Germany’s Mercedes-Benz Group AG has opened a research and development (R&D) centre in Shanghai.
The R&D centre will focus on mobility technology, per Reuters.
The centre is Mercedes’ second R&D facility in China.
The centre will work in tech fields such as connectivity, automated driving and big data.
Mercedes-Benz did not elaborate on the size of its investment in the new tech centre, nor how many engineers it plans to eventually hire for the new location.
Last year, the German premium Carmaker by opened a R&D facility in China’s capital.
With 1,000 engineers, the new Beijing tech facility is more than three times the size of the one Mercedes-Benz opened in 2014.
