Leading through innovation

Even more than its meticulous engineering, Mercedes-Benz is defined by its continuous innovation. Since inventing the car in 1886, we’ve simply never stopped reinventing it.

What begins as a breakthrough becomes the standard for every car on the road.

Mercedes-Benz has a history of making history. Since the first car, Mercedes-Benz has set the pace for what all cars might someday become. With an ongoing stream of firsts in safety, performance and driving enjoyment, it’s an ever more exciting roadmap to the future. And while there’s a neverending roster of new achievements, there’s only one reason the world’s first automaker remains first in innovation. Carl Benz said it best: “The love of inventing never dies.”


The first car

In 1886, Carl Benz is awarded
German patent number 37435 for a three-wheeled, self-propelled
“Motorwagen”. With a rear-mounted single-cylinder engine,
the first automobile forever changes the way people move, and
sparks a legacy of innovation that continues to this day.

The first female driver.

“Bertha Benz, Carl’s wife,
decided to help promote his invention by taking it on a 120-mile
tour without his prior knowledge. She also served as her own
mechanic on the trip.”
