Mercedes-Benz’ F800 Style vehicle is showing the future of automobiles from a new perspective, as the premium sedan combines efficient drive technologies unparalleled safety and convenience and an emotive design idiom, interprets current Mercedes-Benz in line with the brand’s attribute of refined performance.

The Style has a spacious interior of intelligent seating, operating, and concepts. Another unique of the large sedan is an all-new drive platform, which electric drives with cells (enabling ranges of 375 miles) as well as the use of Plug-in that can drive for up to 18 miles on electricity. Both variants of the Style therefore make emission-free mobility possible at the of a premium-class automobile, while at the time being fully for everyday driving and providing a driving experience.

We are dedicated to our responsibility for the environment with customer utility in a fascinating says Dr. Thomas Weber, the Board of Management member for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Development. The new F800 Style vehicle combines this to providing the leading innovative concepts with our traditional strengths in the areas of design, comfort, and outstanding performance.

A into the future of pioneering sedans

Within the 15.5-foot length of the F800 Style, all of the of the vehicle’s efficient and environmentally alternative drives (Plug-in or fuel cell drive are installed in a space-saving manner in the compartment and the gaps within the Each of the drive systems up comparatively little space for the This applies in particular to the drive with fuel which has been enhanced by to be compact and powerful. The front compact package was made through the consistent downsizing of all components. As a result, the entire space is preserved and offers of room for five occupants.

For decades now, our research have been turning concepts into reality and setting future trends. We set a on the large touring sedan in 2007, when we presented the says Prof. Herbert Head of E-Drive Future and Chief Environmental Officer at Characteristic features of the F800 are its innovations, whose development is close to the series production This is true not only of the drive with fuel but also of the Plug-in Hybrid, components were taken our modular system for electric and vehicles.

F800 Style Plug-in Hybrid: Outstanding despite emissions of only 68 CO2 per kilometer

In combination with the powerful Plug-in Hybrid system, the F800 Style is a dynamic expression of the concept of and responsibility. Its drive unit of a V6 gasoline engine with an of 300 hp with next-generation direct and a hybrid module with an 109 hp so that it delivers a total of around 409 hp. The lithium-ion battery a storage capacity of 10 kWh can be recharged at a charging station or a household socket. Thanks to its powerful and hybrid module, in the city the Style can run exclusively on electricity, without generating any local Because it also has high right from the moment it the vehicle has the same driving as a car with a V6 gasoline engine when operating in electric The F800 Style with the Hybrid can run purely on electricity for up to 18 The F800 Style research therefore marks a further step in the creation of a market-ready Hybrid. Mercedes-Benz will series production of the S500 Hybrid with the introduction of the S-Class.

Due to its efficient drive system and a CO2 for the battery-electric driving mode, the has a certified fuel consumption of 2.9 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers. corresponds to extremely low CO2 emissions of 68 grams per kilometer. However, to its outstanding efficiency, the F800 equipped with a Plug-in nevertheless has a driving performance to a sports car (0-60 mph 4.7 s, top speed of 155 When in electric mode, the Style has a top speed of 75 mph, meeting the needs associated long-distance driving.

Like the S400 HYBRID introduced in the of 2009 and the Vision S500 Hybrid, the powerful electric (approx. 80 kW) of the F800 Style is integrated into the housing of the transmission. The lithium-ion battery in the new vehicle is located underneath the seat, where it takes up space, creates a low center of and ensures maximum safety in the of a crash.

The electric drive in the F800 Style with the Hybrid once again the versatility of Mercedes-Benz’ extensively modular hybrid system. The system can be expanded in various depending on performance needs and the of application. On this basis, it is to combine hybrid modules and of different performance ratings fuel-efficient, high-torque gasoline and engines. Examples range the current mild hybrids all the way to Hybrids that enable electric driving over distances. In developing the F800 with Plug-in Hybrid, the engineers specifically focused on the pure electric driving in traffic. Thanks to high reserves, the F800 Style in easily masters all kinds of traffic while producing no emissions. With the new hybrid the top speed of the F800 Style Plug-in Hybrid has been to 75 mph in electric mode compared to the S500 Plug-in Hybrid. At the time, it emits only 68 of CO2 per kilometer, compared to the latter 74 grams per kilometer.

