Mercedes-Benz is a German manufacturer of automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. The company currently is a division of Daimler AG, which specializes in a number of fields and services globally. Mercedes-Benz was founded in 1881 and marketed its first vehicle in 1901, this makes the company the world’s oldest automotive brand still in existence. The brand has always been known for its quality and has become world known for its attention to detail and setting the standard in luxury. Mercedes-Benz has created many iconic cars such as the 1955 300SL, which incorporated distinctive gull-wing doors and was the first gasoline-equipped car with fuel injection. It was the Mercedes Benz 300SL that brought much attention to the company and helped to establish that it was capable of producing sporty vehicles. In 1998, Daimler AG made a bid and merged with Chrysler, forming DaimlerChrysler. The initial idea was to create a transatlantic company that would be able to build and provide vehicles in all niches that Mercedes-Benz did not have a presence in. This proved to be disastrous merger and Mercedes experienced some of the lowest quality and reviews in its history during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. The company began a serious turn around due to damaged corporate image and vehicle reviews. And finally In 2005, J.D. Power reviews brought the company up from its previous 25th place to 5th place for initial quality reviews. Mercedes won numerous awards and accolades for its turn around and in the process continued to distance itself from the Chrysler merger.
In 2007, Daimler sold Chrysler to Cerberus Capital Management of New York. Once the company was sold, this ended all development projects and part sharing between Chrysler and Mercedes. In recent years, Mercedes-Benz has been heavily involved in alternate engine research to cut down on fuel consumption. This is evident by a number of plug-in electric Mercedes models coming to the market as well as clean diesel technology currently being used. The company’s current lineup includes the C Class, E Class, CL Class, CLS Class, S Class, M Class, GLK Class, GL Class, G Class, R Class, SLK Class, SL Class, and the super car, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
