Mercedes-Benz: The Origins
The origins of the Mercedes-Benz can be traced back to 1886 and Karl Benz’ creation of what is considered to be the first petrol-powered car. Since its creation more than a century ago, Mercedes-Benz has maintained a reputation for quality and reliability, and is an instantly recognizable name wherever you go in the world.
Partnering with Gottlieb Daimler allowed Karl to gain publicity and a certain distinction for their products, and to gain financial backing.
A third intriguing character came on the scene in 1897. A progressive thinker with an interest in sport, Emil Jellinek turned his enthusiasm to the dawning age of the automobile, an invention he knew would be critical for the future. It all started when he made the journey to Cannstatt to visit the Daimler factory and ordered his first Daimler car – a belt-driven vehicle with a six-hp two-cylinder engine.
What’s in a Name?
Not one to be satisfied with the status quo, Jellinek demanded faster and more powerful vehicles from DMG. Involved in the sport of racing, he would race under his pseudonym Mercédès, (meaning ‘grace’), the name of his daughter, ten years old at the time, and a name that was well known in motoring circles.
At the beginning of April 1900, Jellinek made an agreement with DMG concerning sales of cars and engines and the decision was taken to use the Jellinek’s pseudonym as a product name. In addition, it was agreed that a new engine “bearing the name Daimler-Mercedes” was to be developed.
This must have been a jolt of motivation for this top salesman, because two weeks later, he ordered 36 of the vehicles at a total price of 550,000 marks – in today’s money: 2.3 million euros. And on and on it went, establishing the success and standards of the Mercedes forever.
