Mercedes Benz and their venture partner BAIC Group has begun production of the GLC in their Beijing Benz Automotive Co plant.
The plant itself has been upgraded in preparation of the GLC and the GLA with a new assembly and body shop along with a new paint shop. China is already their number 1 market for the GLA and GLK so it makes sense to also produce the GLC in the country of what could be the SUV's largest market.
Also handy is the fact that the GLC engines are produced at BBAC too.
Not too sure if the units produced by this plant will be made specifically for China only or if they will be shipped worldwide.
