Mercedes Concept represents IAA


Active aerodynamics in combination with a plug-in hybrid vehicle – a Mercedes somehow represents their future. Convince us about a futuristic Concept IAA , where she stands is not fair to the world, but the link Intelligent Automobile Aerodynamic .

Three-pointed star has already in its portfolio one of the aerodynamically most efficient models – compact CLA boasts a drag coefficient Cx=0.23. Concept IAA but goes further and thanks to extendable aerodynamic elements , which happens automatically at speeds above 80 km / h, has a coefficient Cx at 0.19! Perhaps the most interesting “actively aerodynamic proprieties” is a rear of the Eightfold , increasing operational duration of up to 390 mm. Part of the front bumper, flanked by the flaps, on the contrary, moves backward about 60 mm. There is also a special round Active Rims .

But it is not only about active aerodynamics, because the designers have won enough even with fixed elements 5040 mm long (5430 mm wind mode), 1995 mm wide and 1305 mm high four-door coupe. Instead mirrors such as cameras, LED Light at both ends become a part of the bumper and door handles naturally lack. When you get to the interior, you will discover a surprisingly sober shapes with cream leather upholstery and aluminum respectively glass elements, borrowing much from the line S-Class series is mainly about two displays and air vents beneath them, although their růžovomodré backlight to one of the serial model will never penetrate. The biggest attraction is the many control elements through OFN system (Optical Finger Navigation), for which just over a dedicated area to make a few gestures with your fingers. At the bottom of the center console are the other two displays, one for air and one for the data on the drive unit.

It consists gasoline engine and electric motor with a combined output of 279 hp and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km / h. Purely electric range is 62 km (32 g CO2 / km), which is in wind mode improves by 4 kilometers (and 4 g CO2 / km). And since it is a plug-in hybrid batteries can be charged even from the normal socket.
