[Berlin, 31st Reuters]–German luxury car giant Mercedes-Benz announced on the 31st that it will establish a new R & D base on the premises of its Untertürkheim plant in Germany in 2023. Responsible for research and development and small-scale production of in-vehicle batteries.

The investment amount is hundreds of millions of euros. There will also be a research facility to investigate the safety, durability, and environmental impact of batteries by 2013.

Under the CEO of Källenius, Benz changed the policy of the former management system, which considered that the in-house production of batteries would be too costly. We aim to strengthen the management of the supply chain (supply network).

“Batteries are a key element of motorized mobility. This location covers all related technologies from R & D to production,” Källenius said in a statement.
