Mercedes-Benz continues to expand rapidly in the United States. For example, a completely new battery facility was recently opened in Alabama, employing up to 600 workers to produce batteries for Mercedes-EQ electric SUVs sold in the United States.
Mercedes-Benz continues to invest in the manufacture of electric vehicles at seven locations across three continents. The new Mercedes-Benz EQE and Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUVs will soon be built in the company's factory in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Since 1997, this facility has produced SUV models for Mercedes-Benz, making the firm one of the influential automobile exporters in the United States. In 2021 alone, almost 260,000 electric cars will be made here.
The new battery facility will employ up to 600 people and provide batteries to the Mercedes-Benz EQ produced in the United States. In addition, Mercedes-Benz now operates battery manufacturing facilities in Germany, Poland, China, and Thailand.
Additionally, the business intends to collaborate with partners to establish eight battery cell facilities worldwide. The objective is for these to generate 200 Gigawatt-hours of electricity each year.
Mercedes-Benz engages with one of the world's premier battery technology firms, Envision AESC, to access locally made battery cells. Envision AESC will deliver battery modules for the future Alabama plant from a US-based factory in a few years. @via Mercedes-Benz.
