Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion: at a glance

The Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion concept is definitely one of the most futuristic luxury car concepts shown at this year's ongoing Detroit Auto Show.

Unveiled recently at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the oddly named F 015 Luxury in Motion actually hints to the real future of cars around two decades from now.

It is a self-driving autonomous sedan, boasting electric power, and a body made up of carbon fiber, aluminum and high-strength steel. It is 7 inches longer than existing Chrysler 300 and offers a very roomy interior. Still, it is nearly
40 per cent lighter than a conventional current vehicle.

The sleek four-door sedan concept features extremely long wheelbase; four seats that can be rotated to one another to create a moving lounge; and doors with built-in touchscreen panels. It draws power from a plug-in hybrid system that generates power using a hydrogen fuel cell when the batteries run dry.

The fuel cell/battery powers a couple of electric motors that in turn rotates the rear wheels. The LED exterior lights of the concept sedan allow others on the road to know if the vehicle is in autonomous mode or being driven by human. The lights turn blue when the vehicle is in autonomous mode and white when it is being driven by a human. According to Mercedes-Benz's prediction, cars like the F 015 will be running on roads around the globe by the year of 2030.
