The hot sales of China-made Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans have put its production line in Beijing running at full capacity, and now Beijing Auto’s Daimler venture has revamped its Chrysler production line for making the all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedans, Beijing Youth Daily reported today.

“Since Chrysler pulled out of Daimler’s Chinese venture with Beijing Auto — Beijing Benz-Daimler Chrysler (BBDC) — last year, the Chrysler production line in Beijing has been revamped and will be used for producing Mercedes-Benz C-Class and all-new E-Class sedans as well as Beijing Auto’s own brand “Beijing” sedans.

The joint venture BBDC has a total production capacity of 100,000 units, with daily output of 50 Chrysler (300C and Sebring) sedans and 200 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans. As lots of Chrysler’s auto parts remain and some orders have come in, the venture has never totally stopped its production of the 300C and Sebring models.
