Daimler has announced that the next-generation of its Mercedes-Benz A- and B-Class vehicles will be built in Hungary.

"We are planning a new plant in Hungary to boost our competitiveness and to gain access to the potential of the eastern European markets," Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche said in a statement.

Daimler is expected to invest about 800 million euros in the new plant, which will be situated 80 km from the Hungarian capital Budapest and will create 2 500 jobs.

The new factory will produce additional variants of these vehicles, which could include a three-door cabriolet, an SUV, and an MPV.

Supply will be supplemented by Daimler's Rastatt plant in Germany, which currently builds the A- and B-Class.
