“During the past decade of the partnership between Daimler and BAIC, we have seen our production joint venture BBAC grow from strength to strength,” stated Hubertus Troska, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Greater China and chairman and CEO of Daimler Greater China.
“The investment of around 400 million euros in our first ever passenger-car engine plant outside of Germany demonstrates both our commitment to serving our Chinese customers even better with the latest technology locally made and our confidence in Mercedes-Benz’s prosperous future here in China.”
As a green-field plant that combines state-of-the art technology with sustainable and lean production processes, the new Beijing-based BBAC engine plant will manufacture four and six-cylinder engines to power the passenger cars produced at BBAC and Mercedes-Benz vans produced locally at the joint venture Fujian Benz Automotive Co. Ltd. (FBAC).
Being based on a flexible production-line concept, the annual capacity is planned at 250,000 units for the initial phase.
