Mercedes Benz plans 1.3 billion euro electric van factory in Poland
Warsaw, Poland — German automaker Mercedes-Benz is investing 1.3 billion euros ($1.4 billion) in an electric van factory in Poland, officials said on Monday.
The Jawor plant in southwestern Poland will be Mercedes-Benz Group AG’s first in Europe dedicated to manufacturing electric delivery vehicles, said Mathias Geisen, head of the company’s van operations.
Geisen said electric delivery vans will be the “vehicles of the future” and a big step toward zero-emissions transportation.
Mercedes already has an automotive engine and battery plant in Jawor.
The van plant is expected to create 2,500 new jobs, Poland’s Ministry of Economic Development and Technology said.
The launch date has not yet been announced.
