powertrain assembly plant will build Mercedes-Benz 4-cylinder gasoline engines for Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz models. Production will begin in 2014, with installed capacity of 250,000 units per year once full ramp–up is achieved. Thus we are systematically broadening our manufacturing footprint in this important growth market. Today it manufactures 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines for the complete lineup of US-produced Nissan and Infiniti vehicles.
