Mercedes-Benz Aria Concept

Article by Christian A., on May 18, 2011

Automakers as well as individuals have taken roles to shape the future of green mass transportation. For instance, a student came up with the Mercedes-Benz Aria Concept "Swan Wing" design study.

Slavche Tanevski is a 23 year-old Macedonian design student at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich, Germany.

He wanted to envision the luxurious mobility of 2030 by imagining the appearance of an electric-drive Mercedes-Benz. Aria’s lines are inspired by the woman's body, violin, and Coke-Bottle. It also features the flying hair and the aero pins, which define the tail volume.

Alexander's helmet was used as a reference for its front design. But then, the traditional Mercedes-Benz grille is also indicated here, albeit in a subtle manner.

Tanveski said that this vehicle is fitted with wheel hub electric engines, which means that the air intakes are attached to the sides rather than at the center.

The traditional Benz nose, which is like an arrow, is retained to shift the air’s direction. Supporting the fascia form ensemble are two shovel-formed blades that divide the air and guide them to the E-engines and brakes respectively.

He said that the roofline is similar to that of a coupe-like. And for an improved flow appearance, it is subjunctively integrated in the body. Its character line is positioned very low and is a “quotation of the Mercedes 500K Special roadster.” The wheels stand for the electric drivetrain. They feature a five-spoke configuration, and copper wires keep them secure.

The Mercedes-Benz logo is drawn outside and since it doesn’t rotate when the car moves, it seems to be floating. Aria’s interior is not welded to the exterior but is instead wired to the copper skeleton. This means that it’s easy to interchange. The system is inspired by a cradle and gives passengers a flying sensation.
