By 2020, Daimler will invest about €1.5 billion ($1.755 billion) in the Mercedes-Benz plant Sindelfingen as part of this safeguarding of the future. The plant will be modernised comprehensively and put on a sustainable foundation. In addition, another €600 million will be invested in research and development at the Sindelfingen location.
