Mercedes Biome concept
Bit of a fantasy this. OK, a complete fantasy, but hey, its environmentally friendly so it ticks our box.
Conceived as part of the LA Motor Show design competition, the Merc Biome has a fully fictional backstory - it's grown in a nursery, the wheels and interior options are developed from seeds planted in the three-pointed star, it's compostable, releases pure oxygen and weighs under 1,000lbs. Exists in a universe we haven't discovered yet, much like its designer. Enjoyably ridiculous, but will never get made. NEXT.
