Mercedes-Benz is a division of the German manufacturer Daimler AG, and the brand is used for automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. The name first appeared in 1926 under Daimler-Benz but traces its origins to Daimler's 1901 Mercedes and to Karl Benz's 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, widely regarded as the first automobile.
When the new CLS-Class launched in March 2011, it marked a new era of beautiful design for Mercedes-Benz cars. The new C-Class Coupé, SLK and SLS AMG Roadster, also launched earlier this year, spearhead a new generation of innovation. These popular Mercedes models are all available from OVL at direct rates for personal and business car leasing and contract hire.
