    What will Mercedes designs look like in 2030? Here is a good guess - Mercedes-Benz Aria

    This is the 2030 Mercedes Aria by Slavche Tanevski. A student at the Munich Univeristy of Applied Sciences, this design was his bachelor's thesis and we are guessing he passed. He was under the direct instruction of Mercedes designers, talk about a tough crowd to impress. It is also imagined as an all electric design and it would seem by 2030 Mercedes expects most of its cars to be electrics. Check it out, it's just a dream, but a great one.

    The human mind is a unique thing!
    Really cool design, we'll have to rework a lot of parking garage ceilings and 99% of home garages.
    Those doors are like 20 feet tall.

    Thanks for sharing--I like the LEDs that's something they should implement now.

    I thought the same thing about garages.

    Wow, interesting design. I guess we've come along way from the Lebaron. haha

    I have to agree with you again about the human mind. It is said the human mind can adapt to just about anything. And I believe that's what we're doing as car designs change and progress.

    I can say I'm not yet ready for such a design. I can better understand why car manufacturers often times scale back concept car designs once the cars enter production. (Other factors include design functionality/feasability, safety, etc.)

    You have to hand it to artists though. Some of them are really ahead of their times.

    The thing with electric cars is that they have to be charged. Plugging them into your house every night will raise your electric bill up way more than you used to pay for gas. And ironically, these electric and gas companies burn more coal and fuel than we can save by taking all the cars off the road.

    Very tricky business....

    Indeed, very tricky business.

    I was reading that hybrid vehicles actually have a greater footprint than many people would think because there are more parts to be manufactured and that should be (but often isn't) factored into the environmental considerations.

    Hate to say it but the future is automated pods not cars. Sad but true, just ask Bob Lutz. By 2030 if you turn your pod off auto control (if even possible) liability will rest in your hands, not the insurance companies. Glad I was born when I was, the future looks like $#@! for car guys.

    I have to disagree that is not talent.
