Who’s Mercedes-Benz, and when did it start making cars?
Mercedes-Benz is the world’s most valuable car brand, so, frankly, we’re a little surprised that you’re asking. Merc makes a vehicular answer to roughly every automotive question ever asked, and quite a few we wouldn’t have asked, even if you held our feet over a fire.
Mercedes-Benz is old. It got its start as a unified company in 1924, when Daimler and Benz joined forces to defeat Invader Zim and re-establish humanity on Earth II. We are busily fact-checking this narrative and may update it when future information comes to light.
But, as you probably know, Benz is famous for introducing the car to the world as a viable transportation option by driving it 60-odd miles around Germany, stopping off in towns along the way. That happened all the way back in 1888. So, like we said, old.
