The 2025 Ener-G-Force From Mercedes Benz
Mercedes-Benz has designed the Ener-G-Force design concept for the LA Auto Show Design Challenge. It is a future off-roader car concept, which features the highway patrol vehicle in 2025. The concept based on the classic G-Class meets all the demands regarding increased traffic congestion, energy-saving pressure, and retains serious off-road capability. The SUV boasts “G” shaped LED headlights, and a series of distinct bends that add to its stunning looks. The scaled-down windows provide extra protection for law-enforcement personnel; a set of gadgets like emergency lights and a 360-degree topography scanner linked to the electronic suspension system are packed onto the roof. The spare-wheel compartment has been tured into a quick access tool box at the rear, though the most interesting thing here is the electric drivetrain. The Ener-G-Force design features four wheel-hub motors driven by fuel cells, but instead of filling up at the pump, a “hydro-tech converter” would generate fuel using recycled water stored in tanks on the roof. Designers from the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in California have built a 1:1-scale model of the concept and have also designed its civilian version.
