2012 LA: Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force Concept is more than just a design challenge

On the eve of the 2012 LA Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz is showing us what it came up with for this year’s Los Angeles Design Challenge. The challenge for this year’s 2012 LA Design Challenge was to create concept for a future police vehicle that is large, efficient and handles all types of terrain.

Of course, for Mercedes-Benz that means the G-Class is the first thing that comes to mind for the designers and engineers at the brand. For years, the G-Class has been regarded as one of the best off-roading SUVs, but this time around we’re getting to see the future of the model has in store in terms of capability, design and efficiency.

“Of course we wanted to take a clear step forward, but we also wanted the G’s characteristic features.”  said Ener-G-Force Designer Hubert Lee.

“The Ener-G-Force is the vision of an off-roader that, while reflecting tomorrow’s adventures, also invokes the genes of the Mercedes-Benz off-road icon, the G-Class,” said Gorden Wagener, Director of Design at Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Modern and cool, it could also be a clue about a new beginning for the off-road design idiom of Mercedes-Benz.”
