New vehicle with fuel drive

Press Release

comfort and zero emissions: presents new research vehicle fuel cell drive

The new F 600 is the latest in the series of sensational vehicles from Mercedes-Benz point the way forwards for the future. by a zero-emission fuel cell with an output of 85 kW/115 hp, the car with a family-friendly design the equivalent of 2.9 litres of fuel per 100 and has an operating range in excess of 400 The performance and cold start of the groundbreaking drive unit also undergone considerable This represents a major towards bringing the fuel drive up to full production a goal that we aim to achieve time between 2012 and comments Dr. Thomas Weber, AG Board Member for Research and Head of Development at the Mercedes Car By developing the fuel cell, we are a new basis for supplying energy in vehicles which will a further lasting improvement to environmental compatibility. In addition to the cell technology, the Mercedes-Benz vehicle also showcases a new operating concept with displays and new-style seats, with other pioneering designed to enhance safety and comfort.

Fuel cells use the reaction between hydrogen and to generate electrical power in a that produces no emissions. Herbert Kohler, Director of Body and Drive Research at We have made some advances to this trailblazing Despite being around 40 per more compact than the fuel cell in the F 600 HYGENIUS now more efficiently than and is notable for its good cold-start This has been achieved to the inclusion of innovations such as the fuel stacks, the electric for supplying air and an all-new humidification and system.

The F 600 HYGENIUS achieves a maximum output of 85 kW/115 hp combined a peak torque of 350 Newton The fuel cell drive generates a constant power of 60 kW/82 hp and a torque of 250 Newton

With any surplus energy stored in a powerful lithium-ion the system acts in a similar to a hybrid drive, selecting the power source to use depending on the situation. When parking or for instance, the electric motor its power from the battery while both fuel and battery feed it with in unison when the vehicle is producing the peak power of 85 kW/115 hp.

The electric motor as a generator that charges the during vehicle braking by drive energy.

The drive the high-voltage battery and the hydrogen have all been housed in a manner beneath the occupant while the high-torque electric — which is also a new from Mercedes-Benz — has integrated into the rear-axle The lithium-ion battery is featuring for the time in a fuel cell from Mercedes-Benz and is a further key in the increase in power.

Mobile station supplies energy at home and away

As well as clean energy to drive the vehicle, the fuel cell can serve as a mobile power its 66 kW of electrical power would be sufficient to keep several houses supplied with

Passengers aboard the F 600 HYGENIUS stand to benefit from its energy reserves: the cup holders use electrical power from the cell to keep drinks or hot are just one example of this. The cell’s energy also electrical devices to be operated at the standard voltage level following onboard conversion granting the occupants total from the mains network on outings or business trips. All have to do is connect the device to a socket in the tailgate.

Compact-class car boasting luxury-class

The four-door F 600 HYGENIUS also a mark for itself when it to comfort and versatility. Despite the compact length of just millimetres, the levels of space are impressive, even by luxury-class The distance between the front and seats — a useful of the freedom of movement and spaciousness measures 945 millimetres, and can be extended by up to a 400 millimetres thanks to the sliding of the individual rear seats. puts the research vehicle’s dimensions on a par with those in exclusive luxury saloons.

concept offering families the they are looking for

A host of design solutions make the F 600 an ideal family car. the child and family-friendly design of the for example: the front passenger and the individual seats in the rear a new technology allowing the backrest to be either way around. The backrests can be forwards and reversed in such a way ISOFIX child seats can be into place on the seat in a rearwards-facing position. The face-to-face arrangement boosts safety at the time as making it easier to to young children en route, the additional fore-aft and crossways of the rear seats allowing to be reached easily from the rear seat.

Adjustable cushioning encourages a relaxed and posture

Mercedes-Benz has devised a new seat for the driver featuring a backrest cushion whose width and tilt can be adjusted to the of the occupant’s body by means of motors, and which offers a high level of support in the area. The backrest itself has a mounting that allows it to the upper body movements and the strain on the intervertebral discs, of the seat position. If, for instance, the tilts the seat further the lower section of the backrest automatically pivots forwards to the pelvic area.

