Mercedes-Benz F 800 Style

A look at a new Mercedes small-car also forecasts some technology.

By the time we head to the auto show in a few days, won’t be many surprises to reportwhich is fine by us, as we’ll be arguing with French-speaking about accepting euros of Swiss francs.

The F800 previews a new family of car from based on a platform that’s MFA, which stands for Front-Drive Architecture. It will a sedan, coupe, cabriolet, and essentially replacing the B-class. In it looks bigger than it is, which led some (ourselves to mistakenly believe this to be the CLS. Our sources say that vehicle will make it to the and that some styling will remain, although the vehicle will look different when it goes on in about eighteen months’ That’s good news to us the concept seems to be based on ’s “Derelicte” line of spun as fashion. It looks they borrowed ideas a few carmakers and combined them one, then slapped on an SLS and put a BMW 3-series front fascia on the

On the mechanical side of the equation, says the F800 could use fuel-cell or plug-in hybrid Both options are “already to the series production stage,” to Prof. Herbert Kohler, of E-Drive Future Mobility and Environmental Officer at Daimler” and the bearer of what is officially the title we’ve ever on anything. Ever.

The hybrid couples a direct-injection, 300-hp V-6 gas with a 109-hp electric that lives in the seven-speed housing and draws its power a 10-kWh lithium-ion battery under the rear seat. simply adding the power of the internal-combustion engine and electric will not accurately produce a system’s actual power But in this case, Mercedes just that, stating the has 409 combined horsepower.

The F800’s hybrid powertrain is based on that of the upcoming hybrid, which is set to out-thrift its S400 hybrid once the S-class arrives. Electric-only is 18 miles, although speed closer to the battery-operated limit of 75 than what the S500 allowwill no doubt shorten leash. The vehicle’s nav system use the map to show the radius of travel on remaining battery power, that functionality seems given that there’s an engine aboard to propel the car those borders. Mercedes the feature by saying, “should only permit purely automobile traffic in the future, the can determine whether the electric of his or her vehicle is sufficient for the journey and out of the urban area.” We think should municipalities only purely electric automobile in the future, we’ll be finding a new in which to reside.

Nevertheless, M-B claims 81 mpg on the Euro cycle. Despite such the F800 also is said to impressive performance. Zero to 60 mph is at just 4.7 seconds, and top speed of is restricted to the usual German of 155 mph.

For the fuel-cell versionwe forgotten about itthe beneath the F800’s rear would be displaced by two hydrogen and two additional tanks would be in the transmission tunnel. The motor be the same one as is in the B-class F-cell. is available now through a pilot in California. An electric motor the rear axle would 134 hp and torque in the neighborhood of 210 lb-ft. Not is this powertrain already in the F-cell, but Mercedes also has a of city buses operating in propelled by a double dose of arrangement.

Intelligence Inside

While the hybrid and fuel-cell drivetrains are whether we’ll see the technology into the F800’s cabin is a toss-up. The familiar COMAND gets a new interface that a touchpad similar to that of the new A8. With Mercedes’ version, the uses a fingertip to draw on the and a camera captures its motion and a ghostly image on the infotainment in the center stack. This the information display operates as a screen without demanding the lean forward and without the fingerprints. It also recognizes similar to those familiarized by the wipe, push, turn, and Additionally, the display in the instrument uses a mirror to make appear farther away, will reduce fatigue as the eye from near to far focus often.

Mercedes’ existing safety sees an update with the as well. Distronic Plus, the cruise control, gets Jam Assistant, which will not maintain following distance to and up from a stop, but will now the vehicle ahead and control inputs up to 25 mph.

Pre-Safe, gets updated, being to Pre-Safe 360. It will now the area behind the car when in traffic and engage the brakes before anticipated rear-end the better to prevent the Mercedes being pushed into the ahead. But if the driver sees a for escape and jumps on the gas, the car immediately release the brakes.

While we aren’t so excited the shape of the F800 and hope the small car doesn’t look so like what you see here, we forward to seeing the technology in the F800 in future Mercedes
