The Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion Concept has been officially unveiled at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas.
Mercedes-Benz’s newest creation is called the F 015 Luxury in Motion and it is a concept car which has been introduced at the 2015 CES, in Las Vegas. The model in question is described as being a “self-driving luxury sedan” and it is the company’s response to the increasing number of autonomous vehicles. The one-off vehicle stands at 5,220 mm in length, 2,018 mm in width and 1,524 mm in height, riding on a 3,610 mm long wheelbase.
The carmaker has removed the B-pillars so access to the cabin is very easy and for the same purpose, the doors can open at a 90 degree angle. The interior design of the concept car signed by Mercedes-Benz has four rotating lounge chairs, which will swing outwards by 30 degrees when the doors are opened, and will be placed in a face to face configuration too. A lot of displays, six at a tota, are found on the dashboard.
The Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion Concept is using a plug-in hybrid hydrogen fuel cell electric setup, which is combining two rear electric motors, producing 134 HP (100 kW) and 199 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque each, to a total of 268 HP (200 kW) and 398 lb-ft) of torque, fed by the lithium0ion batteries and sent to the rear wheels. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the concept car needs 6.7s and top speed has been electronically limited to 200 km/h (124 mph). The range of the car apparently stands 200 km (124 miles).
