In 2020, at CES-2020 in Las Vegas, the automobile company Mercedes-Benz presented a new concept of its electric car, which became, perhaps, the main exhibit at the exhibition.

It is called Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR and has a reference to the fantasy world from the movie «Avatar». This is also hinted at by the selected range of colors from blue to purple. It is central to car design.

According to chief designer Gorden Wagener, they aimed to breathe life into this concept. Therefore, many design details hint that we have a completely living organism in front of us.

Design

It is very difficult to try to describe the design of this electric vehicle. There is a feeling that he has absolutely nothing ordinary.

A futuristic capsule bathed in light, as if it came to us straight from films about the future. That only is the shape of the wheels, exposed by light effects.

This shape allows the electric car to move not only back and forth, but also to the side at an angle of up to 30º. The most streamlined body shape indicates that this electric car will be able to show a high level not only in terms of comfort, but also driving dynamics on the road.

The spoiler deserves special attention. It is made in the form of 33 small «scales» that move synchronously, but their movement is arbitrary. The doors are absolutely transparent.

There are no controls in the cabin. In other words, it is controlled only by the autopilot. No steering wheel and no pedals.

The only control center is a panel located in the front center of the cabin. This is, in a way, the heart of the car. But not only in functionality, but also because it vibrates and contracts, imitating the beat of a real heart, which completely repeats the beat of the driver’s heart at the moment of touch.

The car menu is projected onto the passenger’s hand, and then he can control the car, choosing the commands he needs. This entire panel is also a screen that displays the actions selected by the passenger.

At the moment, the cost of the Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR has not been named. And for now, this is just a concept, so you should not expect such an electric car to appear on the road any time soon.

Most likely, this electric car will never be on it at all. After all, he has a different goal. Therefore, it makes no sense to guess what the price of the Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR will be.

Output

Mercedes-Benz has shown how it sees the future of its electric cars. And the future is very inspiring.
