Mercedes-Benz AG

Mercedes-Benz is a German luxury automobile manufacturer with headquarters in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The Mercedes-Benz name first appeared in 1926 under Daimler-Benz, and is still a multinational division of the Daimler group. The familiar three-pointed star contained in a circle logo referring to “light and powerful engines for land, water, and air” was registered in 1937 by Daimler-Benz.

The Mercedes-Benz brand with its slogan ‘The Best or Nothing’ is one of the most recognized automotive brands worldwide and is known for luxury automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. Mercedes-Benz pioneered many technological and safety innovations over the decades that later became common in other vehicles. Mercedes-Benz is also one of the world’s oldest automotive brand still in existence today (2016), having produced the first petrol-powered car.

Mercedes-Benz’ history in South Africa dates back as far as 1952 when a large array of Mercedes cars, commercial vehicles and trucks were exhibited at the Van Riebeeck festival in Cape Town. This event led to the establishment of Mercedes-Benz dealerships throughout the country and eventually to the local manufacture of the brand.
