This is how Mercedes presents the premium car of the future: emotional design language, highly efficient drives, comprehensive safety and assistance systems paired with a generously dimensioned interior and a lot of comfort. Cast in shape, this philosophy celebrates its debut as a Mercedes F800 Style research vehicle on the Geneva Motor Show .

The Geneva study F800 shows the new Mercedes design

Based on a multi-drive platform that can be used for a Electric drive with fuel cell, as well as for the use of a plug-in Hybriden suitable, the 4.75 meter long, 1.94 meter wide and 1.45 meter high Mercedes F800 Style shows how the design language of Mercedes should develop in the future.

Long wheelbase (2.92 meters), short body overhangs and a sensuously flowing roofline define the basic shape. The new face of the brand also bears the large star in the center of the radiator, which is flanked by swinging lines in the grille and main headlights in LED technology, which are divided into individual segments for daytime running lights, indicators and main headlights. The flanks of the F800 are traversed by distinctive edges, the C-pillar extends far into the rear and thus shortens the trunk lid to a stub. In addition, the trunk volume is reduced to 440 liters compared to 475 liters in the current Mercedes C-class .

In contrast, the rear portals designed as sliding doors are innovative. With the simultaneous elimination of B-pillars, boarding should become easier in the future.

Operating system via touchpad in the MercedesF800

The interior, which is designed for five people, should be generous. The use of wood and light elements should ensure the feel-good atmosphere. Filigree lightweight construction elements on the doors, dashboard and seats are supposed to ensure a visual lightness. The F800 also anticipates what future control and display systems will look like at Mercedes. The control unit consists of a touchpad in the center console and a camera that records video images from the user's hand on the touchpad. In the live image, the hand is shown transparently in the central display above the center console: All functions of the current menu remain visible and can be operated by lightly pressing the touchpad. Further technical innovations are a further improved Presafe, an optimized Distronic and a mirror display in the instrument cluster, which is supposed to reduce eye strain when reading important information.

The F800 drive options: plug-in hybrid or fuel cell

To reduce environmental pollution it works with the two optional drive systems. As a petrol hybrid plug-in variant, the Mercedes F800 is powered by a 300 hp 3.5 liter petrol engine in combination with an 80 kW electric motor. Mercedes puts the total output at 409 hp. This means that the F800 should accelerate from zero to 100 km /h in 4.8 seconds and reach a governed top speed of 250 km /h. Mercedes indicates the average consumption at 2.9 liters (68 g /km CO2).

If you drive purely electrically, one charge of the 10 kWh lithium-ion battery is sufficient, which can also be recharged at any conventional socket can be for a distance of 30 kilometers. The combined operation should be 700 kilometers.

A ls F800 F-Cell enters the research car with a fuel cell and an electric motor. The 100 kW and 290 Nm electric motor accelerates the sedan from zero to 100 km /h in eleven seconds and reaches an electronically governed top speed of 180 km /h. The range is specified as 600 kilometers.
