The love of never dies — the Benz Patent-Motorwagen to the reinvention of the car.

It was on January 29, 1886 Carl Benz filed an in Berlin for a patent on his three-wheeled car. Ever since, day has been considered the official of the motor car, which, in celebrates its 125th anniversary. At the time as Benz, Gottlieb was developing the first four-wheeled car. In this way, independently of each other, the fathers of today’s Daimler AG and its successful Mercedes-Benz core laid the foun-dation stone for all passenger cars, commercial and buses. The company that the motor car has since that gone on to shape its development diversely and endur-ingly than any motor vehicle manufacturer in all relevant areas, from technology to comfort and safety to design.

Innovation has always the key to success for a car manufacturer and is set to become more important in future. the courage to go in search of new ideas, would be no motor car; and innovation, there would be no Mercedes-Benz, the inventor of the motor has always pressed ahead with the development of that of transport. For instance, the company has underpinned its claim to technological with over 80,000 applications since 1886, the in which Carl Benz and Daimler, respectively, unveiled Patent-Motorwagen and motorised carriage. As the first car, the Benz is the symbol of pioneering spirit par In its day, the exquisitely engineered made it clear at first that a new age of mobility had dawned. motorised carriage was the first car with four wheels.

two vehicles represented the start of a success story – a story has continuously had new chapters added to it by For, time and time it has been trendsetting inventions the Stuttgart-based car manufacturer that resulted in the horseless carriage, was initially said by critics to no future, evolving not only an icon of personal freedom, but into a significant factor the economy. Alongside the first bus and the motor truck, the company’s important innovations also the first modern passenger the Mercedes 35 hp, which was presented in 1900.

Mercedes 35 hp: the prototype of all passenger cars.

At the turn of the the Mercedes 35 hp, the prototype of all modern cars, was the definition of a fundamentally new and since prevailing vehicle it marked the transition from the motor carriage to the motor car as we it today. The decisive technical were its long wheelbase, track, low centre of gravity and steering column. These created the basis for comfortable and driving, something that was turned into reality in a

There are also some features such as the elongated and the honeycomb radiator, which, integrated into the front was to finally solve the hitherto problem of how to cool the engine, apart from emerging as a mark of the brand. With its crankcase, the powerful four-cylinder served as a model for today’s current lightweight design and furthermore, installed low in the frame. Its valves were controlled by a this significantly improving the of operation, stability at idle and The construction principle of engine at the final drive to the rear was to establish itself in the long as the conventional drive layout.

The Mercedes – the first modern-day car.

The 35 hp was the first vehicle to sport the brand name and went in history as the first modern-day car. Many other were to copy this concept, which proved to be in every respect. Mercedes-Benz from an early date its claim to be the leader in technology and

Spirit of innovation as a driving behind car development.

Thanks to its creativity, Mercedes-Benz has been in driving ahead automotive with a succession of new ideas at constantly reinventing the concept of mobility and opening up new areas of Its power of innovation has allowed to evolve into an automotive with a unique and diverse offering. Today, the brand the star encompasses a range of that includes compact cars, such as the A-Class, and saloons, such as the S-Class; like the Sprinter; buses the Citaro; and heavy-duty trucks as the Actros. The smart brand to the product portfolio with a that is for many the perfect runabout. Today’s smart dates back to a Mercedes-Benz presented in the early 1980s, a short-distance transport vehicle. The concept vehicle was the starting of a twin-track development that rise in the 1990s to the company’s compact car: the A-Class and the city coupé, the predecessor of smart fortwo.

Time and again, Mercedes-Benz has been at the of new concepts of personal mobility and has opened up entirely new market For example, the SLK, which was in 1996, was the first compact roadster. This was followed one later by the M-Class, the first SUV, which owed its to experience gained by Mercedes in connection with all-wheel technology for the legendary G-Class and the The most recent example is the which in 2004 established the of the four-door coupé. What is the sheer breadth of technical to have first entered the in Mercedes models is proof the inventor of the motor car has consistently a leading role in all key aspects of the development of this means of – from drive technology to and comfort through to design.

engine technology: a driving in all areas.

Mercedes-Benz has been a in engine technology for 125 years. The petrol engine was, in the sense of the word, the driving behind the invention of the motor The Daimler 8 hp Phaeton, unveiled in was the first road-going vehicle to a four-cylinder engine. In 1923 launched the first diesel-engined Another trendsetting Mercedes was a diesel engine suitable for use in cars, which was introduced in in the world’s first volume-produced passenger car, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D.

