With 30 hydrogen refuelling points in the works, Germany is set to lead the way in Europe on the development of a public hydrogen supply infrastructure
Karl Benz's hobby brought him to a bicycle repair shop in Mannheim owned by Max Rose and Friedrich Wilhelm Eßlinger. In 1883 the three founded a new company, Benz & Company Rheinische Gasmotoren-Fabrik, referred to as, Benz & Cie. which produced industrial machines in Mannheim.
In 1886, Carl Benz built a motorized tricycle and later a four-wheeler, the Victoria, was built in 1893.
In 1882, some short distance away, Gottlieb Daimler and his partner Wilhelm Maybach developed the first high-speed four-stroke engine which was completed in 1883.
October 1883, Mannheim, Benz founded the firm Benz & Cie.
November 1890, Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG) was formed.
In 1899, Emil Jellinek, started racing under his pseudonym Mercédès, which referred to the team and driver.
December 22, 1900, Emil Jellinek, recieved a car developed by Wilhelm Maybach, the chief engineer at DMG, for his race team. This car "with its low center of gravity, pressed-steel frame, lightweight high-performance engine and honeycomb radiator, it featured numerous innovations and is regarded today as the first modern automobile" and was call a 'Mercedes'
June 23, 1902, Emil Jellinek legally registered 'Mercédès' and obtained permission to call himself Jellinek-Mercedes.
June 1909, Gottlieb Daimler and The DMG had both a three-pointed and a four-pointed star registered as trademarks and was using Mercedes as a brand name.
1924, DMG and Benz & Cie., formed a separate and competitive syndicate.
June 1926, DMG and Benz & Cie., merged to form Daimler-Benz AG. "At this point a new trademark was designed, which brought together the main characteristics of both the existing emblems - the world-renowned three-pointed star belonging to Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft was surrounded with its trade name 'Mercedes' as well as that of the equally famous name 'Benz', whose laurel wreath entwined the two names together."

4.25.13 Nissan building Mercedes-Benz engines in the USA:
Nissan will build Mercedes-Benz 4 cylinder gasoline engines in Nissan's North American, Decherd, Tennessee engine plant. The agreement is for 250,00 engines per year starting in 2014. One half of the production run will go into the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans from the USA based Mercedes-Benz, Alabama plant. If that is not enough to keep track of, the other half of the Nissan USA built Mercedes-Benz engines will find their way into Nissan's Infinity entry-level compact, said to be based on the Etherea concept car.
So if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it is therefore a German-Japanese-USA car. Right! But which one? Or does it matter any more.
