Mercedes envisions the zero-emissions sedan of 2025

The F 125! vehicle is a glimpse of 2025 from Mercedes-Benz

To celebrate 125 of the automobile, Mercedes-Benz has provided a of where it sees things in the future with its F 125! vehicle. Although it isn’t so as to attempt to predict what will look like in 125 years, the German automaker has to look a little further than usual. Previous vehicles have generally ahead one vehicle generation, is roughly seven to eight but with a newly developed fuel cell system, controls, and range of 1,000 km miles), Mercedes says the F looks forward more two generations to the year 2025 and


The F 125! (Elaine Seinfeld was obviously part of the committee) is an emission-free, four-seater saloon with a bodyshell retains the drooping line of recent Mercedes saloons, looking like it was designed by a fiction artist from the The company says the bodyshell is from a mix of fiber-reinforced plastics, aluminum and high-strength steel which result in a weight of 250 kg (551 lb) — or around 40 that of a comparable current — while improving

Crash-responsive protective systems the doors do away with the for B-pillars, which also access to the vehicle’s four via the wide gull-wing doors. The doors and large interior are enabled by an extremely long (3,333 mm/131 in), is itself enabled by reducing the and rear overhangs to a minimum. The opening mechanism, which electro hydraulic actuators by gas-pressure struts, is invisibly into the rear triangular panel on each side and the mirrors and door handles been ditched to lower the drag coefficient.

Drag is reduced by the uninterrupted, single-piece with integral front while an electrically extending luggage module provides access to the boot.

Since the F fuel cell drive requires considerably less and cooling air than conventional vehicles, the front grille has set into the front architecture of the It is flanked by LED headlamps, which says consume 100 watts than conventional headlamps on

Powering the F 125!

Instead of gasoline and lithium ion the hybrid F 125! is powered by a mix of batteries and a new version of Mercedes’ system that was used to the globe in 125 days earlier year. With a view to vehicles that could operating ranges comparable to diesel models with no in interior space, the F 125! a hydrogen tank that has fully integrated into the The tank is integrated into the assembly and has a capacity of around 7.5 kg lb) of hydrogen.

Whereas current pressure tanks need to be to withstand pressures of up to 700 bar, results in cavities of wasted the F 125!’s tank is designed to be at a pressure of 30 bar or less allowing it to be integrated into the bodyshell and act as a structural component.

The hydrogen cell stack centrally under the bonnet at the front of the F generates electricity to power electric motors installed the wheels. Using improved components from the SLS AMG E-ELL, e4MATIC all-wheel drive generates a continuous output of 170 kW hp) and a peak output of 230 kW (313 hp) to the F 125! from zero to 100 (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 220 (136.7 mph). Despite under the New European Driving (NEDC) the F 125! consumes 0.79 kg (1.74 lb) of hydrogen per 100 km (62 which is the equivalent of 2.7 liters US gal) of diesel.

The hydrogen fuel cell system is combined with a battery to provide a total range of up to 1,000 km (621 of which up to 50 km (31 miles) can be under power alone. The battery which is installed behind the seats, has a storage capacity og 10 kWh and can be up using inductive charging. Mercedes made a few assumptions in the F 125. One assumption being densities of 350 Wh per kg (roughly double performance) would be possible for type of battery by the time it is into series production.

To optimal traction, active vectoring assigns power to individual wheel as needed, wheel-specific yaw-damping is designed to improved handling stability at speeds. The F 125! also air suspension and continuous damper and allows the vehicle’s suspension to be adjusted based on speed to, for improve aerodynamics while on the

Auto assist

Using an Driving Assist system, the F is able to automatically carry out occurring maneuvers, such as cruising and lane changes, and in stages, even overtaking. to radio-based Car-to-X networking, the F is also able to exchange with other vehicles and equipped infrastructure, such as lights, warning signs and control centers. This allow the vehicle to be warned of emergency vehicles or obstacles they can be seen or heard, or to a driver that other have the right of way at an upcoming

Speech control

Mercedes thinks we’ll be interacting our vehicles very differently in and the @yourCOMAND infotainment system in the F reflects this vision. In Handling mode, control is mainly via speech, supplemented touch and hand-gestures — not some of the more common used by drivers today communicating with other

The head unit in the upper of the center console uses beam technology to provide an 3D display that is controlled via a with 3D fingertracking technology relevant information in clustered In addition to the head unit, the can also select the instrument and rear-view display using the selection bar. Another display installed on the front side is fully controlled by gestures to allow passengers to media from the rear of the

A mood-based function allows adjustments to the configuration of the system to be in seconds, while a Social Assistant will let drivers who is allowed to disturb them, or who information. Connectivity with the also provides drivers and with access to all their and eliminates the need to synchronize from various communication and devices.

With the elimination of mirrors, a high resolution display allows the driver to the traffic situation behind the

To the future

Although only a vehicle, Mercedes says with the F 125. the vision of driving with large, automobiles takes on a concrete and that many technologies used on previous research can now be found in its production cars. The is particularly enthusiastic about the for hydrogen fuel cells to electric driven large

Recognizing that alternative systems will also alternative infrastructure, Mercedes it is working with various to develop such infrastructure. To end, Mercedes’ parent Daimler and the Linde Group construct 20 more hydrogen stations in Germany to ensure a of regeneration-based hydrogen for the growing of fuel cell vehicles.

showcased the F 125! at the 2011 Motor Show and while the car isn’t likely to ever production — even in — expect parts of the to start appearing on new models the next decade.
