In their pursue of the perfect “green” car, some automakers tend to withheld on styling and design. Thus why the 3rd generation Toyota Prius still looks like a glorified hatchback. Other automakers forgo the re-design process altogether. Instead, base its style, such as the Ford Fusion Hybrid, on current model line for a quick gain in market share. To address these design lapses and troubling trends, Mercedes-Benz created the F 800 Style Concept, a research platform that fits squarely on the issues of style and environmentally sound vehicle.

Designed as a flagship vehicle for its future lineup, the Mercedes-Benz F 800 Style is a five-seat premium sedan with 2 forms of alternative power trains a hydrogen full cell concept with a range of almost 600 kilometers and a Plug-In Hybrid with a range of 30 kilometers. Considerations were made in the passengers’ comfort by the carful positioning of the full cells and/or batteries, maximize the interior space of the vehicle. A lack of B-pillar equals an unobtrusive entry into the car. Yet its rigid body frame exceeds Mercedes’ own stringent safety standard.

Not lacking in luxury appointments and amenities, the F 800 Style incorporates genuine wood paneling done in a three-dimensional veneer process. Seats are as lightweight as they are sturdy, consists of a magnesium alloy shell with a carbon fiber seat back.

The concept vehicle also marks the introduction of Human-Machine Interface (HMI), a next generation instrument and display cluster set to replace the current Mercedes’ COMAND “infotainment system”. A camera-base touchpad control on the center console ensure intuitive yet accurate command of climate control system, telephone, stereo and navigation systems, and Internet access. A upgraded DISTRONIC PLUS Traffic Jam Assistant guidance system automatically guide the vehicle into turns and cornering up to 40 km per hour without human assistance.

The Mercedes-Benz F 800 Style Concept Vehicle will make its public debut next month at the Geneva Auto Show.
