The Mercedes-Benz F800 Style is a concept car made by the German brand Mercedes-Benz at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. It was a preview to the Mercedes-Benz CLS.[1]

Overview[edit]

The F800 is a 5-seat executive saloon that is powered by efficient drive technologies and expresses the new design language of Mercedes-Benz, the one that should feature in the brand's future models. It features a multi drive platform, which is suited for electric drives with fuel cells as well as the use of plug-in hybrids. Long wheelbase, short body overhangs, a coupe-like roof line and the rear sliding doors are the main features of the F800 research vehicle.[2] The front of the car is very similar to the SLS AMG model.

Engine and Drivetrain[edit]

F800 Style Plug-in Hybrid

Powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, the plug-in hybrid version of the concept vehicle has an output of 296 bhp (221 kW; 300 PS). It features the next-generation direct injection and a hybrid module with an output of about 107 bhp (80 kW; 108 PS), delivering a total power of around 403 bhp (301 kW; 409 PS).[3]

The F800 Style has a drive range of 30 kilometres solely on electric power thanks to the lithium-ion battery with a storage capacity of >10 kWh. The battery can be recharged either at a charging station or a household power socket.

The F800 Style is able to reach a top speed of 250 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. In the electric mode the concept reaches a maximum speed of 120 km/h.

F800 Style F-CELL

The F800 Style can also be driven using an electric drive based on fuel cell technology. This version has a maximum power output of 100 kW (136 PS; 134 bhp) and a torque of 290 N⋅m (214 lb⋅ft). The concept car is able to reach a maximum speed of 180 km/h (111.8 mph) (electronically limited). The use of the fuel cell technology gives the car a range of almost 600 kilometres, with 5.2 kilograms of hydrogen.
