If you’re curious about the origins of Mercedes-Benz models and want to know where your vehicle that you drive around South Riding comes from, Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly is here to help!

Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing: Germany

The Mercedes-Benz brand was founded in Stuttgart, Germany, which is where the headquarters remains to this day.

  • Sindelfingen

Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing: Made in the USA

Several Mercedes-Benz models are manufactured at the Mercedes-Benz U.S. International plant located near Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This factory produced its first vehicle in February 1997. The models that are still produced at this facility include:

  • Mercedes-Benz GLE
  • Mercedes-Benz GLS
  • Mercedes-Benz GLE
  • Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Here, you’ll also find the Mercedes-Benz Visitor Center, which features a museum showcasing cars throughout Mercedes-Benz history.

How Do You Tell Where Your Mercedes-Benz Was Built?

Where was your car made? VIN lookup tools—like the one offered by VINDECODERZ—can help you identify your model’s country of origin! In fact, your vehicle’s VIN records origin data even more precisely, providing you with information on the plant where the vehicle was made. Precise VIN conventions can vary from year to year, and from generation to generation, so it’s best to ask an expert if you’re unsure of where your car was made.