In the that have since Mercedes-Benz has continued to set a succession of milestones in the development of the compression-ignition Numerous technological innovations, as the common rail diesel with turbocharger, have in greater power and torque to better fuel economy and exhaust emissions. Today, the with the star is present in all of the market with a range of powered by quiet-running, high-torque and CDI engines which — on their power output consume up to ten times less than the diesel pioneer of

BlueTEC: making the diesel as as the modern petrol engine.

BlueTEC, Mercedes-Benz has additionally a technology for effective reduction of emissions, especially the emissions of oxides. Up to 90 percent of NOx emissions in the gas are broken down into nitrogen and water, making the engine as clean as the modern engine. Passenger cars BlueTEC have been from Mercedes-Benz since currently both in the E- and S-Class and in the SUVs of the GL-, R- and M-Class.

originally for Mercedes-Benz commercial BlueTEC made its debut in a truck in 2005, after it was adapted for application in passenger This example illustrates one of the particular strengths: in-house technology transfer, which to ensure that innovations great benefits for the customer are to be implemented quickly and systematically the entire product range.

Modern Mercedes-Benz engines great future potential.

The potential of the internal-combustion engine is by Mercedes-Benz with the 2010 of its new S 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, the first five-litre car in the class. The first four-cylinder in the over 60-year successful of the S-Class – a highly efficient diesel – achieves a fuel of just 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the (New European Driving With CO2 emissions of 149 g/km, the S 250 CDI is the first vehicle in its class to the 150 gram mark.

From the compressor engine to the modern petrol engine.

The inventor of the car has also played a key role in the of the spark-ignition engine. Back in the 1920s, the then Daimler Company adapted mechanical which had originally been for aircraft engines, for use in motor Thanks to the compressor technology embodied, the Mercedes 6/25 hp and hp models offered greater and higher efficiency than naturally aspirated vehicles.

installed the first series-produced direct-injection petrol engine in its 300 SL sports car of 1954. What at that time above all to the power output is today by Mercedes engineers, in combination other measures, to increase the i.e. to achieve a significant in consumption while at the same raising the power output.

The strategy for the internal-combustion engine of and tomorrow is: consistent use of direct in both petrol and diesel downsizing, turbocharging, variable timing. And, with the in autumn 2009 of the new four-cylinder direct-injection petrol engine in the Mercedes-Benz set about putting strategy into practice from the four-cylinder through to the engine and in all relevant model The result: high power with good fuel and correspondingly low CO2 emissions.

BlueDIRECT: the petrol engine as economical as the

Efficiency at the highest level is the hallmark of a generation of six- and power units that launched in 2010 in the S-Class, and the new CLS. While each of the offers increased power and in comparison with its predecessor, consumption – in the new CLS, for example has been lowered by up to 25 percent. means that, where efficiency is concerned, the modern direct-injection petrol engines Mercedes-Benz have moved a step closer to their counterparts. The increase in efficiency is due in to a series of targeted BlueEFFICIENCY especially the ECO start/stop function, is already standard equip-ment in models and which by mid-2011 be made available by Mercedes-Benz its entire product range in 50 models.

Pioneer in alternative technologies.

Mercedes-Benz was also off the mark in the field of alternative technologies. As early as 1906, for the first time equipped cars, trucks, buses and vehicles with battery-electric or drives. In the 1970s, development of the and hybrid drive was revived and promoted.

Building on this wealth of experience, Mercedes-Benz has a series of modern vehicles alternative drives that the way to an ultimately emission-free mode of

These include the S 400 HYBRID saloon, unveiled in 2009, was the first European-manufactured hybrid car and also the first series-produced to feature advanced lithium-ion technology. Soon after Mercedes-Benz brought out three electric cars in rapid the A-Class E-CELL and the Vito van with battery-electric drive as as the fuel-cell-powered B-Class F-CELL. The line-up of electric cars is off by the smart fortwo electric which has been heralded as a new development in urban mobility zero local emissions.

there’s a bit of Mercedes in every motor car.