Two-piece tailgate and picnic in luggage compartment

The tailgate of the F 600 has a two-piece design offering practicality. If space is at a premium, a of a button opens the tailgate with the lower section inwards so that the tailgate through a much tighter arc as it As this is happening, the rear drops down, pulling out the plate of the luggage compartment at the time to simplify loading.

parked in a lay-by, a picnic or at the beach, the movable luggage floor can be converted into a seating facility that’s from the elements. Two extending panels can be pulled out from the floor plate and hooked the roof liner overhead, them to serve as temporary supports for two people.

The front of the latest Mercedes research emulate the space-saving styling of the with a technology that is to make getting into and out of the as easy and convenient as possible parked in tight spaces. An new mechanism swings the doors at a slant, meaning that take up less space to the when opening than car doors. Gas-filled struts are to hold the door open in any

Video cameras for leaving the and changing lane safely

If another car or a bicycle is from behind, the system automatically disable the doors for a period to avoid the risk of a when they are opened. A signal sounds at the same inside the F 600 accompanied by a red danger that illuminates in the mirror

Out on the road, the video system the blind spot of both mirrors and warns drivers to change lane if a vehicle is from behind.

Two-level concept with sophisticated new recognition facility

Mercedes-Benz F 600 HYGENIUS

In order to the vast multitude of functions to be quickly, intuitively and, importantly, safely, the engineers at have devise a concept on the proven operating principle in the new Mercedes-Benz S Class. This helps to minimise driver which in turn benefits safety.

As in the Mercedes flagship buttons in a control panel in the of the dashboard serve to operate the commonly used systems, as the radio, air conditioning, car phone and These buttons can be easily by both the driver and the front The push/turn control knob in the of the control panel can automatically whether it is being operated by the or the front passenger, enabling to program their personal control settings.

This user recognition facility is on the electrical signals transmitted in the the instant the front passenger the push/turn control knob in the a data circuit closes the control knob and a sensor mat in the cushion, switching the display to the for the front passenger side. The screen in the centre of the dashboard can be to the side at the push of a button, to the front passenger an even view of it and prevent the driver becoming distracted.

Advanced functions are the task of the COMAND which was first developed for the new It extends out of the armrest between the two seats whenever required and straightforward navigation through the system’s control menus.

displays for fast vision

The images on both high-resolution displays in the dashboard are diverted by of two mirrors before being to appear at a point 1.40 in front of the driver. This virtual display technology Mercedes-Benz represents a key improvement to safety as it shortens the time for drivers to switch their from what’s taking on the road far ahead to the close-up cluster display. Scientific have confirmed that, this technology, the driver’s do not have to constantly adjust close and long range so do not tire as quickly.

High-power light-emitting diodes for all functions

Headlamps with LEDs enhance the driver’s vision and help to avoid The LEDs are distributed over projector modules which the light beam evenly a wide area. The light in the centre is activated as required, on the driving situation, and also additional functions, such as beam, the Active Light and the cornering light. All of the various features are performed simply by individual LEDs on and off electronically, eliminating the need for moving such as those currently for the Active Light System. has also used LED technology for the lights and tail lights. In braking situations, flashing lights provide an early to drivers behind, reducing the of them ramming into the of the car.

Preventive PRE-SAFE® with knee protection new head restraints

The preventive protection system PRE-SAFE®, was first premiered in the Mercedes-Benz in 2002, will continue to be by Mercedes engineers in future. Two anticipatory protective functions been incorporated aboard the F 600 active knee protection to the front passenger plus restraints with automatically side bolsters to hold the still. These new features are together with the other measures prior to an impending to prepare both occupants and for a collision. In the event of an impact, the belts and airbags are able to the occupants as effectively as possible; if an is averted at the last minute, the PRE-SAFE® systems return to inactive state.

Successful transfer from into series production

has unveiled eleven research in all since the start of the 1980s. series of sensational vehicles from Auto 2000 in right up to today’s F 600 HYGENIUS documents the tremendous dedication and with which the Stuttgart-based manufacturer investigates core in the field of passenger car technology and new solutions for the future.

Many of the which are now everyday series-production seemed futuristic when were first revealed in one of the vehicles many years DISTRONIC proximity control is such a system. It made its appearance in the F 100 in 1991 and made its debut just seven later in the S-Class. The Active Control system now fitted in CL-Class, S-Class and SL-Class is another prime example of being transferred successfully research to series-production vehicle, as are the Active Light System, control and the carbon-fibre bodyshell. The new F 600 is set to perpetuate this trend as its a drive technology for the future development for series production.
