<p>We are pioneers in the construction of automobiles and we see it as both an incentive and an obligation to repeatedly put our innovative capabilities to the test in a quest for groundbreaking technologies and products that are secondto none. The first motor car, the first production automobile with a diesel engine, the first safety body – these and many other milestones demonstrate our determination to actively shape the mobility of the future.</p> <p>That is not to say our innovative drive is focused solely on our vehicles, it is also striving towards sustainable mobility. The key question: what is the best way to improve our vehicles' safety, efficiency and quality even further? One way is with the climatic wind tunnels at the Mercedes-Benz Technology Center in Sindelfingen. This facility recreates extreme weather conditions indoors and enables us to develop new vehicles and components efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner.</p>
