Safety First: The Mercedes-Benz ESF

JULY 27, 2009

If you’ve walked away from a car wreck, chances are good Mercedes-Benz had a hand in your — even if you weren’t driving a at the time. The German automaker has a safety innovator since the developing features that found their way into from every manufacturer on Mercedes invented the “safety passenger cell, for instance, and and rear-crumple zones, too. And the 1970s, the company’s vigorous Safety Vehicle program in German) produced more 30 concept cars designed to its cutting-edge safety technology, antilock brakes, traction stability control, and automotive air

This year, Mercedes the radical ESF 2009, its first experimental safety car since Based on the new S400 Hybrid (on sale now in Europe; coming to American showrooms), the ESF 2009 a dizzying array of occupant-protection designed not only to allow walk away from a but to help them avoid one in the place.

Air-bag technology figures in the ESF 2009. The car has plenty of inflatable the usual locations, of course, but in places you might not expect. a curtain air bag that drops between the seats to prevent from knocking heads a side impact and air bags on the that more evenly deceleration force across the chest. The ESF 2009 also the truly newfangled “braking air bag mounted beneath the front end of inflates when a frontal is inevitable, slowing the car by increasing with the ground and keeping the end from diving during braking and possibly plowing the rear end of a larger vehicle. And its familiar S-class skin, the ESF a series of “folded” internal structures that (like an air says Mercedes) inflate an enormous and instantaneous charge of gas, providing additional stability during a collision.

And it takes a village, a clever radio system allows the ESF to relay pertinent data road conditions—an icy patch, for as

Doubtless, a few of these new-age features (there are more a dozen) are destined to be recalled as more than concept-car of fancy. But if Mercedes-Benz history is a much of the ESF 2009’s advanced will land in a production before long. And for somebody—maybe you—that could be a lifesaver. )
