Unimog history.

75 years of the Unimog. Power for a purpose.

Developed as a universally-applicable motorised device, built as a reliable workhorse, further-developed into an advanced implement carrier. When the first Unimog was developed in 1946, nobody at the time could possibly have imagined just how much of a success the legendary all-rounder would be, nor that it would endure up to the present day.

At the beginning, inventive spirit and a brilliant idea led to the creation of the unmistakeable vehicle we know today as the Unimog: rugged underpinnings with a versatile range of applications, all packaged in a single vehicle which is as suitable for daily operations as anyone could ever wish for. Be it in agriculture, municipal works, forestry, firefighting or even on rails, there is no other vehicle in the world that offers such a broad scope of operational capacities.
