This is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR – inspired by Avatar the Movie. Massive thanks to Mercedes and Gordon Wagener for giving this channel an exclusive look at what could be the coolest car of 2020.The team at Mercedes worked closely with the director of Avatar, James Cameron, to come up with a car that could act as your avatar in the movie. Their vision is for this to be more of a creature rather than a car.
With its four high-performance and near-wheel-built electric motors, the VISION AVTR embodies a particularly agile implementation of the vision of a dynamic luxury saloon. With a combined engine power of more than 350 kW, the VISION AVTR sets a new benchmark for EQ Power.
The innovative all-wheel drive with torque vectoring enables completely new freedoms and guarantees driving dynamics at the highest level while at the same time providing the best possible active safety. Due to the possibility to drive the front and rear axles simultaneously or in opposite ways, the VISION AVTR can move sideways by approx. 30 degrees, in contrast to conventional vehicles.
The so-called “crab movement” gives the concept vehicle a reptile-like appearance even in its movement. The holistic concept combines the design disciplines interior, exterior and UX from the first sketch. Man and human perception are the starting point of a design process from the inside out. The design process begins with the experience of the passengers and consciously focuses on the perception and needs of the passengers.
