Filed under: Concept Cars, Frankfurt Motor Show, Hybrid, Sedan, Technology, Videos, Mercedes-Benz, Design/Style, Electric



Mercedes-Benz has been tooting its horns all year about having been in business for 125 years, and to its eternal credit, it's done so at the top. For the Daimler boys, the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show is being used to showcase what the next 125 years in business (knock on burl walnut) might bring, and it starts in part with the hydrogen-powered F-125! Concept seen here.

With a brief to build a large, luxurious four-seater with zero emissions, the F-125! conceptually employs lithium-sulphur batteries, a body comprised of several metals and composites, passenger controls via "touch, speech and hand gestures," semi-autonomous driving, three-dimensional and projector-beam displays and a range of 1,000 kilometers.
