FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Daimler on Friday said it will start building a
battery plant as part of its planned $1 billion investment to upgrade its
factory in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which has also started to produce a new
sports utility vehicle, the GLE. The investment comes as the parent of
Mercedes-Benz prepares to launch an electric sports utility vehicle, the
EQC, as part of a broader assault on a sector currently dominated by Tesla.

"We aim to play a pioneering role in the development of e-mobility and are
well-prepared to accomplish this mission," said Daimler board member Markus
Schaefer.

Mercedes-Benz is preparing six factories to produce EQ electrified vehicles,
and to manufacture eight battery plants as the German carmaker shifts from
combustion to electric cars. Daimler already has a battery manufacturing
facility in Kamenz, Germany, and is building further plants in Beijing and
Bangkok.

Daimler said its home plant in Sindelfingen will be the center of competence
for building large autonomous and electric cars. Sindelfingen currently
makes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class model.
