Mercedes-Benz SA (MBSA) is bidding for a R2 billion contract to produce the new C-Class in South Africa, the company said on Thursday.

The company on Thursday informed Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies of its bid to secure the contract which could result in 2000 new jobs.

MBSA president Hansgeorg Niefer told Davies it was "sharpening its pencil" to get a fair chance at the production which is due to commence in about four years' time.

"Our discussion with Minister Davies today was very positive. 

He has promised support and co-operation on the part of government through the Automotive Investment Scheme.

"We welcome this support in our effort to secure this contract for South Africa. We expect the outcome of the bid by year-end," said Niefer.
