Mercedes CLA Production
Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Production. Kecskemét – Production anniversary at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét, Hungary: 500,000 vehicles have rolled off the production line since the plant opening on 29 March 2012. "The Mercedes-Benz plant Kecskemét, together with the lead plant in Rastatt, Germany, makes an important contribution to growth in our compact-car segment. In Kecskemét, with the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake, we produce two models exclusively for the world market," said Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management. To celebrate the production anniversary, the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited the plant. At the same time, he took the opportunity to personally meet the new CEO and Site Manager, Christian Wolff. Besides Orbán, Szemereyné Pataki Klaudia, Mayor of Kecskemét; István Lepsényi, Secretary of State for Economic Development and Economic Regulation from the Department of Trade and Industry; as well as János Nagy, Secretary of State, were part of the meeting. The fivehundred thousandth passenger car from Kecskemét is a cosmos black CLA, which is going to a Hungarian customer. "The production anniversary is a success achieved together by our workforce of over 4,000 people. Our qualified experts and dedicated employees produce passenger cars in top-quality. The Mercedes-Benz plant Kecskemét continues to have a very good perspective with its successful products. We are planning to further develop the location on a continuous basis. Currently, 15 million euros are invested in an innovative logistic concept", said Christian Wolff, who has been CEO and Site Manager of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary Kft. since 1 January 2016. Wolff also expressed the company's gratitude to all its Hungarian partners in politics, administration and society, and in particular to the city of Kecskemét, for the on-going and constructive partnership. The Kecskemét plant largely contributes to the international success of Mercedes-Benz with its production of the B-Class, the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake. The CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake are produced exclusively in Kecskemét for all markets worldwide. The compact cars are continuing on the road to success at Mercedes-Benz: In January, 45,840 customers decided to buy an A-Class, B-Class, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake or GLA, representing a 35.9 percent increase in unit sales compared with the same month last year. One year ago, the number of compact models delivered to customers worldwide increased by 25.8 percent, to a total of 582,531 passenger cars. "We are proud to state that the Mercedes-Benz models from Kecskemét with their innovative technologies are already sold in more than 180 countries. These models are likewise extremely popular in Hungary. Year after year, more and more domestic customers are choosing to buy passenger cars produced at this location," states Jörg Schmidt, CEO of Mercedes-Benz Hungária Kft. The Mercedes-Benz plant Kecskemét is part of the compact-car production network within the global, flexible and efficient Mercedes-Benz Cars production compound. In addition to Kecskemét, the compact-car network includes the lead plant in Rastatt (Germany) and BBAC in Beijing (China), where the GLA compact SUV is produced for the Chinese market. Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz Cars uses the Finnish contract manufacturer Valmet Automotive to produce additional A-Class models. Thanks to the shared compact-car architecture, each location can build all models in any sequence and any number, thus ensuring that the volumes can be distributed around the network flexibly and efficiently in line with current market demand. Last year, the plant Kecskemét produced over 183,000 passenger cars.
2017 Mercedes E-Class Crash Test - Better than 5 Stars
2017 Mercedes E-Class Crash Test - Better than five stars The E-Class's occupant safety, child safety, pedestrian protection and assistance systems have been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating. The Saloon was a particularly deserving recipient of this top rating since in the crash tests in all four categories it significantly outperformed the standard required by Euro NCAP in order to attain the top score of five stars. Category Result E-Class Five-star cut-off Occupant safety 95% 80% Child safety 90% 75% Pedestrian protection 77% 60% Assistance systems 62% 50% The E-Class Saloon also achieved two Euro NCAP "Advanced" awards for PRE‑SAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST – both awards go beyond the star rating and underline particular safety innovations. The E-Class Saloon owes these impressive results primarily to the combination of its high-strength passenger safety cell with highly effective restraint systems and the large number of driver assistance systems on board. Active Brake Assist, for example, is a standard feature. It is able to warn the driver of impending collisions, provide support with emergency braking and, if necessary, apply the brakes autonomously. Likewise included as standard are ATTENTION ASSIST with adjustable sensitivity, which can warn the driver of inattentiveness and drowsiness, and Crosswind Assist. Other driver assistance systems are available as an option, including DRIVE PILOT, which marks a further milestone on the road to automated driving, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Traffic Sign Assist with wrong-way warning function. Some of these optional systems, however, have not yet been taken into consideration in the Euro NCAP assessment. Active and passive safety are intelligently combined with the PRE-SAFE® system, which is able to recognise critical situations on the road and, where there is the threat of an accident, trigger preventive measures to protect the occupants. PRE‑SAFE® Impulse Side is available as an option for the E-Class for the first time. If it detects the immediate threat of a lateral collision, this new subsystem is able to move the driver or front passenger away from the danger zone as a preventive measure, effectively creating a virtual crumple zone for the side of the vehicle. Another new feature is the standard PRE-SAFE® Sound system. Immediately before a collision it can trigger a natural protective reflex in the ear, preparing the occupants for the noise of the accident in order to reduce potential damage to their hearing. Mercedes-Benz takes the protection of more vulnerable road users such as children very seriously. This also applies to pedestrians and cyclists. The E-Class Saloon features an active bonnet which can be raised 80 millimetres during an impact to provide additional deformation space. In addition Active Brake Assist is not only able to recognise slow-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles but also pedestrians crossing in the danger zone in front of the vehicle and can brake autonomously to prevent a collision with a pedestrian. With features such as these, the E-Class's impressive pedestrian protection standards far exceed statutory requirements. The E-Class Saloon's success in the Euro NCAP rating is the result of Mercedes‑Benz's holistic safety philosophy. Instead of focusing solely on rating requirements, the company uses findings from its own accident research to develop internal test standards and test criteria that go beyond what is required by law.
