Daimler mulls joint production in Mexico between Nissan and Mercedes-Benz

Article by Anita Panait, on June 10, 2013

Daimler is mulling commencing production of Mercedes-Benz vehicles in Mexico, according to a report by Mexican daily El Financiero. The newspaper cited Pedro Tabera, president of Mercedes in Mexico, as saying that the carmaker was considering a possible cooperation with Nissan in the country. Tabera was quoted by El Financiero as saying that Mercedes is considering a number of alternatives, one of which is joint production with Nissan Mexicana.

He added that if Renault had a plant in Mexico, Mercedes could start a cooperation deal with French carmaker. He told El Financiero that if Nissan decides to build its luxury Infiniti model in Mexico, those vehicles could be powered by Mercedes engines.

A spokeswoman for Daimler at its corporate headquarters in Germany declined to comment on the report when pressed by Automotive News Europe, saying that they are not commenting on speculation about their future production.

Daimler is currently collaborating with Renault-Nissan to develop small cars and engines. Infiniti's new compact car will be based on Mercedes' front-wheel-drive platform, which also underpins the A class. [source: automotive news - sub. required]
