Mercedes-Benz Unimog Celebrates 60 Years

The Mercedes-Benz Unimog is 60 years old. Originally designed for agricultural use, the Unimog is remarkable for its ability to function in the most challenging and adverse conditions.

Often used as snowploughs, municipal equipment carriers, in construction, defence forces, and agricultural situations, the Unimog is at home in conditions as diverse as jungles, mountains and deserts, on expeditions to remote places and as back-up vehicles in challenging events such as the Paris-Dakar Rally.

In June, its birthday will be celebrated at a special ceremony planned to take place at the Mercedes-Benz factory in Wörth where the world’s largest gathering of classic and current Unimog vehicles will be assembled for the occasion.
