The F125 is the latest concept to be showcased by Mercedes, taking centre stage at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Billed as a ‘trailblazing concept for large, luxurious automobiles’, the F125 concept is hydrogen powered and is linked to an advanced fuel cell claimed to produce more performance than the most powerful S-class in the current model line-up.
And it’s claimed to be frugal too. Mercedes is saying it will have an emissions-free range of 1,000km – that’s six-times the range claim of the 100-mile-per-charge full-electric Nissan Leaf.
Mercedes has strictly stated that the F125 is purely being used as an exercise to look into future technical developments in the luxury segment, so don’t expect this to be in the model line-up anytime soon.
