Mercedes-Benz is a devision of Daimler and is proud to be one of the leading car manufacturers in Germany. Our brand is particularly well known for our high-end cars and luxury vehicles including vans, buses, coaches and trucks. Our head office is based in Stuttgart.
The name Mercedes-Benz can be traced back to Karl Benz's 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which was first built in 1886 and we are proud to continue using his name to this day. Mercedes-Benz is now one of the most recognised automotive brands worldwide.
We now have manufacturing production facilities and assembly plants in over 20 countries, all of which strive to adhere to our slogan, “The best or nothing”.
As well as automobiles, we also produce the vans such as the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Vito, trucks that can be used for all applications and a wide range of buses and coaches, the first of which was produced by Karl Benz in 1895.
Mercedes-Benz produces a range of vans; Citan (a rebadged version of the Renault Kangoo), Vito and Sprinter.
Our range of cars is divided into four categories: core, off-road vehicle/SUV, 4-door coupé, and roadster. In October 2016, Mercedes unveiled the X-Class; a pickup truck built on the Nissan Navara. At the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the company announced the EQ-Class, a family of upcoming battery electric vehicles based on a modular platform, expected to represent up to 25% of its global sales by 2025.
Mercedes-Benz has developed multi concept cars with alternative propulsion, such as hybrid-electric, fully electric, and fuel-cell powertrains. At the 2007 Frankfurt motor show, Mercedes-Benz showed seven hybrid models, including the F700 concept car, powered by a hybrid-electric drivetrain featuring the DiesOtto engine. In 2009, Mercedes-Benz displayed three BlueZERO concepts at the North American International Auto Show. Each car features a different powertrain - battery-electric, fuel-cell electric, and gasoline-electric hybrid. In the same year, Mercedes also showed the Vision S500 PHEV concept with a 19 miles (31 km) all-electric range and CO2 emissions of 74 grams/km in the New European Driving Cycle.
