Have you ever wondered about the history of Mercedes-Benz? It dates all the way back to 1926 in Stuttgart, a major city in Germany! If you’ve asked yourself “who owns Mercedes-Benz” or “who owns Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta,” the team at Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis has everything you need to know in the guide below.

Who Owns the Mercedes-Benz Corporation?

The Mercedes-Benz brand is a subsidiary of The Mercedes-Benz Group AG, which until February 2022 was known as Daimler AG. This multinational auto corporation also owns Mercedes-AMG®, Mercedes-Maybach, and the Smart Car, as well as owning shares in Daimler Truck AG and Aston Martin. The group has had many names over the years but was originally known as Daimler-Benz when it was founded in 1926, and still retains the original corporate headquarters of Stuttgart in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. The company has a reputation for upscale luxury vehicles and is the thirtieth-largest auto manufacturer in the world as of 2022!

However, if you’re an Atlanta Falcons fan and you find yourself asking “who owns Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” the answer isn’t what you think! The state of Georgia owns the legendary home of the Falcons, not the Mercedes-Benz Group AG.

A Brief History of Mercedes-Benz

Although the Daimler-Benz group was founded in 1926, the Mercedes-Benz brand actually has its roots in the late 1800s, when Karl Benz invented the very first gasoline-powered automobile! It was called the Benz Patent Motorwagen and was marketed to the public in 1901 by the Daimler Motors Corporation. 25 years later in 1926, the Mercedes-Benz of today was formed when Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler merged their companies into “Daimler-Benz.”

Today, Mercedes-Benz enjoys a reputation for top-notch luxury coupes, sedans, hybrids, and SUVs, as well as the AMG® high-performance division. Here are some of the most popular vehicles in the Mercedes-Benz lineup today:

  • Mercedes-Benz A-Class
  • Mercedes-Benz C-Class
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class
  • Mercedes-Benz GLC
  • Mercedes-Benz GLE
  • Mercedes-Benz GLS
  • Mercedes-Benz G-Glass SUV
