The LA Auto Show’s Design Challenge brings out the best in all its participants. That truth is clearly demonstrated with one of the entries from Mercedes-Benz, a law enforcement themed giant four-wheeled monster known officially as Ener-G-Force. California’s Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio came up with the concept cruiser, and there are plenty of touches to wow the crowds at this year’s show. The hydrogen-powered gladiator features emergency lights on the roof, but they look more like laser guns. The entire effect is so science-fictional that you will find yourself staring at the video clip photomontage below and wondering, hoping actually, that the Mercedes-Benz G-Class goes in this direction.
In the video clip below, you will see a montage of views of the Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force. Looking like a cross between a rugged spaceship and a luxury sedan on steroids, the newest concept car from M-B is unusually alluring and unique. Concept cars come and go, but you will likely agree that this one is definitely going places. The downside is that we are not sure how Mercedes-Benz will use all the amazing design innovation, or where it will end up. Part SUV from deep space, part hovercraft, and part tank, the Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force is a concept car that people will be talking about for a long time.
A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz described the new concept in two words, “modern and cool.” That pretty much sums it up. In fact, the designers were hoping to evoke the look of what an off-road M-B might look like in the year 2025. A company press release referred to the Ener-G-Force as a study for a highway patrol vehicle two decades in the future. The hydrogen-propelled, super-SUV would be the perfect first-responder for the Brave New World.
