Daimler setting up battery facility in China to meet electrification demand

Daimler setting up battery facility in China to meet electrification demand

Daimler and Beijing Benz Automotive, the company’s Chinese partner, are investing 655 million Euros in setting up a new battery production facility next to their present plant in Beijing, China. The new plant will make batteries for the brand’s upcoming EVs such as the Mercedes EQ, and should be operational by the year 2020.

Daimler is investing heavily on the EV revolution. It was only last month that the brand announced the establishment of their second battery factory, located next to Daimler’s first and fully operational battery factory in Germany. It is believed that these production facilities will collectively supply batteries to all of Daimler’s markets worldwide. Daimler’s China battery factory is the first Daimler battery production site outside of Germany. 

China is currently the world’s largest and fastest growing electric vehicle market. Hubertus Troska, board member at Daimler, said “By 2025, the Chinese market will have a substantial share in sales of Mercedes-Benz EVs. Therefore, local production will be key to the success of our EV portfolio, and crucial to flexibly serving local demand for electric vehicles”.
