75 Years Ago: Delivery of the First Series-Produced Unimog


Exactly 75 years ago, the very first Unimog was handed over to a customer near Stuttgart. The vehicle left the plant gates at mechanical engineering company Gebrüder Boehringer in Göppingen, in the south west of Germany. This was the start of the 75-year international success story of the Universal Motor Gerät, as it is known in German: the Unimog.

The first series-production Unimog from the 70200 model series with vehicle identification number 003 went to a customer in Hößlinswart. The Unimogs with vehicle identification numbers 001 and 002 were built as test vehicles for internal purposes only and were not sold. For the first time, the vehicle combined the advantages of tractors, implement carriers, and trucks, differing significantly from all conventional tractors available on the market at the time, not only visually, but also in terms of its versatility.
