At the Tokyo Motor Show, Daimler has unveiled a new concept car, named Vision Tokyo. It’s the follow-up of the former F015.
Targeting the Generation Z, the vehicule is a connected lounge, allowing passengers to communicate and chat in autonomous mode.
But, what’s under the hood ?
The bodyshell of the Vision Tokyo has been designed to allow the crash-protected integration of a fuel cell-powered electric drive system. This is based on the trailblazing F-CELL PLUG-IN HYBRID of the F 015 Luxury in Motion and combines the on-board generation of electricity with a particularly powerful and compact high-voltage battery that can be charged contactlessly via induction. The use of pressure tanks made from CFRP is envisaged for the storage of hydrogen in the concept car. The electric hybrid system has a total range of 980 kilometres, of which some 190 kilometres are courtesy of battery-powered driving and around 790 kilometres on the electricity produced in the fuel cell.
