The BIOME, in all its far-out organic glory. Future, please hurry!


Mercedes-Benz is an innovator for a long time. You can thank a German auto manufacturer to get diesel and supercharged motor on passenger cars, anti lock brakes, electronic stability systems and many more. But nothing could be a little more innovative than the BIOME thought car, unveiled at the New york Auto Show in Don’t forget national 2010. Here’s how the state press release described the passenger truck: “The Mercedes-Benz BIOME grows inside of a completely organic environment from seeds sown inside of a nursery. Out on the trail the car emits absolute oxygen, and at the ending of its lifespan it usually is simply composted or made use of as building material. inches

Engineers from the Mercedes-Benz Leading-edge Design Studios in Carlsbad, Calif., created the car included in the Los Angeles Design Task, which called for your safe and comfortable compact car into the future that could accommodate three passengers, demonstrate good handling and weigh just one, 000 pounds (454 kilograms). A BIOME represents the Mercedes-Benz eye sight. It is made out of an ultralight material called BioFibre so the finished vehicle, though wider than just a typical car, only weighs in at 876 pounds (397 kilograms). If you agree that sounds too good that they are true, then get the following: The BIOME isn’t made. It grows from two seeds — a bed that forms the interior and the other that forms the outer. The wheels germinate out of four additional seeds positioned in the nursery.

Of lessons, you won’t find the BIOME in your local Mercedes-Benz dealer. That’s because the far-out style and design is a vision into the future — a concept car that’s decades previous to its time. As these, it couldn’t exist now. But it might be as common for a Corolla after 20 and also 30 years of ground breaking thinking and inspired engineering.
