    In 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D is the first production diesel passenger car worldwide. It convinces with favourable features still typical for a diesel, even today: it is robust, reliable and long-lasting and in addition, it impresses with extraordinary fuel efficiency. It not only consumes just four litres of fuel per 100 kilometres less than its petrol equivalent; diesel fuel costs only about half as much in 1936. This is the reason why the 45 hp/33 kW diesel engine is very popular with taxi drivers. The 260 D is available in numerous body versions, also as a landaulet.
