What the designers and engineers achieve in research vehicles reaches far into the future – but some features soon end up in series production vehicles. At Mercedes-Benz, we work on the basis that new technologies should be made accessible, drivable and appraisable. In this way, they fulfil their purpose of providing findings on the car of tomorrow. This is also the purpose of the research vehicles. They are designed and developed in order to bring into motion automotive visions and to test new vehicle concepts and technologies. They also serve to intensify the dialogue with customers and to analyse the reactions of the general public to such automotive ideas.
The aim is, of course, to later integrate these visionary ideas into series production vehicles. Here you can take a look at the series of Mercedes-Benz research vehicles.
