In August 1888, Bertha Benz undertook a great journey. Before she could vote or before she could get a degree, Bertha became the first person to ever take a long-distance road trip. She was unstoppable, pushing her car forward whenever it broke down. By doing so, she helped push the automobile industry forward. Mercedes-Benz salutes everyone who is driving change in the world, just like Bertha Benz.
