“Inspired by AVATAR”, the Mercedes Vision AVTR is a car like no other and looks like something out of a movie. The AVTR has “four high-performance and near-wheel-build electric motors” producing 350+ kW of power. One of the distinct features of the AVTR is the lack of a steering wheel. Instead, the AVTR is controlled by a joystick in the centre console. According to Mercedes-Benz, “by placing the hand on the centre console, the interior comes to life and the vehicle recognises the driver by his breathing.” The AVTR has an infotainment system like no other!

The Mercedes-Vision AVTR is currently a concept car but could go into production eventually.
