History of German Automobiles
Germany is considered the birthplace of automobiles, and the history of automobiles there is as diverse as the makes and models that were developed there. It all began in 1886 when the first gasoline-powered car was designed by Carl-Friedrich Benz. Germany was generating about 900 cars a year by 1901. Then, in 1926, the brand name Mercedes-Benz was launched from a merger that created the Daimler-Benz AG Company. BMW was founded in 1916, and they started production in 1928. Today, Germany is listed as one of four of the top auto manufacturing countries along with China, Japan, and the United States.
Today’s German Autos
Today approximately 6 million automobiles are manufactured in Germany, with an additional 5.5 million produced overseas. Five German companies and seven marques reign supreme in the country – Volkswagen AG, along with subsidiaries Porsche and Audi, BMW AG, Daimler AG, Ford-Werke GmbH and Adam Opel AG. The Volkswagen Group is one of the three largest automotive companies in the world, along with General Motors and Toyota. Today, some of the best-selling luxury brands in the United States are German, and they are Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, and Porsche. When it comes to performance and innovation, German luxury cars are unsurpassed.
