Mercedes Benz – A Historical Perspective

I am always asked “How did you ever get in this business?” and my answer is always the same…I love Mercedes.  One of my life’s highlights was recently visiting the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.  I was in awe not only of the cars, but how this company has shaped the automotive industry and continues to do so everyday.  Below are some of the invention highlights by this wonderful company.  Enjoy.

1886 – The first car.  Car Benz is awarded the German patent #37435 for a 3 wheeled, self propelled “Motor-wagon”.  Rear mounted, single cylinder engine, this first automobile changes forever the way people move and sparks a legacy of innovation that continues to this day.

1894 – Honeycomb radiator

1910 – Multi-valve engine

1921 – Supercharged engine

1934 -  4 wheel independent suspension

1936 – Diesel passenger car

1978 – Antilock Braking system (ABS)

1982 – 4-Matic All Wheel Drive (AWD)

1995 – Electric Stability Control (ESP)

1997 – Smart Key

2000 – Tele Aid/mbrace (navigation system)

2010 – Attention Assist:  Dynamic & Intuitive Control Experience (DICE)
