Mercedes-Benz confirms production of C-Class Coupe

Mercedes Benz has just announced that it will be producing a 2011 C-Class Coupe. The German luxury automaker will build the two-door C-Class at its massive Bremen plant, with production slated to begin in 2011. The addition of the new Coupe gives Mercedes Benz three different variants on its C-Class vehicle, with a convertible also highly likely. The Bremen plant is the cornerstone of Mercedes production and employs 12,600 workers, it also makes the C-Class sedan, wagon, GLK, two E-Class variants, the SL and SLK.

With the C-Class Coupe officially going to production, many are interested to see how Mercedes will differentiate the smaller Benz from the larger, more expensive E-Class Coupe (pictured). Especially because, the E-Class already uses the C-Class platform, and matches up almost exactly in terms of dimensions to the C-Class Saloon.

What’s most likely is that Mercedes will shorten the C-Class platform to make the C Coupe physically smaller than the E Coupe. But all should be revealed by the time the Paris Motor Show opens in September.
