Daimler AG or Daimler-Benz AG?

Which would you prefer to be the name to be? They're still hoping for Daimler AG pending shareholder approval.

We're talking about the name for the whole company and it's brands & products as well. Mercedes-Benz is a brand of the company, so it does not work.

There are plenty of company names which cover only one of the brands - Ford comes to mind. The Chrysler part of the demerger is going to be called the Chrysler Corporation (so I believe). If it works for them with their various brands, why not for Mercedes? Another Vote for Mercedes-Benz AG.

Daimler-Benz Ag is much better than Daimler which was a British make of car. Mercedes-Benz appeals to me too.

How do we get the results of this poll to MB?? In time to affect decision???
