The job of a designer is characterised by a love of innovation and detail. Years go by between the first ideas and the model acceptance, years in which the designers work to together to incrementally create the definitive vehicle. In a team process, the next generation of a Mercedes-Benz arises from initially competing draughts.
The design process is an inherent part of the development process (Mercedes-Benz Development System). The designers work closely together with the research, engineering and production departments, coordinate vehicle dimensions, material concepts and manufacturing processes, and in so doing also ensure producibility.
