By Miller

As you’ve likely before, blue is the new green. The concept is the latest proof of saying from Mercedes-Benz.

September’s introduction of the S400 The BlueZERO concept is actually a set of concept vehicles built on a vehicle architecture. The vehicle is to accommodate various modes of each of which is incorporated in one of the concept cars. The BlueZERO are constructed with the same sandwich-floor architecture first on the Mercedes A-Class and continued the B-Class. All three BlueZERO use the same key technical components and dimensions. The basic vehicle is 166 long, with seating for adults and a 17.6 cubic-foot compartment with a total payload capacity of about lbs.

Each BlueZERO concept car is with a unique electrical systems. Each of the three features front-wheel drive, lithium-ion batteries with capacity up to 35 kWh and electric motor maximum output of 100 kW (134 All three variants accelerate to 62 mph in than 11 seconds, with an top speed of 93 mph meant to allow travel while preserving range and efficiency.

The unique of the BlueZERO E-CELL was truly on the Mercedes stand, though not pretty. The BlueZERO concept an aerodynamic design featuring a front apron, as cooling air are not required. The 20 inch wheels are designed and feature low-rolling-resistance The tailgate skin is manufactured translucent Lexan, allowing the frame inside and the unique LED to be through it. Similar LED lighting in shapes is used at the front of the

As it turns out, the beauty of the vehicles is not in its exterior sheetmetal but in its packaging. The sandwich construction of the results in a raised seating leading to excellent visibility and crash safety. Because vehicle’s propulsion system below the floor, interior is maximized, and the center of gravity is This architecture is especially in electric vehicles, which have cramped interiors and a of luggage space because have to be stored in those

The first vehicle in the series, and the one on Detroit, is the ALU-BEAM yellow BlueZERO E-CELL, which has a drivetrain and a range of 124 miles on drive from a 35 kWh battery operating voltage between 240 and 426 V. The features a charging capacity of 15 kW connected to a special charger, stores enough energy for a of 31 miles within 30 minutes. An of charging is needed for a range of 62 and two hours charging is required for a 122 range, with a full coming in three to four Charging times are doubled charging from a household which can provide only 7 kW capacity.

Pictured in ALU-BEAM green the second vehicle in the series is the F-CELL (fuel cell), yields a hydrogen fuel has a range around 250 miles. The cell has a maximum output of 90 kW, and can be to temperatures as low as 13 degrees below 0, The BlueZERO F-Cell uses 2.9 liters of fuel (diesel per 100 km, which equates to approximately 97 Based on this fuel and fuel capacity, the vehicle can over 250 miles, while no exhaust fumes nor CO2- water vapor. The BlueZERO can operate solely on battery or on with the fuel cell on demand for power. The hydrogen cell has shorter refueling than previous Mercedes cell vehicles.

The final vehicle in the series is the E-CELL PLUS, pictured in orange. The E-CELL PLUS electric drive as is found concept, but also has the same 1.0 3-cylinder turbocharged engine in the smart fortwo, used as a extender which has an output of 50 kW (67 HP) at a 3500 RPM. When it can charge the 17.5 kWh battery by an and an additional internal combustion used as a range extender. version has an all-electric range of 62 and a total range up to 370 miles a full tank of fuel for the extender. When operated on the extender, fuel consumption on the European cycle is 4.5 liters/100 km (62 Mercedes technical information that if configured properly, the extender could directly the vehicle wheels or simply the batteries while running in mode.

With the information about the concepts, Mercedes also the development of an additional platform for compact vehicles with right-sized internal combustion That platform will components with the BlueZERO to provide flexibility in the manufacture of Mercedes vehicles. Small-scale of fuel cell cars is set to later this year, and production of battery electric vehicles is to commence in 2010. either of those vehicles feature the looks, architecture, or of the BlueZERO concept is unclear, but clever trio from offers a fresh look at the of efficient vehicles it is looking many of us may be driving in the future.
