The Mercedes-Benz F 015 – The Future of Driving

Imagine your office, living room and mode of transportation all wrapped into one remarkable vehicle. This concept might seem alien, but it’s a reality. The Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion Concept Car will transform your every notion of what a car can and should be.

The exterior of the F 015 is a stunningly sleek streamlined vision of aluminum and high-tensile steel. Open the saloon-style doors and enter into a world that you never thought possible. The interior “lounge” features is deceptively spacious and features four rotating seats that can be configured into the traditional front-seat/back-seat arrangement or into a face-to-face layout. Six high resolution digital display screens grace the front, rear and side panels. This panorama-like digital “virtual arena” allow the passengers to command the vehicle through various movements, touch-screens and eye tracking. Luxury abounds with white nappa leather seats, an open-pore walnut wood floor, harmoniously accented with modern and glamorous metal and glass throughout.

It’s difficult to imagine reclining back into your seat while watching your favorite movie, or conducting a face-to-face meeting while gliding down I-95 at 65 mph, but this reality is closer that you imagine. Mercedes-Benz vehicles are already using semi-autonomous technology right now. Features like DISTRONIC PLUS® and PRESAFE® are paving the way for a car that can truly drive itself with little or no human interaction. The autonomous driving capabilities of the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Concept Car will turn the stress and strain of driving into a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Think of how amazing it would be to unwind on your way home with your favorite television program, or leaving work early and using your commuting time to wrap up your end-of-day tasks. However, if you prefer your own instincts fear not; the F 015 also accommodates manual driving.

While all of the exciting technology, styling and luxury of the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Concept Car are impressive, safety is still top priority. New “Smart Body Structure (SBS)” utilizes high-strength steel and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic to create an amazingly strong and lightweight body shell. The overall structural engineering of the F 015 can absorb an extremely high amount of crash energy with minimal impact on the passengers. Beltlines under the side windows will “inflate” instantly in the event of a side-on collision, also absorbing an impressive amount of crash energy to help keep the passengers safe.

The Mercedes-Benz F 015, the future of driving, and closer to reality than you can imagine.
