Mercedes-Benz will be producing both the GLC Coupe and the C-Class Cabriolet at their Bremen plant as part of the transformation plan they agreed upon with the works council in 2015. In order to support the extra production needs of these two new models, the plant will create an additional 200 permanent jobs at the factory.
In total, ten different models will be rolling off the assembly line at Bremen; the saloon, estate and coupe versions of the C-Class, coupe and cabriolet of the E-Class, SUV GLC, and the SLC and SL roadsters.
With the GLC Coupe and the C-Class Cabriolet being produced in the same plant, we could be one step closer to a GLC Cabriolet. We’ve already been told that it’s not difficult to modify the GLC Coupe SUV into a Cabriolet so it shouldn’t be too hard to tweak the production process in a plant that’s already making both models.
More than 750 million euros will be spent modernizing and expanding the Bremen facility. Maybe a bit of that could be budgeted for future GLC Cabriolet production equipment.
