Daimler battery factory put into operation, will be able to local market demand to make a quick and effective response, and can be adjusted according to demand for battery exports. While the total investment in the battery will cost more than 1 billion euros. Although Daimler is expanding battery pack production, lithium-ion batteries are still provided by third-party vendors and may lead to potential bottlenecks in battery supply once future demand is not accurately predicted.
The first and second battery plants (under construction) are located in Kamenz, Germany. Deutsche Accumotive GmbH & Co. KG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler GmbH, was founded in 2009 as a core company in the development and production of Mercedes-Benz and a number of smart brand hybrids and electric vehicles and highly sophisticated commercial vehicles.

At the end of the decade, at Nabern and Carmenz, Accumotive will have more than 1,000 employees, which are now twice as much.
The second battery factory is a carbon dioxide neutralization plant: Daimler's electric power production in the integrated factory, its production stage is essential for sustainable development. The production facility will be powered by combined heat and power and photovoltaic power plants and will be used in conjunction with fixed battery storage units. The new battery plant using the most advanced equipment and technology, will also be developed according to industry standards 4.0.
The third factory will be built in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim. Angtert Helm battery factory will be used as a Mercedes-Benz battery factory. In the future, the company will provide batteries for electric appliances and technology brands produced by the Sindelfingen automobile plant. The battery will be produced by a satellite factory located in Brühl.
The fourth battery factory will be located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Daimler recently announced a $ 1 billion investment in the battery factory.
While the fifth battery factory will be located in Beijing, operated by Beiqi. The new battery factory belongs to a project of Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. (BBAC), which is a joint venture between Daimler and Beiqi.
