At the of the car could be found pivot-and-slide whose light operating was controlled by an electrically powered system in similar fashion to the doors. This servo can be found today in various from Mercedes-Benz.

The electrical energy required to this modern-day Open door opener was drawn solar collectors mounted on the of the F 100. Covering an area of two metres, this solar could generate 100 watts of which was continuously fed into the electrical system, paving the way for the of further features too. If the car was parked with the summer sun down on it, for instance, the electronics use the solar power to actuate a blower, which would expel the hot air that had built up the car into the atmosphere. Since this very same has been offered as a convenience for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
