The 2019 Mercedes B-Class Might not be Pretty, but it has Some Awesome Technology and Drivetrain Options

You may not want to be seen in one, but gadgets will keep you entertained along the way

Mercedes has unveiled an all-new B-Class practical family car, and no, this new model isn’t very pretty either, continuing in its predecessors’ tracks, but there are plenty of other reasons you may want to buy one. I’m pretty sure it was never really bought based on styling, so that takes a back seat to the features it does offer its occupants.

- 1886 125 Years of Mercedes

As Mercedes-Benz celebrates its 125th anniversary, the automotive world as a whole should take the time to step back and look at its roots. With the technological wonders that roll out of a Mercedes factory day to day it would be hard for any of us to fully understand a time when a short trip into town would be a true journey. A horse and buggy, as well as the Railroad reigned supreme before the turn of the century and Karl Benz was about to change everything. The brilliance of an aspiring inventor and the realization of a dream led to the creation of the first automobile.

The mating of the internal combustion engine to a chassis built from the ground up was the basic formula for creating an automobile. New creations beyond the engine itself and obstacles that were not able to be overcome in the initial product - both came together to become the Benz Patent-Motorwagen.

Mercedes corporate has been celebrating in style, “Exactly 125 years to the day after Carl Benz registered his “vehicle with gas-engine drive” in 1886, Daimler AG has celebrated the anniversary of the automobile. Approximately 1,400 invited guests were hosted by the inventor of the automobile at the Mercedes-Benz World in Stuttgart, with guests of honor including the German Federal Chancellor, Dr. Angela Merkel.”

Hit the jump for more details on the 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen.

Mercedes Museum to open two major exhibits for the holidays

Mercedes Museum to open two major exhibits for the holidays

The Mercedes-Benz Musuem in Stuttgart, Germany will host two special exhibitions over the next few months that’s sure to captivate the imaginations of Mercedes-lovers and car freaks everywhere.

The first of these two exhibits will run from November 2009 to March 2010 and is being called “A Journey of Innovations”. This exhibit will highlight the evolution of the Mercedes brand from its humble beginnings more than 100 years ago to its current status as one of the premier carmakers in the world. Among the cars that are scheduled to be displayed includes a Benz Patent Motor Car of 1886, a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL from 1955, a 2009 E 250 CDI, and one of the brand’s latest creations, the S 400 HYBRID.

The museum’s other new exhibit – which will run from December 2009 to January 2010 – is all about the future of the Silver Arrows. Titled as ‘Concept BlueZERO’, the exhibit will highlight three unique vehicles that Mercedes hopes to launch sometime in the future. Taking advantage of its new BlueZERO technology, the brand will display a BlueZERO E-CELL PLUS with an electric motor and an auxiliary internal combustion engine, a BlueZERO E-CELL that comes with an exclusive battery electric drive, and a BlueZERO F-CELL, which is equipped with a fuel cell technology. All three cars are being displayed to show the remarkable gains Mercedes has achieved in their efforts in developing vehicles that come with alternative drive systems.

Both exhibits are bilingual – a choice between English or German – so you won’t have any problems keeping up with the guides. The Mercedes Musem is open from every day except Mondays, from 9 am to 6 pm. If you happen to be in Stuttgart at the time when these exhibits are open, it might be worth your time to give it a look-see.

Press release after the jump.

The Mercedes-Benz Museum

The Mercedes-Benz Museum

Is in Stuttgart, Germany.
It was completed last year.
It is a museum focused on only one brand, but it is also something more.
It is an architectural wonder,
And a good sign of just how much money Daimler-Benz is making. Car companies don’t indulge themselves in preserving their past unless they’ve got a few bucks. But to do it at this level is simply extraordinary.
The building is to architecture what the Silver Arrows were to race cars in the 1930s.
And a kind soul has posted the (...)
