The exhibition of new technologies CES in Las Vegas, the German auto giant has shown one of the most unusual concepts in its history – a model F015 Luxury in Motion. Five-meter car with hydrogen power plant is made of light materials, is equipped with a swivel chair and a huge touch screens throughout the cabin.
According to CEO Dieter Ditshe, F 015 concept is a “mobile living space” with an interior lounge areas in which each of the passengers and the driver can turn to each other. The car is regarded as one of the possible scenarios for the development of autonomous vehicle of the future, which is called “City of the Future 2030+.”
The length of the car is more than 5 meters, width – about 2 meters, the size of the wheelbase – 3.61 meters. The design of futuristic cars used recycled plastic, carbon fiber and aluminum.
The car is equipped with a single system of LED-lamps, which are used in the optics head, tail lights and interior lighting. By analogy with the “truck of the future”, which was introduced last year, the LEDs will be able to “communicate” with other road users. For example, if F 015 is under the control of man – white lamp light, and in the case of traffic on autopilot – blue.
High-resolution displays are located on the front doors and in the rear of the vehicle. Control is presumed to display information on the screen will be implemented by means of systems that track eye movements, gestures, and sensors.
The concept car is driven by a power plant with fuel cells and electric motors, but detailed specifications are not called.
