2011 Mercedes-Benz F 125!

At the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz has presented a new concept vehicle, the F 125! Mercedes-Benz; an innovative concept in the luxury segment which looks towards two car generations ahead. This research combines pioneering and highly efficient storage, drive and bodyshell technologies with unique control and display concepts.

The F 125! Concept is an innovative four-seater luxury saloon with a powerful, emission-free electric drive system with a range of up to 1000 km. This drive system is powered by a high-voltage lithium-sulfur battery with a specific energy density of 350 Wh per kg at cell level, which allows considerably higher recuperation rates in combination with the e4MATIC all-wheel drive. These enable the F 125! To sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, with a top speed of 220 km/h. It has a NEDC fuel consumption of only 0.79 kilograms of hydrogen per 100 kilometres (= 2.7 litres diesel equivalent).

The F 125! Concept features a bodyshell of innovative, lightweight hybrid construction with a high proportion of fiber-reinforced plastics and an intelligent mix of carbon-fiber, aluminum and high-strength steels, which allows a significant weight reduction while offering a further considerable improvement in safety. A high-strength construction with crash-responsive protective systems within the doors allows the omission of B-pillars, as well as the use of wide gull-wing doors which allow convenient access to the four seats. The gull-wing doors of light-weight CRP construction can also be opened and closed by hand-gestures.

The F 125! Concept provides ease and flexibility in terms of control and display system. It features control through touch, speech and hand gestures. With the visionary infotainment system “@yourCOMAND”, the F 125! allows internet-based voice control, integration into social media and extensive remote control of vehicle settings and entertainment functions. It also features the Advanced Driving Assist for semi-autonomous driving. While a highly attractive displays using 3D and projector-beam technology open up new visual possibilities.

The F 125! Concept also presents itself with an expressive design which transfers the classic Mercedes design idiom into the future.
