Glimpse into the Future – Mercedes Benz Ener G-Force Concept
Due to the huge outburst of future planning among major automobile makers, there are a number of different futuristic SUV concepts and models lined up for the future. All of the famous brands have designed or are still working on their ideas, which include names like Audi, Nissan, Porsche, etc. But Mercedes Benz has an edge over all others! The company is working on its 2025 model of the G-class, the Ener G-Force Concept. The concept was first revealed at the 2012 LA Show where it gained unparalleled popularity. The G-Force Concept is scheduled to be launched for the public in 2025.
Mercedes Ben has introduced a new concept zero pollution emission SUV which like other future concept cars, uses hydrogen as fuel with a very unique source of hydrogen. The Ener G-Force Concept will come with a Hydro-Tech Converter, which is a device capable of converting renewable and natural sources of energy into hydrogen. Therefore, the G-Force Concept makes use of hydrogen fuel cells and renewable energy sources for generating power, and doesn’t produce any pollution at all. A peculiar thing about the vehicle is that the tank where this fuel is to be stored is placed on the roof of the vehicle. The company claims that the vehicle will be able to travel more than 500 miles without producing any emissions!
Another futuristic technology that the G-Force will come with is the Terra Scan Topography Scanner. The SUV’s tires feature individual electric motors, springs and dampers each. The Terra Scan Topography Scanner is a unique device which scans a few feet of road in front of the vehicle on, and pre programmes the actions of the springs and the dampers. This feature will help a great deal in enhancing the driving experience and comfort.
Considering the looks of the vehicle, the designers at Mercedes have done an impeccable job. Featuring very bold and sharp looks, the G-Force Concept imparts brutal style and magnificence. The Ener G-Force doesn’t stray very much from its boxy G-Class brethren, and features slightly rounded edges. There is something futuristic about every minor detail that the vehicle flaunts. There is a beautiful grill in the front, on which the eye-catching Mercedes logo shines. The Ener G-Force Concept is no exception when it comes to the company’s G-Class off road driving superiority. That is why the concept features huge and strong wheels. The company’s designing director; Mr. Gorden Wagener proudly acclaims “The Ener-G-Force is the vision of an off-roader that, while reflecting tomorrow’s adventures, also invokes the genes of the Mercedes-Benz off-road icon, the G-Class. Modern and cool, it could also be a clue about a new beginning for the off-road design idiom of Mercedes-Benz”.
The Mercedes Benz G-Class has always been an excellent off road series, featuring only four wheel drive SUVs. There are no details about the performance and engine statistics of the G-Force concept yet, but there is no doubt that it would be insanely powerful. The concept is certainly one of the best SUVs of the future!
