Last 203 Series C-Class Wagon Rolls off Assembly Line

 

 

4th June, 2007

The final Mercedes-Benz C-Class wagon manufactured in Bremen (203 series)

The final C-Class station wagon of the 203 series rolled off the assembly line at the DaimlerChrysler plant in Bremen on Thursday, 31st May, 2007, marking a major milestone in the success story of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Approximately 360,000 units of the C-Class station wagon have been sold since the model was launched in early 2001. The last vehicle produced at the plant, a black C230 Kompressor equipped with right-hand drive, will go to a customer in England.

The director of the Bremen plant, Rainer Genes, is satisfied with the work that's been accomplished. "The Bremen plant is the only one in the Mercedes Car Group production network that makes C-Class station wagons," he says. "I'm proud of the Bremen team, who have made a major contribution to this success story. Their know-how and dedication have put the 'Made in Bremen' label on every C-Class station wagon in the world."

In the coming months the Bremen plant will be focusing on preparing for the production launch of the successor series' model. The series 204 station wagon will celebrate its world premiere later this year. The new C-Class station wagon's high level of utility makes it a real standout. Like the new sedan, it will also set benchmarks in terms of safety, comfort and agility.

Ever since its European launch in March 2007, the new C-Class sedan, which is being produced in the Sindelfingen, Bremen and East London (South Africa) plants, has met with an enthusiastic response from customers all over the world.

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan will be released in Australia in late July, 2007. The new wagon version will arrive in Australia in early 2008.
