Mercedes - German Luxury Car Maker

Given that they were the first to build a car it should probably come as no surprise that Daimler-Benz know what they are doing. Their most successful product of course is the famous Mercedes brand, one of the most well known luxury cars in the world. The company has come a long way since the beginning but they are still well known for their innovation and for their ability to build top quality cars. This has helped to make them one of the largest manufacturers in the world.

Mercedes Benz literally invented the car. Working independently Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler were amongst the first to build cars that ran on internal combustion engines. Benz got the first patent and is generally regarded as the inventor of the modern automobile. Both Benz and Daimler went off and started their own companies to produce cars and both were fairly successful. Daimler's most successful product being the Mercedes. In 1926 the two companies merged to form Daimler-Benz which would quickly grow into one of the most successful manufacturers of all time. The current Daimler-Benz company is one of the largest manufacturers in the world producing a wide range of products but they are still best known for their famous Mercedes Benz brand.

It should probably come as no surprise that the company that was founded by the guys how invented the car is one widely recognized as one of the most innovative manufacturers in the world, with the new innovations continuing right up to the present day. Not only did they invent the car the created the first radiator with a design that is still in use today. Mercedes have always been leaders when it comes to safety innovations, from being the first to put brakes on all four wheels in the twenties, to creating the safety cell in the fifties to anti-lock brakes in the eighties and electronic stability control today. These are some of the most important technological leaps when it comes to car safety and you can now find them on virtually all cars because Mercedes has allowed their competitors to use them in the interest of making cars safer.

Despite producing a wide range of products Mercedes are still generally best known as the maker of luxury cars. This has been their bread and butter for years and they do it very well. There are few companies that can produce a top luxury car as well as Mercedes. One of the reasons for their success is that they are widely known for the quality of their product, Mercedes cars frequently get top marks in consumer reports for their quality. This is an important part of building a luxury car but something a lot of their competitors struggle with. Despite their massive growth to become one of the largest companies in the world they have maintained that quality.
