Mercedes Benz has always been on the cutting edge of transportation and their taking it one step further here at CES in Las Vegas with the concept vision AVTR.
This is a concept that's been inspired by Jane Cameron hit movie Avatar Now abt R stands for advanced vehicle transformation and we've got a whole interview with James Cameron and my venerable boss Tim Stevens on a separate video.
So if you want to learn more about the design, be sure to check that out.
I just want to talk about some of the technical aspects of this concept.
Now, if you couldn't tell It's an electric vehicle.
The name of the game here is sustainability.
And there is 110 kilowatt-hour battery features graphene based chemistry and there are no rare earth metals used at all.
It can store enough power for about 470 miles on a charge and it can charge fully in 15 minutes.
But here is the cool part, the battery is completely compostable and recyclable.
And as you know the battery technology that we have now once they're finished, they go right into a landfill so this is definitely a step up.
The vision AVTR has gotten electric motor on each wheel for 469 horsepower and can we talk about these light up wheels I have never wanted something from a concept car to come to life more than this.
They are awesome.
Further the concept vehicle features both front and rear steering and they consider parallel or opposite of each other so essentially this car can move sideways and about 30 degrees easy parking anyone no we won't see the sequel to avatar until December of 2021 and even then you won't see the vision AB T.
R. concept in the movie itself.
Instead, what we have here is a concept that reflects Mercedes Benz vision for the distant future.
