Mercedes-Benz origins trace to Karl Benz creating of the first gas-fueled auto, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, and patented, January 1886, and Gottlieb Daimler and designer Wilhelm Maybach converting a stagecoach by adding a gas motor. The Mercedes car was initially marketed in 1901 by Daimler Motors Corporation. In 1902, Emil Jellinek, an Austrian vehicle business entrepenuer who worked with DMG founded the trademark, naming the 1901 Mercedes 35hp after his little girl Mercedes Jellinek. The first Mercedes-Benz named vehicles were manufactured in 1926, after the merger of Karl Benz's and Gottlieb Daimler's organizations into the Daimler-Benz company. On June 28, 1926, Mercedes Benz was founded with the combining of Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler's two organizations. All through the 1930s, Mercedes-Benz manufactured the 770 model, an auto that was well known amid the German Nazi period. Adolf Hitler drove these autos amid his time in power, with bulletproof windshields. Most of the surviving models have been auctioned to private purchasers. One of them is on display at the Ottawa, Ontario War Museum. The pontiff's Popemobile has frequently been sourced from Mercedes-Benz. Mercedes-Benz has presented numerous technological and safety developments that later got to be normal in other vehicles. Mercedes-Benz is one of the most-known and established up car brands on the planet.

Mercedes Benz with the new naming system

For the 1994 model year, Mercedes-Benz revised the naming system. Models were divided into "classes" denoted by an arrangement of up to three letters (see "Current model range" above), followed by a three-digit (or two-digit for AMG models, with the number approximately equal to the displacement in litres multiplied by 10) number related to the engine displacement as before. Variants of the same model such as an estate version or a vehicle with a diesel engine are no longer given a separate letter. The SLR and SLS supercars do not carry a numerical designation.

The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is a line of full-size luxury grand tourers which was produced by Mercedes-Benz, from 1992 to 2014 in the US. (C215 1992-2005, C216 2006-2014) The name CL stands for the German Coupé Leicht (Coupé-Light) or Coupé Luxusklasse (Coupé-Luxury) The CL-Class is the coupé derivative of the S-Class full-size luxury saloon, upon which it shares the same platform. Formerly known as the SEC (Sonderklasse-Einspritzmotor-Coupé) and later S-Coupé, it was spun off into its own, separate name in 1996 and in 1997 for North American markets. The CL continued to follow the same development cycle as the S, though riding on a shorter wheelbase, and sharing the same engines albeit with less choice as only the higher-output powertrains are offered. The last generation of the CL was actually heavier than the S (considering equivalent trims, due to the roof engineering required to compensate for the lack of a central B-pillar). The last generation of the CL-Class, C216, was available in five models: CL 500 (CL 550 in some markets, with standard 4MATIC in Canada and the USA), CL 600, CL 63 AMG, CL 63 AMG(S) and CL 65 AMG. The CL 65 AMG was the most powerful model of the CL and the most expensive Mercedes-branded vehicle, slightly edging out its S-Class equivalent S65 AMG and the SLS. The Mercedes-Benz C216 is the last generation for the grand tourer Mercedes-Benz CL-Class. It replaced the C215 platform. In 2014 it was replaced by the C217 S-Class Coupe.

Maybach Motorenbau a defunct German car manufacturer that today exists as a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz. The company was founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach and his son, originally as a subsidiary of Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH, and it was known as Luftfahrzeug-Motorenbau GmbH until 1999. In 1960, Maybach was acquired by Daimler-Benz. The name returned as a standalone ultra-luxury car brand in the late 20th century and early 21st century, sharing significant components with Mercedes-Benz cars. After slow sales, Maybach ceased to be a standalone brand by 2013, and it became (in 2015) a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, which is owned by Daimler AG. As of 2018, Daimler produces an ultra-luxury edition of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class under the Mercedes-Maybach name.

The next iteration of the company’s range-topping SUV, a Maybach version said to cost somewhere in the region of $200,000 or about $42,500 more than the Acura NSX. power will be provided by a V8 engine with more than 560 horsepower on tap. The Maybach GLS has been characterized by Mercedes-Benz USA CEO Dietmar Exler as being a “halo car” for the brand, one that will spearhead other Maybach-badged models. The three-pointed star cautions Maybach will work only on high-end cars, so don’t expect to see a Maybach A-Class anytime soon.
