Mercedes-Benz showcased the future of sustainable mobility at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 in Las Vegas with the Vision AVTR. The idea of the concept, based on the James Cameron movie Avatar, is to connect humans, machines and nature. It was showcased at the CES 2020.
The concept vehicle uses a battery technology developed with graphene-based organic cell chemistry that is completely free of rare earth metals. The materials of the battery are compostable and therefore completely recyclable.
The Vision AVTR has the design disciplines of the interior, exterior and UX on an unprecedented scale. Mercedes-Benz says that it is a design inspired by nature and characterizes the appearance of the concept vehicle. This is evident in the sporty 'one-bow' design that merges with spherically-pronounced wheelhouses. A total of 33 multi-directionally movable flaps – the bionic flaps – on the back of the vehicle enable a completely new interaction of the Vision AVTR with its surroundings. The interior of the Vision AVTR becomes an immersive experience space.
