125 Years of the Automobile

The 125th anniversary of the automobile in 2011 was marked with a new display in Legend room 6 of the Mercedes-Benz Museum under the heading "New start - The Road to Emission-free Mobility". A range of different drive systems – from the optimised combustion engine through to electric and hybrid systems and fuel-cells – are used to illustrate the challenges faced in the present day as well as in the future. Here visitors can find the answers to their questions about the drive technologies of tomorrow. The fuel cell in particular offers one of the most innovative forms of mobility.
