Meet the Mercedes Pickup Truck

For more than 130 years, Mercedes-Benz and its founders have been a spark of innovation for personal transportation on wheels. From its first car in 1886, its battery-electric vehicle in 1906, and its supercharged engine in 1921, Mercedes has a history of venturing beyond what's already on the map. 

So when Mercedes says it's going to start building pickup trucks, eyebrows raise. Here, it seems Mercedes has arrived late to the party. Last year alone, more than 350,000 small and midsize trucks were sold in the U.S., a 41-percent jump from the year before. But before you dismiss Mercedes' new concept model as an afterthought, you'll want to take a closer look. With the X-Class concept – introduced yesterday in Stockholm – Mercedes may have created something we didn't even know was missing.
