Mercedes-Benz 260 D (1936-1940) was the first diesel engined passenger car

The Mercedes-Benz 260 D in the W 138 series was the world’s first series-production diesel passenger car. Its 2.6-litre OM 138 four-cylinder engine with the Mercedes-Benz pre-chamber system and a Bosch injection pump developed 33 kW (45 hp) at 3200 rpm, and was installed in the chassis of the petrol-powered Mercedes-Benz 200 with a long wheelbase.
