Following on from its successful world debut earlier in the year, the Mercedes-Benz F015 Luxury in Motion research vehicle is currently on display at the Shanghai Motor Show 2015. The F015 Luxury in Motion provides a glimpse into the future of motoring and we just had to check it out in person once again!
From a design standpoint, the Mercedes-Benz F015 Luxury in Motion features flowing lines and a prominent greenhouse to provide immense levels of comfort and space in the cabin. Other key styling elements are the low-slung front end, smooth and streamlined roof line as well as the flat front windscreen. Extremely short front and rear overhangs are also featured while the wheels have been placed at the extreme corners of the F015 Luxury in Motion to maximise interior space. All told, the F015 Luxury in Motion has a large wheelbase of 3610 mm and the car itself is 5.2 metres long, 2.018 metres wide and 1.52 metres tall.
Beneath the skin, the Mercedes-Benz F015 Luxury in Motion includes an F-Cell plug-in hybrid drive system which has a total range of 1100 km with a 200 km range running purely on electric power also a key element of the car’s fuel efficiency. Such figures mean the F015 Luxury in Motion can cover similar distances to comparable diesel-engined cars but on pure electric power and consequently with zero local emissions.