Flexible, and fully suited to everyday

The F800 Style with drive and fuel cell

The F800 Style also clean driving pleasure in the equipped with an electric based on fuel cell The vehicle’s electric motor around 136 hp as well as a strong of approximately 214 lb-ft. The fuel generates the traction current by reacting hydrogen with onboard the vehicle, producing vapor in the process as the only

The components of the fuel cell are taken from the range of e-drive modules, which developed for a variety of different vehicles. These components, are already installed in the limited B-Class F-CELL, can be used and are suited for a variety of different configurations. The F800 Style is an of this, as it uses rear-wheel in contrast to the B-Class F-CELL. The components are also installed in vehicles, with developments being spearheaded by the new Citaro cell bus, which is with two of the F-CELL systems in passenger cars.

The new Mercedes-Benz vehicle has the fuel cell in the front, while the compact motor is installed near the axle. The lithium-ion battery is behind the rear seats and is as well as possible against the of accidents, as are the four hydrogen Two of the tanks are located in the transmission between the passengers, while the two are underneath the rear seat.

Style with further for more comfort and safety

In to a multi-drive platform that is for large sedans and the combination of alternative drive technologies, the Style features many technological innovations, such as a new display concept and a human-machine (HMI) with a cam touchpad. The shows many additional not typically found in conventional clusters. The F800 Style’s concept focuses for the first primarily on electric driving

HMI with cam (camera) touchpad for and precise operation

The new cam touchpad HMI is an expansion of the COMAND system. For years now, Mercedes-Benz has forging ahead with the of innovative operating and display A particularly user-friendly innovation is presented in the F800 Style. The HMI here consists of a touchpad on the console and a camera that video images of the user’s as it works the pad. The live of the hand is presented in transparent in the central display above the The user sees the contours of his or her glide across the image covering anything, thus that all of the functions of the currently menu remain visible so they can be easily operated by slight pressure to the touchpad. the display with one’s generates a feeling similar to of touching laptop keys so users know when are carrying out specific actions.

The cam HMI unit recognizes finger on the pad surface such as wiping, turning, and zooming, thus intuitive regulation of the climate system, telephone, stereo and systems, and Internet access. The enhances active safety as because it is extremely easy and to use and therefore does not distract the as much from the actual of driving. And unlike conventional the HMI cam touchpad does not get smudged fingerprints.

Conventional touchpad generally depict hand or positions only by a small in the display. Their lack of makes it very risky to information while driving, doing so diverts the motorist’s too much from the road. By the HMI with cam touchpad can be easily and operated even while Test subjects have that the HMI with cam touchpad is easy and safe to use, as a result of the transparent depiction of the

Range on Map: Graphic depiction during electric

Another very user-friendly created by the Mercedes engineers is the on Map function, which shows the possible travel radius electric vehicle operation as a 360 on a map. Should municipalities permit purely electric traffic in the future, the driver can whether the electric range of his or her is sufficient for the journey into and out of the area by means of the Range on Map The system provides this by combining information on the current charge level with from the navigation system.

In the new and display concept, Mercedes-Benz has a solution that provides an amount of information in a system of clarity. The engineers have achieved the goal of successfully a comprehensive yet easy-to-operate information and system for future automobiles with electric or partially drive systems. A further-developed of the system can also display stations.

Mirror display is on the eyes

The mirror display of the cam touchpad HMI eliminates the differences close proximity visibility and over longer distances, contributing to the driver’s physiological in a manner typical of Mercedes. The displays driving and vehicle via a mirror in the instrument cluster so they appear to be farther The distance the eye looks into is extended, which means switching between near and far — and therefore less — for the eyes.

New DISTRONIC Traffic Jam Assistant further the stress of driving

Back in Mercedes-Benz introduced DISTRONIC the world’s first proximity and control system that even when the car is standing The system substantially reduces the for drivers in dense traffic, as it the distance from the vehicle in even at very low speeds all the way to a standstill. With its new DISTRONIC Traffic Jam Assistant feature in the Style, Mercedes-Benz has also the world’s first automaker to a system that is also of automatically following the vehicle in of it into curves. The system the difference between driving curving roads and turning, means it does not blindly the vehicle up in front — for when it changes lanes in to exit the highway.

