Mercedes-Benz G-Code Concept

With the LA Auto Show a couple of weeks away, Mercedes-Benz has let the cat out of the bag on a concept car dubbed the “G-Code.” While it’s not designed to be indicative of any specific upcoming models, the Mercedes-Benz G-Code is a showcase of potential technology and design elements for future vehicles.

Somewhere between hatchback and CUV, the G-Code has a futuristic body design with smooth and sleek contours. While it’s a small vehicle, it still rides on large 21-inch wheels, which are certainly more about looks than fuel efficiency or ride. Mercedes envisions a hybrid drivetrain for the G-Code, which includes the ability to switch dynamically between front, rear and all-wheel drive modes.

High-tech features include a paint finish capable of capturing solar and electrostatic energy (from the wind), as well as an LED backlit grille which can change colors based on the current driving mode – and presumably at the whim of the driver.

The G-Code concept will make its in-person premiere during the LA Auto Show, which opens to the media November 18 to 20, and from November 21 to 30 for the public.
