World-famous manufacturers of luxury commercial, industrial and private vehicles
German firm MERCEDES-BENZ is one of the most famous names in the world of vehicle manufacturing. The firm was formed from the merger of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft and Benz & Cie in 1926, at which point the famous three pointed star design was adopted as the company logo. After becoming the first manufacturer of petrol-powered automobiles, MERCEDES-BENZ rapidly acquired a reputation for producing luxury vehicles that specialised in reliability and high performance. From the start, these qualities were extended to its popular selection of commercial and industrial vehicles, which were purchased by companies across the world to deal with demanding challenges such as the movement of troops during wartime. Nowadays, aside from their iconic personal cars, the company continues to manufacture a wide range of industrial and commercial vehicles. These include a number of different models of transporter vans, personnel carriers, trucks and buses, as well as the best-selling Sprinter range of vans. Being a global brand, MERCEDES-BENZ also operates a network of manufacturing facilities across the globe, with factories manufacturing their industrial vehicles in Argentina, Brazil, Jordan, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, Vietnam and the United States. The modern range of MEREDES-BENZ trucks also includes innovative features such as Predictive Powertrain Control, which helps to reduce fuel consumption, while the company has also been a pioneer in the field of self-driving vehicles.
