Speaker Overview

Together with its local partners Thonburi Automotive Assembly Plant (TAAP) and Thonburi Energy Storage Systems (TESM), Mercedes-Benz Cars has built a new battery factory on a 50,000 m² site at its plant near Bangkok. The central assembly stations here have been set up in the same way as in the existing battery factory in Kamen, North Rhine-Westphalia, and adapted to Thai standards. The batteries manufactured in Bangkok are to be used primarily in the current Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class, and S-Class, as well as in the GLC and GLC Coupé. The C- and E-Class are in particular high demand in Thailand.

Mercedes-Benz aims to have a CO2-neutral new car fleet by 2039, and by 2030, at least every second vehicle is to have an electric drive. All of the carmaker’s European plants should be producing climate-neutrally by as early as 2022. The new battery factory in Bangkok already meets this target, thanks to the installation of large solar panels on its roof.
