Bremen - a long-standing centre of automotive production

Bremen can look back on a long history as an automotive city. The first car plant in Bremen opened in 1906, and its first customer was none other than Kaiser Wilhelm II.

Bremen has been a centre of automotive production for almost as long as cars have been around. The Mercedes-Benz plant, the city's biggest private employer, makes up to 400,000 vehicles every year (as at 2020) and is the main global plant for the C-Class range.

Turnover for the vehicle construction sector (excluding shipbuilding) is stated at around 22 billion euros in the annual statistical report for 2018.

The car terminal in the port of Bremerhaven, the region's pioneering role in electromobility, and the outstanding research that is currently being done at the city's universities make Bremen an ideal location for investment in the automotive sector.
