Mercedes-Benz Unimog 400 With Schmidt Snow Blower in Sierra-Nevada ski resort, Andalusia, Spain.

The Unimog is a range of multi-purpose tractors, trucks and lorries that has been produced by Boehringer from 1948 until 1951, and by Daimler Truck (formerly Daimler-Benz, DaimlerChrysler and Daimler AG) since 1951.

Unimog production started in 1948 at Boehringer in Göppingen. Daimler-Benz took over manufacture of the Unimog in 1951, and first produced it in their Gaggenau plant. From 1951, the Unimog was sold under the Mercedes-Benz brand. However, the first Unimog to feature the three-pointed Mercedes-Benz star was only introduced in 1953. Since 2002, the Unimog has been built in the Mercedes-Benz truck plant in Wörth am Rhein in Germany.

The Mercedes-Benz Türk A.Ş. plant assembles Unimogs in Aksaray, Turkey.

Unimogs were also built in Argentina (first ever country to do so outside Germany) by Mercedes-Benz Argentina S.A. under licence from 1968 until 1983 (with some extra units built until 1991 off the assembly line from parts in stock) in the González Catán factory near the city of Buenos Aires, as stated in the book “El Unimog en el Ejército Argentino”, by argentine author and historian Gaston Javier Garcia Loperena in 2015.