Nowhere in the world is there a that has invested more in the of automotive safety than For 70 years now, the safety at Mercedes have been at work studying the causes of lessening their consequences and to avoid accidents. Mercedes’s commitment is demonstrated by no fewer three anniversaries in 2009: 70 of safety development, 50 years of the passenger compartment and 40 years of research.

As far as passive safety is the focus is on affording the vehicle the best possible protection in the of an accident. An example of this is the passenger compartment with zones, which was patented by in 1951 and went into production for the first time in in the 220 S and 220 SE Fintail models. Seat and airbag are further examples of that were introduced series production by Mercedes-Benz as solutions to real-world problems. they are a self-evident part of the experience of every motorist. explains why it can be said that a bit of Mercedes-Benz in every modern-day car.

Lessening the consequences of — avoiding accidents

Active safety is at the centre of to reach the goal of accident-free In pursuit of this goal, has developed a number of innovations are capable of lessening the severity of or of preventing them entirely. The controlled ABS and ESP® are Mercedes that have demonstrably to a significant reduction in the frequency of Once again, these systems are today standard in virtually all cars. The ABS anti-lock system was introduced in 1978 in the 116 S-Class, while the airbag was in 1981 in the Series 126 S-Class. brought out the ESP® electronic program in 1995 in the Series 140 Coupé, before then extending it to all model series.

was the first car manufacturer in the world to active and passive safety within this system, further enhancing the degree of afforded to vehicle occupants. The of PRE-SAFE® in 2002 op-ened new chapter in the history of automotive Mercedes-Benz systematically bases its technology developments on what happens in accidents and also on the from its own in-house accident activities. Innovative systems as the Active Blind Spot or ATTENTION ASSIST address causes of accidents such as and driver fatigue.

Ride comfort: a traditional strength.

Ride comfort is a Mercedes strength. Wide long wheelbase and tailor-made systems – this is the basis on Mercedes-Benz has for over a century a standard of comfort on long that is typical of the brand. As as 1931, Mercedes-Benz set an important in terms of chassis technology its 170 model, which was the first passenger car to feature independent on all four wheels (swing This design made for an new driving experience, which was better at compensating for irregularities in the surface, thereby reducing not road roar but also vibration.

Time and time again, has been a trailblazer with new designs, such as the single-joint axle, which was launched in and the diagonal swing axle, was unveiled in 1968. Both com-bined improved driving with additionally enhanced comfort. Then, in 1961, new were set with the first air system in the 300 SE luxury saloon. In 1982, the multi-link rear system in the new compact class a technological sensation. This system al-lowed for optimal of the independently suspended rear by means of five three-dimensionally links on each wheel. The rear suspension system was extended to all Mercedes-Benz saloons, cabriolets and sports cars rear-wheel drive and has been by many other manufacturers.

comfort: intelligent systems the driver’s physio-logical well-being.

The of maximum possible simplicity and with regard to vehicle dates back to the early of the brand. Already in 1902, the model designation Mercedes new Mercedes models boasted the that had been made in of easier vehicle operation. at Mercedes-Benz, maximum comfort much more than driving and high-quality features. All of our solutions are intended to improve the condition and to consistently relieve strain by means of many measures that are painstakingly with one another. Operating ergonomics, air conditioning, low noise handling properties and many factors affect a driver’s behind the wheel, and thus his or her ability to keep an overview of the situation. After all, a relaxed driver is also a driver.

Mercedes-Benz researchers been investigating this topic, called physiological for many years, and Mercedes-Benz has applied their findings to its series-production vehicles. As a result, it has demonstrated that Mercedes stay fit and focused for a longer Prime examples of the progress in this field are the carefully intuitive control and display and the intelligent driving assistance which turn the motor car a partner that thinks with the person behind the

Mercedes-Benz design: Design developing through the interplay tradition and a future-oriented approach.

At design develops as a result of the between the brand’s consciousness of and its orientation towards the future. The design of the motor car was decisively by the Lightning Benz, which was in 1909, for the innovative design of this record-breaking racing car was for the time based on aerodynamic while at the same time an air of supreme dynamism.

While powerfully modelled lines the Mercedes-Benz models of the 1920s, the beginning of the 1930s the design switched gradually to gentler, lines and rounded form Highlights of this evolution the 500 K from 1934 and its outwardly identical successor, the 540 K, which was in 1936. With their forms and elegant, flowing they were considered of perfect beauty.

1953: of modern car design.

