The German automaker Mercedes-Benz intends to build a battery manufacturing plant in Poland. This will be the ninth plant of the company. Production will be located in the city of Javor in the southwest.
In addition to batteries for electrified and all-electric cars, the plant will assemble four-cylinder engines for hybrid and conventional versions of Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
More than 1000 employees will work at the production, the construction of which has already begun.
It is expected that the production of engines in Yavor will begin this year, and the first production batteries will be released in early 2020. Parts produced at the factory will be delivered to Mercedes-Benz enterprises in Europe and around the world.
Recall, Mercedes-Benz plans to electrify its entire model range in 2022. According to a member of the board of directors of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Marcus Schaefer, own production of batteries at the new plant will be “an important success factor in the era of electric mobility.”
