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.

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.
