Mercedes Mei Sai De Si

Mercedes is transliterated as 梅塞德斯 (mei sai de si).

梅 (mei) is a plum or a plum blossom.
塞 (sai) is a fort, a stronghold, or a strategic point along a frontier.
德 (de) is virtue.
斯 (si) is this, these, here, or such.

This name is a close transliteration of “Mercedes”, but misses the mark in terms of capturing the image of luxury and class this company has worked so hard to create. The transliteration, 賓士 (bin shi), more accurately hints at the desired VIP status.
