China is a very important market for many manufacturers for many reasons and it is reasonable for the individual markets to evolve slightly different models targeting China. This is why Mercedes-Benz is opening a new R & D center in Beijing. According to the Head of the company in China, Hubertus Troska, the center shows the desire of Mercedes to commit in the country and show cars that will meet the specific needs of buyers there.
It’s the next logical step towards a better understanding of the market
Said Troskas. He also said that Mercedes will sell 300,000 GLA in China by next year. The aim of the new R & D center will be the optimization of the existing models of the brand for the Chinese market and the development of a super-premium car specifically for China.
