Although this is the oldest plant in the Daimler Group in historical terms, the magnificent enthusiasm and commitment of our workforce has kept it young and dynamic.

To celebrate this event Mercedes Benz had the children from their plant's creche to paint a papier-mache wall which was built for the 1 millionth engine can crash out of it as it comes out of its production line.

The V6 engines on the Mercedes Benz E-Class offered in India, the 350 CGI petrol and the 350 CDI diesel are all produce at this facility in Berlin. It is to be noted that Mercedes Benz was one of the first luxury car makers to introduce the V6 engine into India.
