Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo

Mercedes Vision Tokyo

The Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo is a luxury van concept which made its world debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The Vision Tokyo is designed to showcase semi-autonomous technologies, as well as a system designed to monitor the occupants and become more familiar with them in order to offer predictive preferences for specific journeys or needs.

The Vision Tokyo is a vehicle designed to appeal to younger buyers, specifically those living in large cities. Or as Mercedes puts it "urban Generation Z". A generation which has grown up with intrusive social media and in a highly connected world where every burp and fart must be recorded for posterity and shared with friends. Friends who may or may not be people they have ever actually met.

Instead of a conventional windscreen, the Vision Tokyo features a continuous stretch of glass panelling – similar to the glazed cockpit of a powerboat. As was the case with the AMG Vision Gran Turismo, the front headlamps are set well to either side and at an angle. The area across the front of the vehicle can be used to display a series of different lighting functions. If music is playing inside the vehicle the display will, for example, visualise a sound pattern, rather like a sound analyser.

The concept is 4.8 metres long, 2.1 m wide and 1.6 m tall. It features an upward-swinging door on the left-hand side which grants access to a spacious cabin that can host up to five passengers sitting on a large oval shaped couch. The interior is packed with big wraparound LCDs and there are also 3D holograms for the entertainment system, apps and maps.

Although the Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo concept is equipped with an autonomous driving system, manual control is still possible via the steering wheel which switches its position from standby to driving when the driver's seat is released from the center of the couch.

Powering the Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo concept is a revised version of the F-CELL plug-in hybrid system showcased on the F 015 Luxury in Motion concept.
