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:

  • 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 rescue measures. Doors can be unlocked automatically.
