Mercedes-Benz BlueZERO Concept Video & Photos  

0 评论

Today we're bringing you an animated video of the Mercedes-Benz BlueZERO concept car. Slated for introduction in Detroit next month, the concept comes in three different flavors.

All three versions are based on the B Class model, including the all electric BlueZERO E-Cell. The EV includes lithium-ion batteries, a 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor and 320 Nm of torque. Mercedes is exploring the idea that people are more interested in a short-charge short-distance vehicle with this concept. Charge time is two-hours, but the range is a scant 100 km (62 miles).

In case you want an electric vehicle, but not as concerned with being zero emission, the BlueZERO E-Cell Plus includes the same battery and motor as its brother, but also comes with a small combustion engine which works as an electricity-producing generator. The turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine comes from Smart, and will extend driving range to 600 km (373 mi).

The video shows a fairly standard shaped five-door hatch, with some fine detailing lines and bends accentuated in the side paneling. This animated version has five-spoke wheels, a glass top, and a snub-nose at the front that -from above- makes the front of the car look like a hammerhead shark.

Each model serves its own purpose, with different ranges, fuels, and technology supports. As most automakers are competing for longest-range EVs despite battery charge time, MB is going a slightly different -and perhaps more innovative- route. No doubt, the Mercedes-Benz BlueZERO concept trio is an experiment meant to gather public opinion to see what people want most: a greener car, shorter charge time, longer range, or more power.

Finally, MB will show us the BlueZERO F-Cell, an electric vehicle powered by a hydrogen fuel-cell. The last engine is comparable to a 2.0 liter diesel engine also with 100 kW (136 hp) and 320 Nm of torque, but only emits droplets of water.
