The new Mercedes-Benz Vision Concept is causing quite a stir. This sleek multi-purpose vehicle looks like its straight out of the future, with a contoured silhouette and metallic exterior. Though little is known about this model, we can’t wait to see how it performs.
According to Carscoops, the Vision made its premier at the Tokyo Motor Show, taking the form of a high-tech minivan. Described as “autonomous, luxurious, and progressive” and
a vision for future generations” by Mercedes-Benz. This car will have the latest in automotive technologies.

This autonomous van concept is truly one of a kind, made to work as a passenger vehicle, not commercial. Not only is the design progressive, but under the hood this model is a plug-in hybrid set-up with a lithium-ion battery, hydrogen fuel cell, and electric motor powertrain.
The exterior is somewhat reminiscent of old Citroen concept vans, but we like to think it also takes design cues from the DMC DeLorean from “Back to the Future.” We’re excited to see how this model performs on the actual road.
Who knows, maybe if you accelerate to just the right speed something spectacular could happen.
Going to the future is what we mean by that, in case you missed it.
