The Mercedes-Benz premium brand offers you a wide product portfolio - from compact to luxury vehicles. And the variety continues to grow: in the coming years, Mercedes-Benz will expand and renew its range of vehicles in all segments.
Since the first automobile, the Benz Patent Motor Car in 1886, Mercedes-Benz has stood for important automotive innovations. These include, for example, the passenger safety cell with crumple zone, the airbag and intelligent assistance systems. Mercedes-Benz applies for nearly 2000 patents per year, making the brand the European leader among premium car makers.
- By way of example, Mercedes-Benz has been investing in the development of alternative drive systems for some time and, with the B 250 e, has a mass-produced electric vehicle with very high everyday practicality in its product range.
- Another core technology on the way to emission-free driving is the plug-in hybrid. A total of ten models with this type of drive system will be available at dealers by 2017, including the previously introduced variants Mercedes S 500 e, C 350 e as a Saloon and Estate as well as the GLE 500 e 4MATIC and the GLC 350 e 4MATIC.
Among other things, excellent driver assistance systems that we group under the concept of Intelligent Drive ensure the safety of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles
In addition, our engineers are intensively researching innovative future technologies: with autonomous driving, we are setting industry-wide standards and already offer semi-autonomous driving functions. In addition, we are pushing ahead significantly with the complete networking of cars with their environment.
