Production milestone: Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant produces the 750,000th C-Class Limousine

On 26 June 2012, for the 750,000th time, a C-Class Limousine of the current W 204 series left the production line at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Sindelfingen. "Behind each of these 750,000 vehicles in Sindelfingen is the enthusiasm of the automaker," said plant manager Willi Reiss. "The number speak for itself - and shows how popular the C-Class sedan is." The milestone vehicle, a C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY in Avantgarde trim in iridium silver metallic exterior paint finish, goes to a customer in Karlsruhe. As additional safety features, the vehicle includes ATTENTION ASSIST, Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist.
