The Mercedes-Benz Slogan is “The Best or Nothing,” and it certainly embodies the quality of the vehicles the brand provides even today. From the infamous S-Class to the powerful GLS, this brand has plenty of vehicles that gives luxury vehicle shoppers here in Peoria an excellent driving experience.
The creator of Mercedes-Benz, Carl Benz, first submitted his motor car patent in 1886 at the imperial Patent Office in Berlin. This model became the Benz Patent Motor Car, which is the first car that Benz created, but the first car created – ever. It had no gears, a top speed of 7 miles per hour, and you had to push it uphill. Basic, but functional and most importantly? Unique! Nothing quite like this had ever been seen before.
Mercedes-Benz was actually two separate companies before they merged and created their first models: S, SS, and SSK. It’s no wonder the S-Class is so amazing today! This model has stuck around since it first was put into production. In 1888, Carl Benz’s wife, Bertha Benz took his car for a drive with her sons from Mannheim to Pforzheim in order to prove its functionality and capability.
Nowadays, the Mercedes-Benz models have advanced from the 3-wheel, no-gear car to many, many more models with even greater power than ever before.
