The latest increase in our brand value is a first class achievement by the entire Mercedes-Benz team, which makes us all very proud.

With the strategic realignment of the company in 2021, the brand’s core was also refined. From now on, the brand with the star stands for “Desire for Iconic Luxury”. The company thus combines two essential characteristics: Firstly, its strong roots as a luxury automobile manufacturer that has created numerous style-defining icons. And on the other hand, the pioneering spirit with which Mercedes-Benz, as an innovation leader, drives forward the development of the automobile. Mercedes-Benz is focusing more than ever on the radiance of the brand, which has a culture-shaping effect, and is carefully developed further while still honouring the brand's heritage. The goal is to shape the digital age by creating the most desirable vehicles and services in the world.
