German Automotive History

Germany is considered by many in the automotive industry to be the rightful birthplace of automobiles. In fact, the very history of automobiles in Germany is as diversified as the current selection of German vehicle makes & models. In 1886, Carl-Friedrich Benz developed the first automobile that was powered by gasoline. At the turn of the 20th century, Germany was manufacturing 900 cars a year. The Mercedes-Benz brand was created when two companies merged in 1926, creating the Daimler-Benz AG organization. Founded in 1916, BMW began producing vehicles in 1928. Today, Germany is one of the top four countries to manufacture vehicles, alongside China, Japan, and the United States of America.

German Automotive Today

Currently, German automotive manufacturers produce over 6 million cars, trucks, and SUVs. Additionally, over 5 million are manufactured overseas. The vehicle manufacturers that dominate production in Germany include Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford-Werke, and Adam Opel. In addition to General Motors and Toyota, Volkswagen is among the top three biggest global automotive companies. In the United States, German branded vehicles included in the best-selling luxury brands are Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Audi, and BMW. It often goes without saying that German luxury vehicles are unequaled when considering innovation and performance.

Expensive Repairs

Repairing and servicing luxury German vehicles can be expensive. Examples of repair costs would include an estimated 5-year cost of nearly $1,700 for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and A8 from Audi. Owners of the CL-Class model from Mercedes can expect to pay just under $1,600 every 5 years.