In 1953 stepped into the age of modernity its 180 model. This saloon was by its so-called three-box design the third box, after end and passenger compartment, being the compartment. The self-supporting unitary not only impressed because of its stability and greater crashworthiness, but it was significantly more modern in Compared with the traditional form with its pronounced separate headlamps, side boards and short rear the unitary-structure models also a number of practical advantages: a interior, better visibility, a drag coefficient, reduced noise and a considerably larger compartment.

Many outstanding models have significantly the design evolution of the motor Often described as a design the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL gull-wing embodied and class like no other car of its It remains to this day a highly dream car and in 1999 was voted car of the century by an international jury of car The 300 SL was the first Mercedes-Benz road to sport a horizontal air inlet with the star in the middle. new front section was to become the of all future SL touring sports

Launched in 1959, the so-called 220 S and 220 SE Fintail models also set new with their inimitable which united function elegance. Known officially as the tail fins were at beautiful and also useful for and, in combination with the all-round visibility, anticipated the in customer expectations.

Proven elements combined with new

As model-specific characteristics of unmistakable identity, present-day Mercedes-Benz frequently exhibit stylistic from the brand’s past. include, for example, the curving of the current E-Class family, are reminiscent of the unitary-structure models of the or the fins and lateral ventilation on the SL, the basic form of which dates back to the 1950s. classic elements, however, are in all reinterpreted with a contemporary In this way, Mercedes-Benz steers clear of fashionable, short-lived retro trends. the designers at Mercedes-Benz seek to the rich heritage of the company’s car by combining proven stylistic of the brand with new ideas, continuously evolving the design.

pursues a long-term design which guarantees that a is always recognisable as a Mercedes. In endeavour, the designers at Mercedes a sophisticated design idiom in elements that make a recognisable at first sight as a are combined with a distinct philosophy typical of each model series, which to each vehicle having its own character. For example, the SUV models are different from the saloons, and sports cars.

The final is an attractive blend of visual and unmistakable brand identity, the design idiom remaining in every detail – modern, but ‘trendy’.

The same principle applies to design and is systematically put into at Mercedes-Benz. Depending on the character of the material qualities, forms and elements are developed and executed in a specific to the model series and particular model, with, again, individuality and overall being given clear over overarching uniformity. design, which is becoming an important part of overall design, today contributes than ever to keeping the fascination of beauty for years to A car’s interior is seen as a space in which the owner a lot of time.

A preview of Mercedes-Benz’s future idiom is afforded by the F 800 Style vehicle, which is technology and design statement in one. The external appearance is characterised by its wheelbase, short body and sensually flowing roof The exciting coupé-like side allied to the balanced proportions, in a stylishly sporty appearance further develops the Mercedes-Benz idiom.

Room for creative

Creativity has been written for 125 years at the inventor of the motor German engineering and Swabian have created a brand of world standing. The company creativity by making room for thinking and working, thereby that the source of innovation never run dry.

In order to its innovative edge, the company has a global knowledge network to employees from research and contribute their know-how a wide range of different Last year, the company was to retain its position as the premium car with the most patent Over half the total of filed applications relate to technologies, as many as 720 of which the drive system (35 percent).

progress has been achieved all in the fields of energy efficiency and aftertreatment as well as fuel-cell and technology. By continuing to invest in research and development, the company is the foundations for further maintaining its standard of innovation over the term.

Mercedes-Benz: the most luxury brand in the world.

to its systematic innovation strategy, occupies a leading position in the table of the world’s most brands. This is backed up by the 2010 international studies, confirm the special position by the brand with the star in no than three categories: valuable German brand, valuable global premium car and most valuable global brand.

Nothing but the best – today and in future.

It was Carl who said: The love of inventing dies. And it was Gottlieb Daimler who up with the famous maxim The or nothing. Mercedes-Benz has remained to these guiding principles for 125 years. The spirit of innovation, one of the key forces, is firmly rooted in our culture — forever the goal of guaranteeing personal also for future generations and each individual customer the optimal vehicle for their needs. This innovation is on Mercedes-Benz’s systematic research which led at the beginning of the 1970s to the establishment of a separate research Today, Mercedes-Benz has at its disposal a knowledge network with 19,000 researchers and developers the world – an interdisciplinary think full of pioneering spirit, and motivation, for continuing in future to the best cars in the world.
