Envisioning, designing, engineering, testing and certifying the most desirable cars in North America.
At Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America, we develop and certify cars for the US and the world in six locations. Our work ranges from EV battery research to hybrid powertrain calibration and certification, from telematics to autonomous driving software, and from advanced exterior design to user experience design (UX). It is not just about cars, it’s also about creating the latest and greatest software, cutting-edge technology, and groundbreaking innovation.
In Ann Arbor and Long Beach, our test and certification teams ensure the integrity, and compliance of our products with the highest legal, technical, and ethical standards. We push charging, driver-assistance, emissions and telematics systems to the limits during laboratory and field tests to ensure our vehicles meet our customer’s high expectation and regulatory requirements.
