‹F.›: The GLC F-CELL pre-series vehicles are produced in Germany.
What does this look like in detail?
‹Mohrdieck›: As with our other products, we have recourse to our global
network of expertise. The vehicle itself is manufactured in Bremen in cooperation
with our partner EDAG. Fuel cell system assembly is carried
out in the Kirchheim-Nabern location that belongs to the Mercedes-Benz
plant in Untertürkheim. This is where the complete drive unit is produced
in accordance with the ‘one man, one engine’ principle, traditionally applied
at Mercedes-AMG. The complex fuel cell system production is equipped
with a smart control system. Our assembly technicians, for example,
receive digital instructions for every working and testing stage; the tool
and system control system is supplied with the requisite settings and every
stage is immediately electronically documented online. The hydrogen tank
system is assembled at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Mannheim.
