The car doesn’t have any doors, and has 33 movable, multidirectional ‘bionic flaps’ that look like scales on a reptile. These flaps can communicate with the driver and the outside world (through the driver) in subtle gestures. Acing the ‘crab movement’, the car can go sideways by approximately 30 degrees.
The Vision AVTR doesn’t have a conventional steering wheel. The vehicle comes multifunctional control element in the center console. With the help of biometric detection, the driver can place his/her hands on the control unit, and the interior will come to life. It can also detect the pulse of the people in the car, and sense their breathing.

The auto giant promises an immersive experience where users can simply lift their hands and a menu selection will be projected onto the palm of the hand. This feature will allow the passenger to choose intuitively between different functions.
Powering the Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR is a 110kWh battery pack which claims to use graphene-based organic cell chemistry that uses no rare earth materials and the EV will be capable of 470hp and have a driving range of 700kms. Additionally, it will also be able to move sideways for maximum mobility. All this seems straight from a sci-fi fantasy of course, and that because it is just a futuristic concept.
