The art of engineering: the most beautiful form of art for us at Daimler Trucks
Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz laid the foundation for the modern transport industry more than 120 years ago. Over the past decades, Daimler’s truck and bus divisions have consistently set standards for the entire transportation industry - in terms of safety, fuel efficiency and driver and passenger comfort. Now it’s time for the next evolutionary step: emission-free, automated and connected driving. Daimler Trucks & Buses is working to bring these important technologies to high-volume series production, across brands, divisions and regions. In this way the company intends to take a major step closer to realizing its vision of CO₂-neutral transport and accident-free and contribute to the sustainability of global goods and passenger transport.
