Valuable Lessons We Can Learn From Mercedes-Benz GLGLC-Class

Great devotee of the German cars, Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, yet in particular, Mercedes-Benz,  Since childhood I believed that Henry Ford invented the engine car, and afterward I learned that Karl Benz actually did, route back in 1886 when Henry Ford was still playing with Lego. Not to get down on Henry, he considered the production line which sped up production, everything being equal.

Mercedes GLC

We cannot remember when I started worshiping and respecting Mercedes-Benz above all others, however I can tell you why

They have tried a couple of principles and taken some decisions that I really respect and that I figure we can learn from.

  1. They are pioneers

Mercedes-Benz has pioneered more automotive technology than some other car maker. Often times on the car forums, people will bash Merc and insist they’re copying others in design or in technology. I always respond that even if that was true, they have every option to do as such – they invented the car, so all car makers, simply by the act of producing cars, are copying them.

That is just some cheerful messing around, however the fact is, Mercedes have been pioneers. They developed the engine start system so you do not have to start the engine with a wrench, developed the first supercharged car, pioneered crumple zones, created ABS for cars, were the first to introduce airbags in Europe, developed the collapsible steering column and Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which was later introduced in other cars by numerous other names like DSC, and this is just a very short list.

Pioneering has its price, however its justified, despite any trouble. Mercedes spends more than some other manufacturer on research and development (these days it is around R90 million per day! In 2006 they spent R140 million every day on research and development), so they leave with less benefit, however in the minds of most of the total populace, they have a name of prestige, respect and deference straight up there with Bentley and Rolls Royce.

When people need to refer to a benchmark, you’ll just hear one of two things: They are the Rolls Royce of their field, or they are the Mercedes Benz of their field.

As a testament to Mercedes GLC pioneering spirit, see how much technology present in Bentley and Rolls Royce was conceived and developed by Mercedes-Benz. You’ll note that this distinction does not make a difference the other route around. Another testament is that about 9 out of 10 royals and statesmen (presidents, diplomats, rulers, ministers, kings, queens, chancellors) drive or are driven in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class or Maybach.
