Mercedes-Benz Egypt selects local partner for assembling cars: Mercedes-Benz Egypt will partner with the Egyptian German Automotive Company (EGA) to assemble cars in Egypt, the company said in a statement yesterday (pdf). The contract was given to EGA after meeting the company’s standards and production requirements, the statement said. No details were provided on the value of the contract.
The first car should be completed in the second half of 2020, the German auto manufacturer said, adding that production will focus on SUVs that are not yet available in the Egyptian market. Mercedes-Benz Egypt last week added Abou Ghaly Motors, Ezz El Arab and German Auto Service to its retail network in Egypt.
