Meet the hydrogen powered SUV from 2025
That looks like something out of a 90s sci-fi show
That matt grey finish does make the Mercedes Benz Ener-G-Force look like an imagined future vehicle – but that’s because it is. This design was championed by Mercedes for the LA Design Challenge to, "create a highway patrol vehicle that meets the challenges of a specific region’s transportation and societal conditions in 2025."
The Ener-G-Force? Sounds like Captain Planet's superhero team
Well, it is eco-friendly. With four motors, each powered by hydrogen cells, this G-Class inspired design can actually turn water to power on the move. And while it’s moving, a 360-degree topography scanner sees the lay of the land, allowing the fully electric suspension to adapt for the perfect ride. Plus smaller windows for protection, emergency lights and a quick access toolbox in the rear make it pretty future proofed.
So will we be seeing one anytime soon?
Although this is just a design and scale model build, there was a hint from the team that this could inform the future design of the G-Class Mercedes. So if giant 20in rims and intelligent suspension are on your Christmas list for 2025, you may just be in luck.
