There will be a plant of the Mercedes C-class models in Brazil
The Mercedes-Benz Company has a plan to establish a new factory of assembly C-class cars in Brazil for reducing taxes on the selling of imported vehicles.
The Company are going to start production by 2015 launching nearby 20 thousands cars per year. However, according to a representative of the German brand report, the Daimler AG has not made the final decision to build a plant in Brazil because the company considers Brazil as one of some places for their plant.
The largest auto manufacturers try to use Brazil as a plant-base helping the Government of Brazil to solve a problem according to unemployment in the country. The Brazilian government makes favorable conditions for the carmakers to assembly their vehicles by increasing taxes on imported cars.
Last year the BMW brand voiced its decision to build a new plant producing BMW models in Brazil. Audi has to make decision to begin launching vehicles there too.
The building assembly plant of C-class models of Mercedes in Brazil is not the first attempt to use one of the largest auto markets in the world.
The Mercedes brand were producing the A-class models in the Juiz de Fora a factory from 1999 to 2010. At that time, the Daimler AG was the first auto manufacturer launching cars in Brazil. However, in 2010, the carmaker stopped its production of A-class vehicles and rebuilt this plant for making trucks.
