Convincing in innovation and design.
“Automotive News Europe” has presented its “Eurostar 2015” awards to Prof. Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG Group Research & Mercedes-Benz Cars Development, and Gorden Wagener, Head of Design Daimler AG. With these awards, the online magazine is honouring the role played by the two managers in Mercedes-Benz’s current strategic product initiative. “Mercedes is leading the German premium pack on autonomous driving. Under Weber, Mercedes also has announced an ambitious rollout of ten new plug-in hybrid versions of its popular models by 2017,” writes the publication. It goes on to say: “Wagener and his design team have delivered an impressive series of head-turning, hot-selling vehicles from the sleek all-new CLA and GLA to the stylish, latest-generation S-Class, which during its first full year of availability accounted for more than 100,000 sales, a record total for an upper-premium flagship.”
