Mercedes-Benz Mobility AG is the financial and mobility services division of Mercedes-Benz Group AG. We offer our customers services for cars and vans in the areas of financing, leasing and insurance. In addition, in our capacity as the financing and mobility division we enable Mercedes-Benz customers to use vehicles flexibly by means of rental and subscription models, fleet management and digital services for charging and payment.
We are a driving force in our sector, and we are firmly focused on the major trends of our time: electrification, sustainability, digitalisation and artificial intelligence. We have a clear ambition:
Best-in-class mobility services — customer-centric, seamless and flexible.
We want to be the company of choice for our customers — not only for financing and leasing contracts but also for fleet management and flexible rental and subscription services as well as insurance and other vehicle-related services. Our Mercedes-Benz Mobility 2025 strategy focusses on our customers. We know their needs, and we want to gain an even better data-based understanding of them in the future. This will boost their loyalty to the Mercedes star, lead to the development of additional vehicle-related services, and contribute to the growth of the Mercedes-Benz Group. We want our offers to be seamlessly integrated into the Mercedes-Benz brand environment.
Financing, leasing & insurance
The focus of our product range is on financing, leasing and insurance solutions. As a financial services provider, Mercedes-Benz Mobility supports the sales of Mercedes-Benz Group AG’s automotive brands all over the world. In Germany, Mercedes-Benz Bank, which is part of Mercedes-Benz Mobility AG, is one of the leading automotive banks. It provides around one million customers with financial leeway as well as overnight deposit and fixed-interest accounts in the direct banking business.
Our services related to automotive financing and insurance are precisely tailored to our customers’ needs. We also apply this know-how to making their switch to electric mobility as easy as possible by providing attractive financing, leasing and insurance solutions. These solutions include financing and insuring the charging infrastructure, warranties and rental solutions for batteries, for example. Mercedes-Benz Mobility currently finances or leases half of all the new vehicles sold worldwide by the Mercedes-Benz Group — and our international portfolio is steadily growing.
Fleet & mobility management
Through our subsidiary Athlon we also offer innovative and best-in-class mobility solutions for business customers. More and more companies are now focusing on their core business and leaving the efficient management of their vehicle fleets to the specialists. Our subsidiary Athlon is a leading provider of vehicle leasing and fleet management systems in Europe, and it is responsible for more than 400.000 vehicles. Sustainability and flexibility are becoming increasingly important for the mobility of business customers as well. That’s why Athlon is offering numerous solutions for an easy entry into electric mobility and developing additional tools for sustainable fleet management — and that’s not all.
