Mercedes pushes to extremes with a concept van coming to this year's Tokyo Motor Show.
In a market all-but owned by Japanese domestic manufacturers, foreign makers have largely ignored the Tokyo Motor Show in recent years. But Mercedes-Benz has decided to weigh in this time with a concept vehicle it calls, “a vision for future generations.”
A quick look at the accompanying teaser would suggest it’s just a minivan, but knowing Mercedes, we can expect a lot more than just a roomy interior, and will likely see the German maker pick up some of the themes it has touched on in recent times with other concepts such as the F 015 Luxury in Motion and the Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile, or IAA, revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month.
What a Concept!
That is likely to translate into some intriguing new technologies, perhaps in terms of autonomous driving, but the Tokyo concept might also feature an advanced infotainment system, as well as an alternative powertrain.
