Who Owns Mercedes-Benz?

2019 mercedes-benz c-class sedan silver



You’re likely already aware that Mercedes-Benz is one of the world’s leading luxury automakers, known for their insistence on pushing the boundaries of car technology. However, do you know who owns the Mercedes-Benz Corporation? Let Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich help you discover more about this world-renowned luxury brand.

What Company Owns Mercedes-Benz?

Many automakers have been handed off from owner to owner over the years, so you might wonder about what company owns Mercedes-Benz today. Mercedes-Benz Corporation has been a division of a larger German automobile manufacturer, Daimler AG—but as of February 1, 2022, Daimler AG is now officially known as Mercedes-Benz AG! Although nothing significant about the company’s structure has changed, the new name reflects the fact that Mercedes-Benz is known and loved all around the world! The brand’s HQ continues to be located in Germany in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg.

Although Mercedes-Benz AG owns the brand Mercedes-Benz, if you’re wondering who owns the Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz stadium, this is actually owned simply by the state of Georgia itself.

Mercedes-Benz History

Who created Mercedes-Benz? Founder Karl Benz was a German automobile engineer who came to fame in the late 1800s after inventing the first automobile that ran on gasoline, the Benz Patent Motorwagen. This vehicle would go on to be sold publicly in 1901 by Daimler AG, which was then known as the Daimler Motors Corporation. It wasn’t until 1926 that Mercedes-Benz, as we know it today, was born. At that time, Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler unified their manufacturing companies and began producing and selling cars under the Mercedes-Benz moniker.

Why choose Mercedes-Benz? This brand’s appeal starts with its lineup of powerful and luxurious vehicles, but there’s more than one reason to look for a model with the three-pointed star. For many drivers, the desire to participate in an unparalleled lineage is also an important factor! You’ve got the basic facts of Mercedes-Benz history, but there are plenty of other things to know about Mercedes-Benz:

  • Karl Benz didn’t just patent the first automobile. He was also the first person to receive a driver’s license! Gottleib Daimler anticipated Benz’s 1886 achievement by inventing the first genuine motorcycle in 1885.
  • The history of Mercedes-Benz might look very different without the contributions of Bertha Benz, who funded her husband’s innovations and inventions. Bertha also developed and suggested improvements to the wire insulation, brake pads, and fuel lines of early motorcars! She even took the Patent Motor Car on the world’s first road trip, in 1888.
  • Although hybrid and electric vehicles have only recently returned to the limelight, the company that would become Mercedes-Benz invented the world’s first hybrid gas-electric car in 1906!
  • Mercedes-Benz has introduced an extraordinary range of innovations over the years, including four-wheel brakes and safety crumple zones. They even debuted powerful self-driving technology as early as 1995—and this technology lives on in today’s automation efforts.
