Mercedes F-Cell Roadster looks like an electric carriage

Posted on Thursday, March 26 2009 @ 00:05:20 CET by


Daimler presented a new Mercedes Benz concept that reminds me a bit of those old horse carriages - but with a lot of modern technology applied to it. Instead of horse power, this retro design uses a 1.2kW hybrid motor, it has a fiberglass front section and instead of a wheel it has a joystick. It's not much faster than a bike though, the top speed is only 15mph (about 24km/h) but the operating range is 217 miles (almost 350km).
As for who was responsible for creating the unique F-CELL Roadster, that honor goes to the trainees of of Daimler AG at the Sindelfingen plant, with more than 150 trainees and dual education system students working for about a year on the overall concept, development, assembly, and completion of the hybrid model. According to Human Resources Board member and Labor Relations Manager G√ľnther Fleig: "This project impressively demonstrates that the topic of sustainable mobility has become an integral part of our vocational training. I am delighted to see how much initiative and creativity the young people have put into this project."
