followed by the four-door CLA compact coupe in 2013 and by the CLA Shooting Brake in 2015.
Both of these models are produced exclusively in Kecskemét for the world market.
