Since today, February 1, 2022, Daimler AG becomes Mercedes-Benz Group AG. The renaming follows the spin-off and stock exchange listing of Daimler Truck, the latter now focused only on heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

The Group still holds a minority stake of 35% in Daimler Truck Holding, of this, around 5% are held in its pension assets.
