Daimler at a Glance

Daimler is one of the world’s most successful automotive companies. With our Mercedes-Benz Cars & Vans, Daimler Trucks & Buses, and Daimler Mobility divisions, we are one of the leading global suppliers of premium and luxury cars and one of the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles. Daimler Mobility offers financing, leasing, fleet management, investments and insurance brokerage, as well as innovative mobility services.

Our company’s founders, Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz, made history by inventing the automobile in 1886. As a pioneer of automotive engineering, we see shaping the future of mobility in a safe and sustainable way as both a motivation and obligation. Our focus therefore remains on innovative and green technologies as well as on safe and superior vehicles that both captivate and inspire. We continue to invest systematically in the development of efficient powertrains – from high-tech combustion engines and hybrid vehicles to all-electric powertrains with battery or fuel cell – with the goal of making locally emission-free driving possible in the long term. Our efforts are also focused on the intelligent connectivity of its vehicles, autonomous driving and new mobility concepts. We regard it as our aspiration and obligation to live up to our responsibility to society and the environment.
