The Biome:

mercedes benz biome 10 01

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome.

Mercedes-Benz Symbiosis:
Mercedes-Benz Symbiosis is a system in which the vehicle becomes part of the ecosystem like the leaves of a tree. Symbiosis vehicles collect energy from the sun and store it in chemical bonds, in the form of a fluid called BioNectar4534. Mercedes has also developed technology to retrofit trees with receptors which can harvest their excess solar energy into BN4534. This creates an incentive to plant more trees and collect more energy, while also helping the ecosystem. The vehicle can be composted after its lifespan is complete or used as building material.

Partnership With Nature:
The Symbiosis vehicle forms a seamless part of the ecosystem through green technologies. Most of the energy used to power the vehicles comes from the sun. It is stored in a lightweight grown material called BioFibre. It is much lighter than metal or synthetic composites, but stronger than steel when mature. It is grown in the Mercedes-Benz Nursery through proprietary DNA. The customer’s specific desires are genetically engineered into the Star and the vehicle grows when this combines with the Seed capsule.

Mercedes-Benz Nursery:
All Mercedes-Benz Symbiosis vehicles are grown in an ecologically sustainable nursery, using primarily organic materials.

Growth from Two Seeds:
The interior of the Biome grows from Mercedes-Benz DNA in the front star, when it fuses with the seed. The exterior grows from the rear star, creating the shape. The wheels are grown separately from four unique seeds.

Technologies from Nature:
Mercedes Benz Symbiosis vehicles release pure oxygen into the environment, helping urban areas to meet air quality standards.

Ricky Wu2368 days ago

how much of this car?

epi2368 days ago

such car looks like impossible to be happening in reality! or maybe so, around year 2100 at least. and the interior doesn't look comfortable at all. a one seater maybe...

nick2368 days ago

There's room for four-passengers inside, or so we're told, and the seating position is in a diamond format.

this car will change the complete aspect of mercedes-benz. i love the images and how it gives the whole idea in the pictures now to see the car would be something else

Jordan2368 days ago

So does it actually have an engine, or does it power itself and require no engine or transmission or any of that kind of stuff? All inall a very nice concept, I would love to own one.

BanBan2367 days ago

Very smart. Futuristic. I love the way they design it. But how it move? I does not see any wheel. Or maybe it floating.

Lloyd2244 days ago

yeah, it's cool but when will we start seeing these things in real life!

christian1763 days ago

many people said about this car but this car is can be in real, but design is pretty good. i impressed that lines.

Joshua1452 days ago

I hope everyone knows the physical version of this car is a large, plastic shell with no engine or controls. This is a design idea; it is science fiction, at the moment. There is no current ability to harvest liquid fuel from trees, no tires currently grown from seeds, and there is currently no completely organic, pure-oxygen emitting engine grown in a lab. So, in short, this car doesn't really exist (outside of it's big showroom, unpowered model).
