From http://mercedesgwagen.galeon.com/ "In issue 14 of G-Wizz, our editor seemed quite concerned about the possibility of the G-Wagen not being a true Mercedes but a re-badged Puch. Despite the fact that Steyr-Puch has a long history as builder of very capable off-roaders like the Haflinger and Pinzgauer, which in fact did not heir the beauty of the Austrian horse breeds after which they were named, the truth is that the G-Wagen is a TRUE Mercedes, since this company was very much responsible for its conception, although this was done in co-operation with Steyr-Daimler-Puch. The following intends to be a longer-than-expected history of the G-Wagen."
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes_G "Developed in co-operation with the Austrian car manufacturer Steyr-Daimler-Puch,[1] production of the G-Class began in 1979 with the 460 Series models.[2] The G-Class has been sold under the Puch name in certain markets"

And now the problem is Mercedes G-Klasse Puch; Puch-Mercedes G-Klasse, Puch G-Klasse, etc... :??:

Correctly it's a Puch G. The car was developed by Steyr-Puch and still in production over there. Mercedes made just badge-engineering and sold it under their name (Peugeot, too, not to forget). Sure, during the years there were used more and more Mercedes-parts, but it was never a pure Mercedes Benz.

So origin Austria is correct, for Puch AND Mercedes G. IMHO for the Peugeot-version, too.

btw.: this car and the Lada Niva are actual world-champions: they are the car-models, which are for the longest time in production without substancial facelifts.

Yes, in Austria it was always sold under the name Puch. Im some other countries, too. I think, mostly at the Austrian neighbours.

Except the Morgan, I guess...

P.S. In Germany it's called "ELW" = Einsatzleitwagen

Danke, Ingo. Man würde fast sagen, es fehlt den Österreichern an historisches Bewußtsein... Oder sind wir Holländer da überempfindlich?

Nun, wir Deutschen sehen das auch anders, aber wir verkrachen uns schon mit den Ösi's, wenn nur die Frage auftaucht, ob Österreich auf der Täter- oder der Opferseite gesehen werden sollte. :/

Indeed, I'll update the flag for these.
