Mercedes Future Truck 2025 autonomously driving truck premiere - Autogefühl
Here we are showing you some impressions of the Mercedes Future Truck 2025
concept, an autonomously driving truck which now had its premiere. Showing
you driving, exterior, interior as well as special situations the truck has
to react to.
More information from Mercedes:
Efficiency, safety and connectivity– the Future Truck 2025 revolutionises
the key elements of goods transport
Future Truck 2025 – Perfect synthesis of technology and design
Daimler Trucks strengthens technological leadership
Blind Spot Assist important step to accident-free driving
Daimler Trucks invests 1 bln. Euro per year into research and development
Dr Wolfgang Bernhard: "Our Future Truck 2025 provides compelling answers to
the challenges that our customers will be facing in the future. Our aim
therefore is to press forward with readying this technology for the market
and to bring it to series-production standard. I am convinced that this
will open up a whole new business perspective for Daimler Trucks."
The technology of tomorrow is already a reality at Daimler Trucks, in the
shape of the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. The autonomously driving
truck was presented on the eve of the 65th International Motor Show for
commercial vehicles in Hanover, Germany. Its perfect synthesis of
technology and design means: The Future Truck 2025 is more than simply a
new truck; it is a key component of the transport system of the future. For
the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is sparing on resources, reduces
emissions of all types, ensures maximum road traffic safety and increases
the level of networking in road transport. Goods traffic in the future will
be safer, more efficient and more connected as a result. The Future Truck
2025 thus marks a revolution for road traffic and its infrastructure, the
truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.
Mercedes S-Class Coupe Concept INTERIOR
The white instrument panel exudes sensual clarity. Its curved shape is
reminiscent of a whale fluke just before it re-enters the water. Like the
entire interior it is dominated by flowing lines: the upper and lower wave
create a clear structure.
The upper section of the instrument panel seems to float sensually in front
of the dashboard as a so-called top layer. The instrument panel seamlessly
transitions into the doors in a wrap-around design. The wavelike motion
continues in the door panels.
The ventilation nozzles, which among other places are housed as a
four-piece cluster in the centre of the instrument panel, have a futuristic
and highly detailed design: fins that route the air stream surround an
oblong hole. The ventilation nozzles are designed to add contrasts and are
made of a mix of white aluminium with a ceramics-like appearance and
brushed and polished aluminium.
The aluminium control elements have a functional and clean design, and
provide an exciting contrast to the organic and avant-garde shapes that
On top of the free-form surface under a reduced hood are the 30.7-cm
(12.3-inch) screens familiar from the new S-Class. They have an aspect
ratio of 8:3. In the Concept S-Class Coupé the fully glazed colour
displays are even slimmer and seem to float even more freely. As high-tech
elements they offer an exciting contrast to the sensual landscape of the
instrument panel. The colour scheme of the displays is bluish and
consequently sporty and modern.
A touch screen showing four world clocks is located on the centre console.
The driver can choose which clocks to display: To do so, the driver first
scrolls on a globe in the display and selects a time zone before a
drop-down menu offers the corresponding city selections. The world clock
concept was designed and implemented by designers and engineers at the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Center in Palo Alto, California, USA.
The central command unit on the centre console looks like a shiny jewel.
Its extremely high-quality "black diamond" surface creates depth of field.
The "black diamond" method uses the chemical CVD (chemical vapour
deposition) gas phase process to deposit a precious metal on a high-sheen
chrome surface at temperatures of 1000°C. The metal reacts with the
surface to form a layer that is highly scratch-resistant and has a high
The door panels of the Concept S-Class Coupé are made from aluminium.
Using computer algorithms delicate topographic lines were milled into the
metal and mimic the contours of the door-mounted control elements. This
creates an interesting light pattern with tiny sparkling highlights. For
this creation the designers drew their inspiration from rock formations in
Utah, USA. The progressive perforations of the loudspeakers were also
generated using algorithms and display some intelligent aesthetics of
Like the entire interior the seats have a highly dynamic and natural "flow
of lines" and continue the sculpted design of the shapes. The front seats
evoke associations of haute-couture tailoring because their sculpted shape
embodies sensual lines reminiscent of figurines in fashion design. In the
upper section of the seat the side bolsters envelope the occupant like a
collar. The vertical lines of the seats come courtesy of an array of
delicate piping. Piping on the side bolsters provides contrast and like the
perforation of the seat surfaces is a factor in the sporty-elegant
The choice of colours and materials plays with the extroverted contrasts of
anthracite and white as well as aluminium, and bolsters both the timeless
modernity and avant-garde nature of the design and the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé to ultimate exclusivity, high quality and perfection. In
this spirit the instrument panel and seats are made from supple calfskin.
The roofliner of the vehicle is made from hand-woven silk and consequently
underscores the exclusive character of the interior.
