The Mercedes Vision AVTR is definitely not the next S-Class

Team behind the Avatar movie helped Merc create its CES concept

In probably the unlikeliest partnership since Land Rover’s style employer joined a swimwear business to launch a water-proof three-piece suit, Mercedes has actually jumped into bed with the individuals behind 2009’s Character and its numerous forthcoming sequels.

The following automobile, revealed at CES in Las Vegas, “works as a creative overview to a future in which our connection with ourselves, nature and also innovation has altered”, claims Merc futurologist Alexander Mankowsky.

The Vision AVTR (meaning ‘advanced automobile makeover’) draws ideas from nature– there are no straight lines, transparent doors and also “bionic flaps”, motivated by animals from the flick, which impact aerodynamics and supposedly enable the AVTR to communicate with its surroundings.

After that there are the round wheels, which suggest the AVTR can relocate diagonally and also avoid over gassy surface areas without tearing them to shreds. Inside it’s everything about the hologram-based HMI that jobs menus into the palm of your hand. As well as certainly there is no wheel– the cars and truck recognises you from your breathing as well as heartbeat.

Lasting products have actually been used in the car’s building– from the timber and also textiles that cut the interior to the (theoretical) battery, which makes use of graphene-based natural cell chemistry and also is hence free from toxic as well as expensive steels and also as a result totally recyclable.
