OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
Stuttgart, Feb 22, 2010


  • A reinterpretation of the concept of “fascination and responsibility”
  • Multi drive platform enables use of two alternative drive systems – either Plug-in Hybrid or fuel cell
  • Intelligent display concept focusing on “electric driving”
  • HMI with cam touchpad for intuitive and precise operation
  • Traffic Jam Assistant for increased comfort and safety

Mercedes-Benz’ F 800 Style research vehicle is showing the future of premium automobiles from a new perspective, as the five-seat upper-range sedan combines highly efficient drive technologies with unparalleled safety and convenience features and an emotive design idiom, which interprets current Mercedes-Benz styling in line with the brand’s hallmark attribute of cultivated sportiness. The F 800 Style has a spacious interior full of intelligent seating, operating, and display concepts. Another unparalleled feature for a large sedan worldwide is an all-new multi drive platform, which is suited for electric drives with fuel cells (enabling ranges of almost 600 kilometers) as well as the use of Plug-in Hybrids that can drive for up to 30 kilometers solely on electricity. Both variants of the F 800 Style therefore make locally emission-free mobility possible at the level of a premium-class automobile, while at the same time being fully suited for everyday driving and providing a dynamic driving experience.
