Mercedes-Benz will present the Ener-G-Force at the LA Auto Show


For the Los Angeles Show Design Challenge, the organizers have prepared a series of events. For starters, the carmakers were asked to think of a patrol vehicle for the year 2025. One result involved the Germans from Mercedes-Benz and their Advanced Design Center California that came up with the Ener-G-Force concept. This was actually developed for an off-road patrol car and here are the details. The model was turned into reality with a 1:1-scale model and will be presented to the public at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show that will take place at the end of this month. The specialists do not deny the fact that this model might preview a future design direction for its classic G-Class. This model is actually in production since 1979. The new Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force concept is a modern and interesting model so something quite specific for the German manufacturer. It contains a lot of elements borrowed from the G model. For example it contains proportions and design elements from the standard G-Class. The idea was not to take a step back, but to take one further and in the same time to provide the characteristic features of the G. The designers managed to bring some fresh elements for the new SUV. For example the new Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force concept features a slightly off-center pull-out compartment that can hold a wide variety of equipment items. The best thing about it is that it can be reached without having to open the lift gate.



The model receives power from a futuristic fuel-cell power train that actually works with recycled water stored in tanks on the roof to power four wheel-hub motors. These provide a theoretical operating range of approximately 800 km or close to 500 miles. At the 2012 Los Angeles Motor Show, enthusiasts and fans will have the opportunity to see for themselves what we are talking about.
