Number 1 lives on.

Automobile manufacturers Benz and Daimler merged in 1926 to form Daimler-Benz AG. Their first joint commercial vehicle model was the N 1, used as a basis for both trucks and buses.

Rare early documents.

Only a few examples of the Mercedes-Benz N 1 bus have survived. One of them belongs to the collection of the Automuseum Dr Carl Benz in Ladenburg. For the latest issue of Mercedes-Benz Classic, the 1927-built bus recently visited the EvoBus plant in Mannheim. The gallery shows historical photos from the Mercedes-Benz Classic Archives.
