Nico Rosberg’s Never Give Up Attitude Impresses Dr. Dieter Zetsche

Nico Rosberg may not have been able to put up a great fight in Abu Dhabi in the 2014 season-ender race due to mechanical issues, but he surely gained the admiration of a lot of people in the way he handled the last fight, particularly Dr. Dieter Zetsche. According to Germany’s Sport Bild, the Daimler boss praised the success of the Mercedes Formula One team in an internal Christmas letter to employees. He commended the amazing performance of Mercedes-AMG Petronas, which led to its series of back-to-back wins and Constructors’ Championship. He expressed his pleasure as well with the triumph of the 2014 World Champion, Lewis Hamilton. However, Dr. Zetsche was specifically impressed with the attitude displayed… Continue Reading »


A Clearer Photo of a Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Caught on Cam

The Mercedes-Benz GLE coupe is baring more skin as days go by, which means its launching might be sooner than expected. However, several sources claimed that the mid-size sport utility vehicle will not be launched until the latter part of 2015, so we will just have to wait for further details from Mercedes and see about that. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLE coupe’s almost undisguised spy photos that we posted earlier, the one above has nearly stripped down its camouflage in the front bumper. This one is not much different than the latest photos we had, but it gives us a better look of what the three-pointed star brand has in store for… Continue Reading »

Daimler Promises to Keep the Steering Wheel in Autonomous Cars

With the coming wave of autonomous cars and even trucks, several questions were raised by critics and auto enthusiasts. Among them is, “what happens to the steering wheel?” According to Bloomberg, Daimler CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche promised that they will still retain the features that have defined automobiles since its invention like the steering wheel, and the basic pedals. The introduction of autonomous cars is currently perceived by many as an event that might put a lot of traditional car components inconsequential. That is the reason why Google killed off all the manual features in its prototype driverless car. However, Dr. Zetsche stated in his speech at Oxford yesterday, “We specifically do not want to… Continue Reading »
