Safety - at the root of all we do.

The Integral Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into four phases:

Phase 1: safe driving

Phase 2: in critical situations

Phase 3: in an accident

Phase 4: after an accident

To reduce consequential damage after an accident and support the work of the rescue services, a number of different actions are initiated, depending on the type and severity of the accident:

  • Optimum protection. Engine can be switched off automatically and the fuel supply cut off.
  • Conspicuous lighting. Hazard warning lamps and emergency interior lighting can be activated automatically to prevent follow-on accidents and make it easier to find the accident vehicle.
  • Excellent escape potential. Doors can be unlocked automatically.
  • Improved rescue measures. Integrated crash joints between the wing and door can speed up rescue work by allowing the doors to be opened more easily after a frontal collision.
