Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force

Concept Car Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force

Mercedes-Benz will present at the end of November in Los Angeles Auto Show futuristic concept car
Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force. The company says that it is only a design idea might look like a  Mercedes-Benz G-Class in 2025.  The inspiration for the ENER-G-Force is provided by the Los Angeles Design challenge, which asked for designs imagining a Highway Patrol vehicle for 2025. It’s no surprise, then, that this G-inspired design looks something like a Mercedes-badged all-terrain pursuit vehicle from the future. Ener-G-Force is powered not by an internal-combustion engine, but by a hydrogen fuel cell and four in-wheel electric motors. The “hydro-tech converter” is fed by “recycled” water stored in tanks on the roof. If it sounds a bit outlandish, just remember that Daimler has a history of predicting a hydrogen-powered future, and has invested piles of R&D dollars toward the tech. Moreover, this vehicle is conceived for the year 2025, and by then the cops probably will feel the need to make up for decades of crappy Crown Vic fuel economy. The range? Five-hundred miles, says Daimler. The side skirts are adorned with F-Cell branding—for fuel-cell technology—and they open to provide access to the batteries. There is a futuristic light bar that partially hangs over the windshield, and the tailgate sports an integrated toolbox and tire iron. A roof-mounted camera watches the road ahead to prepare and pre-load the suspension for maximum traction and comfort—Mercedes calls this Terra-Scan.
