From 1896 until today
Originally operating as an independent company, Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft launched the world's first truck onto the market in 1896. The first diesel-powered trucks were built in Stuttgart in 1923. The Mercedes star adorns the most cutting-edge and powerful trucks to this day.
