Mercedes Synergy Concept Gets Weird Doors
The Mercedes Synergy concept from designer Sylvain Wehnert was created with the aim of combining the environment and the emotions. To meet these requirements, the design has gone bionic, with special emphasis on vertebrates. It has a frame that resembles the spinal frame of vertebrate animals, and to this suspension are attached the fuel cells, wheels, suspension and the seat controls.
Powered by fuel cells, the concept has a special arrangement to hold two tanks of hydrogen in the concept’s central tube that is analogous to the spinal cord of vertebrates. The queer designing of the concept allows for “a new type of doors.” These sliding doors go beneath the car to open, which we’d guess looks like the exact opposite of gullwings.
