Report: Mercedes-Benz to build CLA and A-Class sedan in Mexico

AutomotiveNews reports that Mercedes-Benz is going to begin producing the CLA and A-Class sedan in Mexico with the next generation variants.

According to the report, Daimler’s Board of Management is just about ready to approve this construction deal, after speaking with Germany’s Manager Magazin. The models are destined to be built at Nissan’s plant in Aguascalientes, Mexico, which makes sense considering Renault-Nissan and Mercedes-Benz are in slight partnerships with each other, particularly for the sake of Infiniti.

Not much is known about the new CLA and A-Class as they’ve only been introduced rather recently. On the other hand, an Infiniti variant is said to be built at the same plant, though production isn’t expect to commence for any of the new models until 2018.
