In the 2011 Mercedes F125 Concept strictly follow their vision to drive emission-free hydrogen energy, highlighting the potential of H2 as an energy source for the future. Mercedes-Benz although previous research had “looked” a generation of vehicles – seven or eight years – the F125 Concept visionary art everything is a little more, for more than two generations to 2025 and beyond.
To store hydrogen as a fuel of the future, Mercedes engineers have adapted a technology that is still subject to basic research. It opens new perspectives in terms of vehicle architecture and operating range. The idea embedded in the floor has a capacity of about 7.5 kg of hydrogen. Compared to high-pressure tanks in use today, potentially H2 tank requires less installation space. This is because the resist pressure up to 700 bars needs power of thought to be cylindrical in shape, and because of the round section which is inevitable “cavity” between the tanks installed near or the other. However, the tanks can be filled at a pressure of 30 bars or less be better integrated into the bodywork. They are also capable of acting as “structural” components.
2011 Mercedes F125 Concept, the great improvement
A sophisticated, powerful lithium-sulfur is planned for 2011 Mercedes F125 Concept. It has a storage capacity of 10 kWh and is installed behind the rear seats. By combining the drive fuel cell with innovative lithium-sulfur battery provides a full range of up to 1000 km as possible, which up to 50 km can be battery power alone. It can be charged by induction “smart” charging stations, and the process of working load can be monitored by the Smartphone. In designing the F125 Concept, Developers have worked on the assumption that at the time of its introduction into mass production, this type of battery will be able to power densities of up to 350 Wh per kg. This represents approximately a doubling of current performance. The true potential of this technology is the subject of basic research, and it is still difficult to assess at this time.
2011 Mercedes F125 Concept Which is still a ratio of performance improvement, consumption and the practical applicability, the power for the four powerful electric motors mounted near the wheels, which provide data on sports performance are exceptional. Overall e4MATIC a modular system, which is also used to drive components for improved SLS AMG E-CELL, to create a continuous power 170 kW (231 hp) and peak power of 230 kW (313 hp).
This 2011 Mercedes F125 Concept speeds up to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 220 km / h. However, the NEDC fuel consumption is only 0.79 kg of hydrogen per 100 km (equivalent = 2.7 liters of diesel).
