Mercedes-Benz is in a process of reinventing its design language, going from the sharp edged and relatively boxy designs at present to a much more fluid form for its next-generation of cars. Now, Mercedes has provided a look that is as fluid as the F800 Concept Car itself in a video glimpse around and inside the car. If a picture is worth a thousand words, video must be worth a million.
Its plug-in hybrid drivetrain consists of a 300 horsepower gasoline V-6 engine and a 109 horsepower electric motor running on lithium-ion batteries that can be charged by a household power socket. According to Mercedes-Benz, this is enough to accelerate the vehicle from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph – all while returning a fuel economy of 81 mpg. A less powerful hydrogen fuel cell model has also been developed.
The new Mercedes-Benz F800 will be making its world debut next week at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Stay tuned for an update with live images from the show floor but in the meantime check out some photos from the gallery and the official video below. [via MotorAuthority]
