The inventor of the automobile. Since the invention of the automobile by Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz in 1886, few manufacturers have shaped automotive his­tory as much as Daimler. As an automotive pioneer, Daimler willingly accepts the challenge of meeting its res­ponsibility to­­wards society and the environment and making future mobility safe and sustainable with groundbreaking technologies and high-quality products.

Individual mobility and the transportation of goods are foundations for growth and prosperity in every society. It is therefore all the more important to preserve this mobility for future generations. Daimler is facing up to this challenge with extensive technological expertise. Key pillars for sustainable mobility of the future are the development of innovative drives on the road to emission-free driving. With the development of alternative drive systems, Daimler is the only vehicle manufacturer to invest in hybrid drives, electric motors and fuel-cell systems as well as concepts that en­­sure the greatest possible traffic safety. Daimler is applying its entire store of knowledge and skills to this end.
