Reuters is claiming two sources have confirmed that Nissan and Mercedes would build small Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz luxury cars at Nissan's $2-billion Aguascalientes plant, opening later this year next to an existing Nissan factory.

The Mexican facility will build the new Infiniti Q30 for NA, the compact four-door hatchback will share engines and some chassis components with the Mercedes-Benz GLA and CLA, but if they will also be sharing an assembly line is still up in the air...

Andreas Renschler, head of production for Mercedes confirmed the uncertainty:

"This would be an option, if our compact cars business in North America performs well, it will be decided at the end of the year."

Being built in Mexico... not sure how I feel about that. How will the build quality be? Now i feel that since these are entry-level cars to these brands they might not care as much for the build quality in them as they would with higher up models

as long as quality control is good I don't see it being too big of a problem.

It lowers costs. Hopefully that means we get better pricing.

Yeah as long as they still focus on keeping quality control consistent with everywhere else they manufacture cars i don't see an issue.
