When people think of Mercedes-Benz, they think of German auto luxury. The creator of the first automobile, Karl Benz, as well as the inventor of the high-speed petrol engine, Gottlieb Daimler, joined forces to create the Mercedes brand around 150 years ago.
One of the things Mercedes is most well known for is its logo. When people see the Mercedes logo, they think of quality, tradition, and craftsmanship.

Mercedes Timeline With Key Models
In 1886, Karl Benz made his first motorized tricycle while Daimler put his efforts toward building a horseless carriage. In 1926, DMG and Benz formed to create the Daimler-Benz company to have the first Mercedes-Benz vehicle introduced just a year later.
The 1930s featured the debut of the biggest and most prestigious cars on the market:
It didn’t take long for Mercedes to rise to prominence as one of the most valuable auto manufacturers on the market.
After the success of the W15, Mercedes began to experience success outside of Germany with models such as the small family W23 car. During the 1930s, the release of Mercedes’ 260 D Model made its debut as the first diesel-run passenger vehicle.
Mercedes topped German car sales charts during the 1950s while some of the company’s best-looking cars such as the 190 and 300 SL models were introduced.
Starting off the new decade right, Mercedes released the W110 model, which was available in both two and four-door options. Style changes with Mercedes vehicles were standard during the 1960s as the decade featured car redesign from other companies such as Ford and Chevy.
Toward the end of the 70s, the Mercedes SL and SLC models were introduced as some of the most beautiful cars in the company’s history.
It’s incredible to think that Mercedes began almost 150 years ago and is still going strong.
Recent innovations from the company have included:
- Fully independent swing axle suspension systems
- Shock-absorber steering system
- Test-run engines
Selection of Mercedes vehicles today are:
- SUVs and Wagons
