Less than ten months after the opening of Mercedes-Benz’s newest plant in Kecskemét a new milestone was reached in the company’s history: with the official production launch of the Mercedes-Benz CLA – following that of the B-Class – the very first car of the model made only and exclusively in Kecskemét left the production line. Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary Kft. Mr. Frank Klein welcomed prestigious guests at the plant: Hungarian Prime Minister Mr. Viktor Orbán and Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Division Dr. Dieter Zetsche attended the event. The Kecskemét plant achieved the goal set for the past year and produced more than 40.000 cars, thus contributing to the best year ever in the sales of the B-Class model. The first Mercedes-Benz CLA “Made in Kecskemét” car, similarly to the first B-Class made here, was again offered for charity purpose, the total amount acquired from the event will be transferred for the International Children’s Safety Service to support their work.
