Who Owns Mercedes-Benz?

Mercedes Benz Logo Closeup

You’ve been driving your Mercedes-Benz for a while now and you’re enjoying the comfort and sophistication that come with the brand. However, you may be wondering about the history of Mercedes-Benz, and who owns this line of luxury vehicles. Learn more about Mercedes-Benz with Mercedes-Benz of Warwick in Warwick by reading our guide below.



The Parent Company

For drivers in Providence who are wondering who owns Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-Benz of Warwick has the answer! Mercedes-Benz is owned by the German company Daimler, AG. Daimler, AG is known for creating luxury vehicles with state-of-the-art engineering and technology. The company’s headquarters are in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg.

Mercedes-Benz History

In 1901 Karl Benz created the first Mercedes-Benz car, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, and marketed it to the public. The Benz Patent Motorwagen was the first gasoline-powered vehicle that was made available to the public. Although only individuals with significant salaries could afford the car, it revolutionized how people saw “horseless” vehicles and their potential for how we could travel and work.

As Karl Benz was selling the Benz Patent Motorwagen, in 1902 Austrian automobile entrepreneur Emil Jellinek trademarked the name “Mercedes” after his daughter Mercedes Jellinek. As a Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (Daimler Motors Corporation) businessman, Jellinek worked to promote the potential for horseless vehicles and sell them to those in high society. Jellinek was selling Mercedes brand cars to billionaires such as Rockefeller, Astor, Morgan, and Taylor, which made Mercedes sales soar in upper social circles. In 1926, with the success of the Benz and Mercedes vehicles still building, Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler merged their companies, and the first Mercedes-Benz vehicles were produced.

The Modern Mercedes-Benz

Today, customers of East Greenwich can enjoy the continued success of the Mercedes-Benz luxury brand. The Mercedes-Benz inventory of sedans, SUVs, roadsters, convertibles, and hybrid vehicles means that there is a luxury car for everyone. Some of the most popular Mercedes-Benz vehicles are:
