Stuttgart/Beijing. At and around Auto China 2024, Mercedes-Benz underlines its commitment to delivering
dedicated products and technologies to Chinese customers. As the largest single automotive market in the
world, China plays an important role in the long-term strategy of Mercedes-Benz. Running up to the show, the
company will maintain its leadership position in this market, headlined by the world premiere of the all-new
electric Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
China is home to the company’s largest production site and the most comprehensive R&D hub outside
Germany, playing a significant role in Mercedes-Benz’s global R&D network. In recent years, Mercedes-Benz
strengthened its R&D capabilities in China, particularly in electrification and digitalisation. In 2021, the
company opened the new R&D Tech Centre China in Beijing, equipped with state-of-the-art testing labs,
including E-drive, battery, charging, NVH, and more. In 2022, Mercedes-Benz established the new R&D Centre
Shanghai, focusing on connectivity, automated driving, plus software and hardware development. This April, a
new building will be added with advanced hardware and software facilities designed to accelerate local
development in cutting-edge digital innovations. Besides the R&D Centre, the existing Design Centre will
continue to promote the digital dimension in Mercedes-Benz designs.
Moreover, the world premieres of two new models will take place in China. The first is the new
Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE, the latest high-performance sports car of Mercedes-AMG. It will be
revealed at a special AMG Brand Night Event in Shanghai during the Formula 1 weekend on April 20.
