It is obvious that the Mercedes F 015 represents the vision of a new vehicle concept just from its unusual proportions (length/width/height: 5220/2018/1524 mm), its seamless, monolithic exterior and its large LED light modules at the front and rear. The concept’s low-slung front end, smooth and streamlined roof line, flat front windscreen and road-hugging rear end are purposeful to portray a dynamic all-rounder. Furthermore, the F 015 Luxury in Motion’s unusually large wheelbase of 3610 mm in combination with its short overhangs clearly show that the design focus was on providing the maximum possible space for the passengers.
In the interior of the Mercedes F 015 Luxury, the designers have created a lounge-like space with a feel-good ambience characterized by elegance, quality and lightness. Sensual, flowing transitions and warm, organic materials such as open-pore walnut wood shaped into a three-dimensional veneer, and extremely soft ice white nappa leather contrast with clearly-defined metal and glass surfaces with a cool and technical feel.
What’s more interesting inside the Mercedes F 015 Luxury is the variable seating system, featuring four rotating lounge chairs that allow a face-to-face seat configuration. In order to make getting in and out of the car easier, the electrically powered seats also swing outwards by 30 degrees as soon as the doors are opened. If necessary, the driver and front-seat passenger are able to turn their eyes and attention towards the front, a prerequisite for manual driving. To this end the steering wheel extends automatically from the dashboard. Seats comprise of leather-covered cushions on lounge chairs set in curved mounts of polished aluminium and contrasting light band of blue LED lights. Other interior highlights include six integrated display screens on the instrument panel and the rear and side panels that enable connected services and particle streams to visualize the vehicle’s movement.
Like in the production variants, the Mercedes F 015 is equipped with driver assistance systems such as Distronic PLUS with Steering Assist, Stop&Go Pilot semi-autonomous traffic jam vehicle following function and Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC; just to name a few.
