Mercedes to Bring Concept BlueZero to Detroit
The E-Cell is a fully electric model which comes under the form of a five-door compact car, being equipped with lithium-ion batteries capable of providing an estimated range of approximately 100 km (62 miles). A two-hour recharge should be enough to restore the batteries, German publication Auto Motor und Sport informed.
The other two versions, the BlueZero F-Cell and BlueZero E-Plus, are based on smart fortwo's turbocharged three-cylinder engine but still connected to lithium-ion batteries. Similar to other hybrids on the market, the gasoline engine is used to recharge the batteries while in motion, as well as during braking, using kinetic energy. These two variants could travel up to 600 km (373 miles).
The car interior is quite eye-catching as it really gives the vehicle that “came from the future” feeling inspired by the exterior. As you can see in the adjacent photos, the interior uses an eye candy green color which perfectly matches the colors used on the exterior.
You might also notice that details are pretty limited for the time being, but keep your eyes skinned on autoevolution and we promise to bring new information as soon as they're provided.
