First Hybrid Car is by Mercedes Benz

Mercedes ventured into the manufacturing adventure of creating a hybrid vehicle as early as 1906. The company built the Mercedes Mixte that had a top speed of a very impressive 75mph.

Introduced Crumbled Zones For Safety

The German manufacturer introduced the safety crumple zones in the Mercedes-Benz 220, 220 S, and 220 SE models in 1959. The idea was to have a bodywork that could absorb the kinetic energy of an impact and keep it in the crumple zones, thus protecting the driver and the passenger.

Inroduced ‘ABS

In 1978, Mercedes-Benz changed the relationship between driver and car with its anti-lock brakes. The inclusion of this driver assistance system forty years ago was the beginning of a wave of innovations that would impact the manufacturing of cars. In collaboration with Bosch, the anti-lock brakes helped maintain steering without locking the wheels in case of emergency braking. This new system debuted in the market in 1978 with the S-Class and later spread to other models. This line of manufacturing led to modern driving assistance systems.

First in Safety

Mercedes Benz was the first company to use safety crumple zones in their automobiles. In 1959, they began manufacturing their cars with crumple zones so that the impact of a crash would be redistributed. The Mixte had a gasoline engine and a dynamo, which generated electricity for two secondary rear wheel motors.

In conjunction with Bosch, Mercedes added anti-lock brake technology to their S-class cars in 1978 and all of their models shortly thereafter.
