Safety - at the heart of all our thinking

The integral safety concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into three phases:

Phase 1: safe driving

Phase 2: In an accident

Phase 3: 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:

  • Best possible protection: the engine can be switched off automatically and the fuel supply can be cut off.
  • Conspicuous lighting: the hazard warning lamps can be activated automatically in order to prevent subsequent accidents and make it easier to find the accident vehicle.
  • Good rescue possibilities: the doors can be automatically unlocked.
