The Safety Of A Mercedes-Benz Van
It has been Mercedes-Benz’s mission to create a safe and reliable commercial van
for business owners from all around. Mercedes-Benz is increasing the safety of
its star-branded vans even further with the aid of in-house accident research.
The Van Accident Research unit was reorganized in the summer of 2015. The unit now
has its headquarters at Daimler AG’s Untertürkheim plant. There, the
engineers examine selected accidents in which Mercedes-Benz vans have been
involved. The results are fed directly back into vehicle development, thus
helping to make Mercedes-Benz vans even safer.
Research focusing on vans has been around as early as the 1970s. However, the different
areas were previously assigned to other divisions. Now we have everything under
experience first-hand just how important the work we do here is. Often we talk
to people who, thanks to the safety technology, have emerged from serious
accidents in good shape, and based on their experience immediately order their
next van from Mercedes-Benz,” explains Vera Hertler, a development
engineer involved in setting up the Van Accident Research unit.
As technology continues to expand and advance, so will Mercedes-Benz Vans.
