Unimog

  • Stuttgart, Sep 29, 2009 - The Unimog, the most versatile product in the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle range, amply demonstrates the creative prescience of the automobile engineers at Daimler AG. The very first design draft for the Unimog dating from September 1945 already features installation spaces for mowing equipment, a plough, a load platform and a fitting for trailer operation. Today Unimog vehicle technology has reached a level unrivalled anywhere in the world, with three model series for municipal and construction operations, the energy industry, fire protection and the emergency services, combined road/rail applications, agricultural maintenance work and the transport sector, and/or as a carrier for an extraordinary variety of working implements.

  • Wörth am Rhein / Lausanne , Dec 17, 2007 - When the “m2”, the new line run by Métro Lausanne-Ouchy S.A., comes on stream in summer 2008 as Switzerland’s first metro line, there will be another two entries ripe for the Guinness Book of Records. No other metro anywhere in the world has to cope with an altitude difference of 338 m and gradients of up to 12% along a 5.9-kilometre stretch. And what’s more, the new “m2” as successor to the old “Ficelle”, which ran from Ouchy on Lake Geneva to Lausanne-Flon, was built in a record-breaking time of just under four years.
