History Of Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes Benz is a German manufacturer of automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. It’s a division of its parent company, Daimler AG. The name first appeared in 1926 but its origins trace back to Daimler's 1901 Mercedes, and to Karl Benz's 1886 Benz Patent Motor wagen.
Karl Benz's creation of the first petroleum-powered car, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, was patented in January 1886. Gottlieb Daimler and engineer Wilhelm Maybach's converted a stagecoach wagon by the addition of a petroleum engine, later that year.
