Daimler Trucks North America LLC has opened a $300 million plant in Mexico to produce the Freightliner brand's new flagship heavy-duty truck, the Cascadia. Annual capacity at the Saltillo, Coahuila, plant in northern Mexico is 30,000 units. The trucks will be sold in Mexico beginning late this year, and then in the U.S. and Canada. The truck plant is Daimler's second in Mexico, the other being located in Santiago, where Freightliner heavy- and medium-duty models are built for sale throughout the Americas.
