Geneva/Stuttgart – The Mercedes-Benz "Concept X-CLASS" study, on display at the Geneva Motor Show from 9 to 19 March, provides an outlook on the brand's forthcoming new pickup, the X-Class. The study, first unveiled in Sweden last year, illustrates that the X-Class will combine the hallmark strengths of a pickup – tough, functional, strong, and with off-road capability – with the classic characteristics of a star-branded vehicle – design, comfort, driving dynamics, and safety. This will make Mercedes-Benz the first premium manufacturer to account for the changing customer requirements in the global segment of mid-size pickups, and it will make the tough one-ton pickup with seating for up to five people the first such vehicle to represent an attractive proposition as an urban lifestyle and family vehicle.

  • What Do Benin, Botswana, Guyana, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, St. Kitts and Nevis and Suriname Have In Common?
  • Over the years, the Mercedes-Benz Museum has welcomed visitors from all over the world. All over? Not quite. No one from Benin, Botswana, Guyana, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, St. Kitts and Nevis or Suriname has ever been there. The Museum has now launched a campaign to find visitors from these countries.


Stuttgart. "The Mercedes-Benz brand is known all over the world, and that is reflected in the nationalities of those who visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum: we welcome people from so many countries every day. We've had visitors from the Bahamas, the Solomon Islands and from Andorra. But there are seven countries missing from our list. So we started wondering what we could do to redress that fact", says the Head of the Mercedes-Benz Museum, Monja Büdke.
