Mercedes-Benz introduced electric autonomous car with removable bodiesSeptember 10, 2018
The German company presented its vision of a modern city car. This is an electric drone-transformer, which can equally successfully carry both people and cargo. Such multifunctionality is provided by interchangeable bodies. Add to this a bold futuristic design and you will get a car of the future.
The company Mercedes-Benz Vans introduced a revolutionary concept, which has every chance to make a real revolution in the field of passenger transportation and logistics. The unmanned prototype Vision Urbanetic made its debut at a special event in Copenhagen. In the capital of Denmark, Mercedes-Benz showed a bright and avant-garde drone-transformer, which, in addition to autonomous management, received an electric power unit and two interchangeable bodies.
Both modules installed on the mobile platform can be used depending on the current needs.
So, as a passenger transport concept car with comfort will take to the destination of 12 people, and in cargo performance is able to easily transport at once ten standard size pallets. The total length of the concept of electric drone exceeds five meters, the length of the “cargo compartment” is 3.70 meters.
Instead of the traditional radiator grille, the prototype receives a large display, which broadcasts a variety of information intended for all road users. Similar information boards are placed on the sides of the UAV.
Recall earlier in Israel showed a folding electric car, which is placed in a passenger elevator.
