You might look at the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion concept and say to yourself: “That’s not a car.”
Before you do, we urge you to stop and consider things. It could be that in the future, you’ll look at any vehicle from the 2010s and say to yourself: “That’s not a car, not anymore.” While you have to actually get behind the wheel of an automobile now, in the future you probably won’t.
The car you drive now doesn’t have seats that can turn to face each other, but the car you drive in the future might.
Your car isn’t a “digital arena.” It doesn’t have six display screens, controlled via touch and gesture, but the car of the future might.
We still don’t know what will power your car in the future. It could be a battery. It could be a fuel cell. It could be some combination. It could be something we haven’t yet conceived. Whatever it is, the F 015 could run on it.
You might look at the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion, ask what it’s called, and then say to yourself: “That’s no name for a car.” Well, we can’t really rebut you there, but that’s why it’s a concept vehicle. Keep an open mind, though. In the future, this car might be able to explain itself. Who knows what it’s capable of?
