“Our new compacts are so popular with our customers that the Rastatt and Kecskemét plants are completely utilized,” said Daimler’s Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, in a release. “Our aim is to optimally serve customer demand and keep delivery times of our new A-Class as short as possible in the interest of our customers.”

Mercedes said that it also plans to add a third shift at its Rastatt plant to support the demand for the new A-Class. Valmet will produce more than 100,000 units of the A-Class between 2013 and 2016.
