125 years of innovation and unparalleled success
Mercedes-Benz has always been at the cutting edge of automobile development thanks to unique innovations and timeless style. It all began in 1886 with Karl Benz's patent Motorwagen, widely regarded as the first automobile. The engineers Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz, working independently, helped fashion the automobile into a modern means of locomotion. Over time, the brand became synonymous with excellence and a high-end offering. These credentials were also burnished through motor racing and numerous Grand Prix victories that helped consolidate Mercedes-Benz' mastery of leading-edge technology.
Passion and attention to detail
Mercedes-Benz has always been synonymous with luxury, driving pleasure, quality, comfort, reliability and technological innovation. Its models are renowned not only for their performance but for their elegance and no detail is neglected, no matter how small. There is a special focus on internal and external features as well as deluxe finishing in the selection and processing of materials. Its prestigious cars beautifully combine a sensual and sporty feel and are attractive to both men and women.
Building a safer, greener future
Mercedes-Benz is an international symbol of quality, powerful engineering and technological know-how in the domains of safety and the environment. Both its passenger and commercial vehicles are the result of relentless innovation that delivers ultra-sophisticated equipment and increasingly eco-friendly engines. The Mercedes-Benz "Blue Efficiency" label harnesses lightweight materials, tire rolling resistance and aerodynamics to obtain a significant reduction in vehicle CO2 emissions. It has also been a pioneer in car safety. Since the invention of ABS in 1978 and the airbag in 1980, numerous Mercedes-Benz leading-edge technologies have had a huge influence on automobile development. And it continues to innovate to come up with some of the world's safest cars: the Attention Assist system detects signs of fatigue to prevent drivers from falling asleep at the wheel; the prototype PRE-SAFE 360° is a new intelligent braking system that aims for accident-free driving by detecting collision risks.
