The Women behind the Mercedes-Benz wheel.

“Bertha Benz: The First Driver” was created to celebrate the 130th anniversary of Mercedes-Benz. The video honors Bertha’s momentous drive and how it kick-started the introduction of Mercedes-Benz.

Karl Benz built his first car in 1888 but didn’t think it was ready for the road. His wife Bertha disagreed and without Karl knowing she took it for a ride. No one could believe there was even a car on the road let alone a woman behind the wheel.

Like many road trips, not everything went as planned. But, nothing stopped Bertha.

Bertha’s 60-mile impromptu drive across Germany was groundbreaking and showcased the first Karl Benz automobile. Development, shape, and design of later Benz models were influenced by Bertha’s feedback.
