Mercedes F125, the Fuel-Cell Hybrid From the Year 2025 [PICS]

Recommended Posts


You might think this Mercedes F125 is an outlandish car, and you’d be right. The combination hydrogen fuel-cell and plug-in hybrid electric car is Mercedes-Benz’s vision of what cars might be like in the year 2025, when fuel is scarce, fuel-cell power is practical, and batteries last a whole lot longer than they do now.

So what’s in store for the future? If this design concept is any indication, cars will be made of ultralight materials such as carbon fiber and as-yet-unheard-of plastics, and each wheel will have its own electric motor on board. Not only will you be able to fill ‘er up with hydrogen and run 620 miles on its fuel cells, but it will let you plug it into a power outlet for a quick recharge when you park it in your garage.

This futuristic tech is showcased in what Mercedes calls a “rolling laboratory,” where ideas and innovations are tested and demonstrated at car shows, such as the Frankfurt Motor Show that started Thursday.

We’re just wondering why they didn’t mount a Mr. Fusion in the back, for the ultimate power plant. However, the car’s tame but practical top speed of 137mph and 0-to-62 acceleration time of 4.9 seconds will certainly be able to go faster than 88mph, easily accommodating all your time-travel needs.
