Cars manufactured by Mercedes-Benz in Bremen 2023
8 Mercedes-Benz models proudly carry the seal 'Made in Bremen'. Vehicles bearing the brand's iconic three-pointed star have been produced at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Sebaldsbrück, Bremen, since 1978. 11,500 employees ensure that up to 265,000 vehicles roll off the assembly line each year here.
These are impressive numbers – figures that show how the beating heart of Bremen's industry is driven by the car. Some models are sporty and dynamic, others graceful and refined. And there's plenty in between. And since 2018 also fully electric with vehicles in the EQ series. The Bremen plant also happens to be the leading plant for the worldwide production of C-Class vehicles – all sites producing C-Class cars are managed, monitored and optimised from here, among others in Tuscaloosa USA.
To ensure that everything runs smoothly, the plant is serviced by a total of 1,000 suppliers, with a thousand lorries delivering their products to the premises each day. Many of these suppliers have based themselves in Bremen to get as close to the Mercedes-Benz plant as they can. The Bremen Hansalinie Industrial Estate, located near to the plant, further serves this purpose. It is undergoing continual expansion in the face of increasing demand, in part owing to its prime location just off the A1 autobahn.
Our photo gallery showcases the cars that have been produced in Bremen with the support of a vast workforce and extensive supplier network.
Bremen's no. 1 model – the Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Established as a successor to the 'Baby-Benz', the C-Class has been produced since 1993. It is the biggest-selling Mercedes-Benz model series. The fifth and latest generation of the C-Class went into production in 2021 and will be available in many model variants.
Plenty of room to boot – the C-Class estate
When it comes to having plenty of room, the C-Class estate dominates the field. And Germans do love their estate cars, which are just ahead of SUVs as the country's most popular type of vehicle. It's not just families who value the C-Class estate as an extremely roomy vehicle – an abundance of space is always useful, whether you're transporting tools, groceries, pets or skiing equipment. The model has been manufactured exclusively in Bremen, so if you're driving a C-Class estate, you can be sure of one thing – you've got your hands on a high-class quality product made in Bremen.
Putting the 'E' in elegance – the E-Class coupé
The E-Class coupé rolls off the assembly line in Bremen alongside the E-Class cabriolet and the C-Class T-Model. It is packed with state-of-the art technology: in place of analogue instruments, for example, the dashboard features up to three flat screen monitors. These give the driver control over a diverse range of vehicle management systems, such as automatic collision prevention, parking assistance, braking assistance, and even a concierge service.
Bremen's convertible – the E-Class cabriolet
The car manufacturing process at the Mercedes-Benz plant is supported by 1,500 robots, which also produce parts for the E-Class cabriolet. Just like any other model, the cabriolet can be made to order in thousands of different variations, all of which come off the same assembly line. This is made possible by an intelligent production system, which visitors can see for themselves on one of the many factory tours.
Going off-road in style – the GLC
The sporty sister model of the GLC combines sporty design and everyday practicality and brings plenty of driving pleasure to the road. With its curved tail lights, sporty roofline and large panoramic roof, it is an eye-catcher. The Coupé is a real Bremen car, as it is built exclusively in the Bremen factory.
The latest offshoot in the portfolio – the GLC coupé
The GLC coupé is the tenth and most recent model produced in Bremen. It is a sportier version of the GLC and boasts a distinctive curved rear. Even during the assembly process, it serves as a symbol of innovation: in the factory, a new system has been used for the first time that allows employees to remain seated in an ergonomically optimal position while kitting out the vehicle interior. This reduces back strain, avoiding the risk of occupational injury.
Sports car made in Bremen: AMG SL
The SL can look back on a long history: The legendary 300 SL caused quite a stir with its performance back in 1954. Even today, the SL is a dream car for many - and the new version from Mercedes sports car forge AMG can easily keep up with other superbolides in its class with its 585 hp.
Humming along in luxury: the EQE
The all-electric model produced in Bremen is the EQE electric sedan. It is the equivalent of the E-Class in the combustion segment and thus offers upscale equipment together with the quiet, albeit powerful, acceleration of an electric drive. The sedan comes with numerous electronic assistance systems. For sporty, ambitious drivers, there is also an AMG variant.
