With the Superstition Mountains and the Four Peaks Wilderness Area within sight and a short drive, Phoenix Arizona is a nature lovers paradise. Not to mention that with the warm Arizona weather, Phoenix Arizona residents are free to explore and enjoy these majestic western monuments year round. When taking a journey through the wilderness, one is left to ponder the perfection of the natural environment, every element, from the dirt and roots to the leaves and the cactus wren, all come together in a beautiful and unbreakable symbiosis. This is the inspiration for the new Mercedes Benz concept car, the Biome.
The Mercedes-Benz Biome is an ultralight vehicle that utilizes technologies from nature to achieve unparalleled efficiency and seamless integration into the ecosystem, a vehicle that “grows in a completely organic environment from seeds sown in a nursery.”
“As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz Biome is a natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth’s ecosystem. It grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree” Hubert Lee, head of the Mercedes-Benz advanced design studios said.
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.
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 fully 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.
This sort of vehicle is essentially made for the Phoenix Arizona Valley. Built for the sun, just as a plant deriving energy through photosynthesis, this is the perfect car of the future for Phoenix Arizona residents.
