Ahead of the target of first deliveries by summer of 2018, Mercedes-Benz has started production of the all-new CLS at their plant in Sindelfingen. Based off of the E-Class platform, the CLS is now in its third generation and is more technologically advanced than ever.
The Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ is also produced at the same factory, although as we've discovered the more accessible Mercedes-AMG models don't require as much hands-on precision, and yet they deliver as much of the driving experience you could ask for or hope for.
At the Sindelfingen plant, the CLS joins the S-Class in all of its various bodystyles, the Mercedes-Maybach, and the Mercedes-AMG GT - being more of a lower-volume, higher-end plant that specializes in the top-tier products of the Mercedes-Benz range.
Employing over 25,000 workers, the Sindelfingen plant is one of the more technologically advanced and flexible production centres for Mercedes-Benz, which also makes them one of the candidates for production of models under EQ - Mercedes' electric product and technology division.
