What is Mercedes?

Mercedes-Benz is one of the oldest and best-known car brands in the world. The company was founded in 1926 from the merger of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft and Benz & Cie.

However, the history of Mercedes-Benz goes back even further, to the invention of the automobile by Carl Benz in 1886 and the development of the first light petrol engine by Gottlieb Daimler in 1883.

During the First World War, Mercedes-Benz produced aircraft engines for the German army. After the war, the company concentrated on the production of luxury cars, which were known for their quality and technical progress.

During the Second World War, production at Mercedes-Benz was switched to war equipment, especially tanks and aircraft engines. After the war, however, the company was quickly rebuilt and was soon producing high-quality vehicles again.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Mercedes-Benz built on its reputation as a manufacturer of luxurious and reliable vehicles, including racing cars that were successful in international races.

In the 1980s, Mercedes-Benz acquired a majority stake in AMG, a company that specialised in the development of high-performance cars. In the 1990s, Mercedes-Benz also began to produce more environmentally friendly vehicles.

Today, Mercedes-Benz is part of the Daimler Group and produces a wide range of vehicles, from compact city cars to luxurious sedans and SUVs. The brand is known for its innovative technologies and its commitment to sustainability and environmental protection.
