Where is Mercedes-Benz From?

What kind of car is Mercedes-Benz? You can start with “ground-breaking.” In fact, the first Mercedes-Benz was also the first internal combustion engine in a self-propelled automobile. Karl Benz invented the Benz Patent Motorwagen in the late 1800s, and the model was marketed to the public by Daimler Motors Corporation in 1901. Twenty-five years later, Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler merged their companies to create Mercedes-Benz as you know it today. The brand got its start in Germany, but where do they make Mercedes-Benz vehicles today? Depending on the model, a Mercedes-Benz may be produced at facilities across the globe. Most Mercedes-Benz manufacturers are located in North America and Europe, but select models are made in South America, Asia, and Africa.
