Mercedes-Benz history began in 1886 when engineer Karl Benz invented the world’s first car. This invention pioneered a path of innovation and technology which remains with us today.

Whether we’re exploring ways to make motoring more sustainable with eMobility, or pushing the boundaries of design and technology with our future cars, innovation underpins everything we do at Mercedes-Benz. Since inventing the car, we’ve never stopped reinventing it.
