Mercedes F-Cell Roadster: een hommage

Mercedes F-Cell Roadster Concept
Wat gebeurt er als je de Mercedes designers een hommage laat maken aan ’s werelds eerste auto die in 1886 gebouwd werd door Carl Benz?

De Mercedes F-Cell Roadster is een hommage van Mercedes-Benz aan de eerste auto in de geschiedenis die gebouwd werd door Carl Benz in 1886. De designers kozen voor een mix tussen retro styling en vernieuwende technieken. De F-Cell Roadster krijgt een 1.2 kW (2 pk) sterke brandstofcel die emissieloos een bereik heeft van 350 km.

De F-Cell Roadster is te bedienen met een joystick via de drive-by-wire techniek. De topsnelheid van de F-Cell Roadster is 25 km/u, het is onnodig te zeggen dat deze roadster de productiefase nooit zal bereiken.

F-CELL Roadster – trainees build a car of the future 

Young people unite high tech and tradition
Alternative drive systems as a training topic
In a hitherto unique project bridging various fields of profession, the trainees of Daimler AG at the Sindelfingen Mercedes-Benz plant have built a Roadster with fuel cell drive. For about a year, more than 150 trainees and dual education system students worked on the overall concept, development, assembly, and completion of the F-CELL Roadster. This project involved junior employees from the fields of automotive mechatronics, model-building, electronics, coating technology, manufacturing mechanics, product design, and interior appointments. The prime objective of the project was to integrate the topic of alternative drive systems into training with hands-on experience.

“This project impressively demonstrates that the topic of sustainable mobility has become an integral part of our vocational training,” said Human Resources Board member and Labor Relations Manager Günther Fleig. “I am delighted to see how much initiative and creativity the young people have put into this project.”

Tradition meets the future

The F-CELL Roadster uniquely combines state-of-the-art technologies with the history of vehicle construction. As an allusion to the Benz Patent Motor Car from 1886, the vehicle is fitted with large spoked wheels. Moreover, the F-CELL Roadster incorporates stylistic elements from diverse eras of automotive history, such as the carbon-fiber bucket seats with hand-stitched leather covers and the distinctively styled fiberglass front section, based on the component from the Formula One racing bolides.

The F-CELL Roadster is controlled with drive-by-wire technology, and a joystick takes the place of a conventional steering wheel. The vehicle is powered by the emission-free fuel cell system located at the rear. With a power rating of 1.2 kW the F-CELL Roadster reaches a top speed of 25 km/h and has an operating range of up to 350 km.

    ziet er leuk uit.
    Laat hem iets sneller gaan en vergroot het bereik iets.
    En breng hem in productie!

    zeker in de 20ste eeuw ontworpen.
