Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo Concept with Hydrogen Fuel Cell
First it was the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. Then it was the F 015 Luxury in Motion car. Now, Mercedes-Benz has introduced its third autonomous concept at the Tokyo Auto Show, aptly named the Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo Concept.
The futuristic van is a glimpse into the future, not only with its self-driving capabilities and forward-thinking design, but also with its hybrid hydrogen fuel cell and electric charging system. That combination produces zero emissions over a 600-miles driving range.
Although it’s nowhere near production, it provides a window into what Mercedes-Benz projects the future of the automotive industry to look like. What might be even more striking, however, is the Vision Tokyo Concept’s interior, which is designed around the autonomous capabilities of the vehicle.
Autonomous Capabilities Create “Chill Zone” in Vision Tokyo Concept
Mercedes-Benz referred to the Vision Tokyo interior as a “chill-out zone in the midst of the megacity mayhem” and based on its appearance and functionality, it looks to deliver on that promise.
Perhaps the most “chill” aspect of the interior is the wrap-around couch that seats up to 5 passengers arcing to the side and behind the driver seat. The open concept truly feels like a lounge on wheels.
Although the exterior looks like something out of Tron, it matches the design language Mercedes-Benz has used on other concept cars this year, which clearly outlines the brand’s vision for the future.
Take a closer look at this incredible concept in the photo gallery below and see what might be in store for the automotive world down the road.
