Hybrid Vehicles

  • Stuttgart, Feb 24, 2005 - First motor vehicle propulsion systems with hybrid solutions existed in the history of Daimler AG as long as some 100 years ago. After early attempts at alternative drive systems by Wilhelm Maybach, in 1907 the Austrian affiliate of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft introduced the Mercedes Mixte with electric motor and internal combustion engine, developed by Ferdinand Porsche.
