Mercedes-Benz is a renowned pioneer in the automobile industry. Though one of the technologies that seem to have been left behind in their stable is the advent of the heads-up display, or HUD. Numerous other manufactures have been featuring the technology for quite some time. And ultimately, General Motors was the first to introduce it in 1988.

Originally, Mercedes-Benz thought the technology was a nuisance and a potential driver distraction. Though in a new decision, Mercedes-Benz has ruled the opposite and will be made optional on the new S-Class and C-Class sedans.

The HUD will display speed, navigation data, and vital warning lights on the windshield, including the possibility of night vision and other forward detection and sensory capabilities.

Other models will eventually get the HUD option as well, though specifics weren’t shared.
