Your future avatar creature within Mercedes-Benz vision concept

Imagining the future is certainly very pleasant especially when associated with some kind of advanced technologies. The following is the result of the development of Mercedes-Benz in the form of a sophisticated future concept vehicle called the Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR (and AVTR is short for Advanced Vehicle Transformation, a technology that improves driver connectivity with the environment and the car itself.)

This latest concept car from Mercedes-Benz made its debut at the CES 2020 in Las Vegas on January 6, 2020. This is a new wild car concept inspired by the Avatar, a James Cameron's movie in 2009. And certainly, this car is not a sequel promised by Cameron instead it's a show car is the result of a partnership between Mercedes-Benz and James Cameron's film franchise.

The Vision AVTR is part of the concept art of the Avatar story sequel and becomes the movie's climax. And here's a collaboration result of the Mercedes-Benz's design team under Ola Kallenius with James Cameron finally made the design look more real. That was part of the initiation of ambition for a future car in 2039, where that year all vehicles would be free from carbon pollution. Included in the manufacture or production process of course.

Mercedes-Benz says it all starts with an "inside-out design structure" that combines the interior and exterior of the car into an "emotional whole." The general shape is your typical futuristic soap bar, with a flashing badge and radiant spokes on the wheel. The car has no doors, and behind it, the Vision AVTR has 33 multidirectional movable "bionic" flaps that are intended to look like scales on reptiles which according to the company can be used to communicate with people outside the car.

It also has a special ball wheel that Mercedes-Benz says is inspired by the "Seed of the Soul Tree" from the 2009 Avatar movie. This wheel can spin so that the Vision AVTR can move sideways, or even diagonally.

It is not very clear how, but this should supply vehicles with energy, along with giving drivers and passengers an extraordinary view of the outside world. This projection is then displayed on a large screen on the front of the vehicle, which has a kind of triangular design.

When you sit in the Vision AVTR, the car will detect your pulse and can feel your breathing well. Mercedes said this biometric connection is an integral part of how the concept operates; that wanted to combine passengers and cars into a kind of "symbiotic organism." The pulsed control pad on the console is where you put your hand when entering the car, and this is where you will set all the key functions of the vehicle.
The big theme of this concept is sustainability. The seat is made of vegan material; the floor is made of a type of wood called 'Karuun' or commonly known as Rattan, which grows as a natural raw material, harvested by hand in Indonesia.

The Vision AVTR concept powered by four electric motors installed near the wheels, it has about 476 horsepower, all-wheel-drive, and torque vectoring, but it's the 110 kW battery that's truly revolutionary due to it made from graphene-based organic cell chemistry, which is completely free of rare earth and metals.
What does all this mean for the future of Mercedes-Benz? A little hard to say. There are many forward-thinking concepts and technologies incorporated into this performance car, but actually, it is lacking as a vision of the future of German carmakers and more than a one-time creation with the Avatar in mind. Either way, it must be something that could come from James Cameron's mind. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE VERGE | ROADSHOW | ELECTRIC CARS REPORT | AUTOEVOLUTION]
