Mercedes-Benz Eco-friendly SUV concept

Car manufacturers today are competing to create a car that is not only comfortable and luxurious but also pay attention to the environmental aspects of the car so they can be referred to as eco-friendly cars, Mercedes-Benz is no exception.

Vision G-Code is a Hybrid SUV concept car of Mercedes-Benz which not only looks cool but is also environmentally friendly and full of innovation.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision G-Code concept car has multi-voltaic silver paint that harvests solar and wind energy. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1Ej56ux)
The first is most interesting here is part of the paint that is gray (silver), which uses a technology called "multi-voltaic silver" paint which can be regarded as a substitute for solar cell, which means it can accommodate sunlight and then convert it into the power source.
The G-Code also recovers energy from the motion of the suspension. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1Ej56ux)
Secondly, this car also can store electrical energy from wind power (wind harvesting) whereby when a car drove or even inside while it parked and exposed to air, it will automatically change the wind into electrical energy, the way it works is similar to wind turbines but did here no visible propeller.
The G-Code features LED headlights and the grille is illuminated with colored lighting depending on what mode the car is in. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1Ej56ux)
Third, even a modern car suspension parts can contribute to electrical energy for every movement in the suspension of the car it will produce electrical energy. This is not new and is included in the Kinetic technology and we've been discussing GenShock ie the shock absorber that can generate electricity.
The G-Code is started using a smartphone app and a head-up display provides driver information. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1Ej56ux)
Vision G-Code SUV has 3 modes of driving which is the maximum efficiency that promises maximum savings by utilizing existing electrical machines, maximum driving comfort and sports performance.
The G-Code seats monitor health and have built-in heating, cooling and massage functions. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1Ej56ux)
This car also has 3 options in terms of the movement of the wheels that we can choose whether the front wheel that works, rear-wheel drive or front-rear wheel that works (4-wheel drive).
The G-Code has different driving modes for maximum efficiency, for maximum driving comfort or for sports performance. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1Ej56ux)
Last is perhaps most interesting to see is the front grille of this car which has colored LED lights that indicate in what mode the car is running such as fashion Max. Efficiency is selected the LED light will turn blue, purple will comfort mode while the red sports performance.
Not just the colors alone but the LED light will move varies according to the driving mode selected. Are you interested to have it? Be patient, It's still a concept so do not know when it will be sold or not even know if it could be produced or not. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG]
