American Mercedes
The Daimler Mfg. Co.
Long Island City, NY
1904-1907

The American Mercedes was an exact duplicate of the Mercedes created in 1900 and built in Germany.

The Mercedes Brand was able to establish itself in the American Automobile market. However, high shipping cost and customs duties of almost 45 percent were an obstacle for sales in the United States.

In 1904 Mercedes formed the The Daimler Mfg. Co. in Long Island City, NY for local production that would give the Mercedes a more competitive edge in the U.S. The first American Mercedes rolled of the assembly lines later that year, appeared in the American Automobile market place and at National Automobile shows in New York.
