Mercedes-Benz Made A Concept Car Inspired By The Movie Avatar


Mercedes-Benz thinks the future of independent driving could look a lot like a ten-year-old film.

The German luxury auto producer showed a special new idea vehicle, which is motivated by the 2019 blockbuster sci-fi movie “Avatar” and designed with the concept of Academy Prize-winning director James Cameron, at the 2020 CES in La Vegas on Tuesday.

Known as the Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR, the futuristic idea vehicle is meant to be both autonomous and sustainable. The vehicle specs 110-kilowatt-hour electric motor that can generate 469 horsepower and a range of about 435 miles.

The vehicle does not have a steering wheel, as Cameron and Mercedes instead imagine the vehicles center console would recognize “the human driver’s heartbeat and breath so man and machine literally combine into fully intuitive experience,” Mercedes said in a PR.

Though the Vision AVTR right advancement does not exist, biometric in vehicles are true and perfect: Hyundai launched biometric sensors in the Santa Fe SUV in 2019 that could examine a fingerprint to turn on the vehicle and even adjust seat place and mirrors.

With regard to sustainability, the Vision AVTR would hypothetically be run by battery technology using graphene.

Graphene, which was discovered in 2004, is the powerful stuff in the world, yet it is also the thinnest and able of stretching like rubber. In 2018, Earthdas found that graphene could be used to create batteries that power and fill twelve times quicker than lithium-ion batteries, though no graphene-based vehicle presently exists on the market.

Mercedes-Benz also said the AVTR vision graphene-based battery stuff would be compostable and fully recyclable.

The modern idea car from Mercedes-Benz does fit in some of the directions the German auto producer is looking to take in the more quick future in terms of electric vehicles and antonymous driving.

In September, Mercedes launched an all-electric concept vehicle known as the Vision EQS that would have a driving range of approximately 435 miles from a hundred-kilowatt-hour battery pack. Two months later, the firm declared plans to sell an electric Mercedes-Benz’s EQC starting in early 2020 at a price of $67,000. The electric SUV is guessed to compete with Tesla planned Model Y SUV, which will begin at a price of $39,000 when it becomes accessible in 2021.

And in December, Mercedes-Benz parent firm Daimler said it was testing a ride-hailing service using self-driving technology in Mercedes-Benz S-class vehicles in San Jose, California.
