The Mercedes-Benz EQS enters production at Factory 56 in SindelfingenThe Mercedes-Benz EQS enters production at Factory 56 in Sindelfingen. It is the first all-electric model to do so at the site. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class saloon, the long-wheelbase version and the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class are already rolling off the production line at Factory 56.

The production of the EQS is an example of sustainable and CO2-neutral vehicle manufacturing at Mercedes-Benz. Due to maximum flexibility, the assembly of different models and drive types on one line is possible. Efficiency in production has also been significantly increased - which is partly due to the high level of digitalisation. The MO360 digital ecosystem forms the basis for production. The entire digitalisation strategy with its focus on people aims to provide the best possible support for the more than 1500 employees at Factory 56 in their daily work.