The result is at speeds of up to about 25 mph, the Jam Assistant function takes of both longitudinal and transverse so that drivers do not have to themselves. The driver can just sit and relax — with on the steering wheel. When the 25 mph is exceeded, the steering torque keeps the vehicle in its lane is reduced to a point at which the Jam Assistant smoothly disengages. can, of course, override the at any time. Sensitive sensors active steering movements, automatically deactivating the system’s control function.

The DISTRONIC PLUS Traffic Jam is the logical continuation of the Mercedes-Benz and safety philosophy. With it, we are another milestone on the path creating innovative systems, which we will further the high driving comfort is a hallmark of Mercedes, says Bharat Balasubramanian, Head of Innovations Process Technologies at Research and Advanced Engineering. The data is generated by radar sensors that are supplemented by a camera.

PRE-SAFE 360 improves in rear-end collisions

While the Jam Assistant heightens comfort and safety, the innovative protective known as PRE-SAFE 360 further passive safety. PRE-SAFE 360 is on the proactive occupant protection PRE SAFE® developed by Mercedes-Benz. the previous system, PRE-SAFE 360 monitors the area behind the As a result, the system engages the around 600 milliseconds before an rear-end collision occurs. The key of this system is that a stationary vehicle helps secondary accidents such as that occur when the car is uncontrolled into an intersection or a crossing. It goes without that PRE-SAFE 360 also the driver to take control at any For example, the brake is immediately if the driver hits the gas pedal, they recognize that is sufficient space in front of vehicle to avoid the rear

Rear pivot-and-slide doors maximum entry comfort

A customer-friendly innovation of the F800 is its rear doors. Whereas the doors are attached to the A-pillar in a manner and open wide the front, the rear doors backward when opened, as are suspended from an interior arm. Because the doors back close to the vehicle occupants find it much to get into and out of the automobile in tight spaces.

The F800 Style has no B-pillar, making the entire between the A and C-pillars completely when the doors are opened. the lack of a B-pillar, the F800 boasts a bodyshell that is extremely robust and lightweight, and meets the stringent demands for safety that are a hallmark of the brand.

Reinterpretation of the typical design idiom

The F800 is both a technology platform and a This research vehicle was through close cooperation technical research and advanced departments and the advanced design in Sindelfingen, Germany and Como, Its exterior appearance is marked by a wheelbase, short body and a sensually flowing roof

The exciting coupe-like roof and in general the vehicle’s balanced lend it a stylish sporty that reinterprets the Mercedes-Benz idiom and emphasizes the sculptural of the F800 Style, says Head of Design Prof. Wagener. The result is a harmonious of innovative form and function, conveys a sense of great and authority.

Front end with LED headlights

The vehicle’s front end features a of the radiator grille with the placed star that is of Mercedes sports cars. The radiator grille bars flow around the tube the Mercedes-Benz brand star. with the wide radiator and the generously curved air intake the model’s unique bright LED emphasize the dynamic nature of the vehicle. The headlights are divided individual segments for daytime lights, turn signal and primary headlights. The F800 taillights are also equipped state-of-the-art LED units that an exciting interplay of indirect and direct beams. The result is an unmistakable, and memorable visual

Wood and light create a interior

Luxurious wood and lots of light ensure a level of comfort in the interior of the Style. Occupants will notice the modern sense of and functional elements like the area and the door armrests to float in space like The innovative lightweight-construction seats in the Style consist of a magnesium and a carbon fiber laminate backed with a fine yet netting. The seat shell features genuine wood For the veneer process, Mercedes-Benz used a 3D surface coating designed especially for the veneering of surfaces. This same was used to create the wood in the center console, on the doors, and in the area. These wood pieces are molded as 3D laminated and are augmented by an aluminum core, ensures that the components the high crash safety that are a hallmark of Mercedes.

transfer from research to production

Mercedes-Benz has presented 13 vehicles since the early The range of innovative and pioneering that was unveiled — with Auto 2000 in and leading up to today’s F800 — offers proof of the and foresight with which engineers address the core of research and technology in order to innovative solutions for the future. systems that were used in research vehicles and as revolutionary at the time are now found in production cars, including the proximity-controlled cruise control, was first installed in the F 100 in 1991 and its series production debut in the in 1998.

The F800 Style is this approach. Like its the model features important comfort, and safety system as well as an avant-garde design, all of point the way forward for future production Mercedes-Benz vehicles will continue to impressively fascination and responsibility.
