Company
We are one of the world’s most successful automotive companies. With its divisions Mercedes-Benz Cars, Daimler Trucks, Mercedes-Benz Vans, Daimler Buses and Daimler Financial Services, the Daimler Group is one of the biggest producers of premium cars and the world’s biggest manufacturer of commercial vehicles with a global reach. Daimler Financial Services provides financing, leasing, fleet management, insurance and innovative mobility services.
 
 
The company’s founders, Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz, made history with the invention of the automobile in the year 1886. As a pioneer of automotive engineering, we continue to shape the future of mobility today: Our focus is on innovative and green technologies as well as on safe and superior automobiles that appeal to and fascinate our customers. For many years now, Daimler has been investing continually in the development of alternative drive systems with the goal of making emission-free driving possible in the long term. So in addition to vehicles with hybrid drive, we now have the broadest range of locally emission-free electric vehicles powered by batteries and fuel cells. This is just one example of how we willingly accept the challenge of meeting our responsibility towards society and the environment.
