- Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant is the youngest passenger car production plant of Mercedes-Benz AG in Germany and an important part of the global Compact & Large Cars production network. The first Mercedes-Benz A-Class went off the production line at the Rastatt plant in 1997 and established the success story of the compact cars at Mercedes-Benz.
- As a lead plant, Rastatt manages the production of compact vehicles at the Kecskemét plant (Hungary), at BBAC in Beijing (China) and at the COMPAS joint venture plant in Mexico.
- The Rastatt plant produces the A- and B-Class, the GLA and the fully electric EQA (combined power consumption: 15.7 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km).
- Rastatt production covers a wide range of modern drive technologies with plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles.
- Since 2011 the Rastatt plant has already implemented various measures which have nearly halved the specific CO2 emissions per vehicle in production.
- Right next to the plant is the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt Customer Centre. Every day, around 200 vehicles are picked up there.
 The power consumption and the range have been determined on the basis of Commission Regulation (EC) 692/2008. The power consumption is dependent upon the vehicle configuration. Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the "Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen" [Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of all new passenger car models], which is available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (www.dat.de).
