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 always been a successful location for the automotive industry. The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is the largest private employer in the region. Currently, eight models are manufactured at the site. As the lead plant for the C-Class, the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen directs the worldwide production of the model series in the foreign plants in China and South Africa. Production of the GLC is also managed from Bremen as the main production site. The all-electric sedan EQE and the iconic sports car SL are built in Bremen.

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.
