Set to debut later this week at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan, the Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo concept takes the shape of a minivan with a retro-flavored design that aims to focus on simplicity while remaining elegant at the same time. It’s being described by the German marque as an “autonomous, luxurious and progressive” concept which means that it will be a driverless minivan with a lavish interior and packed with the latest technologies.

Technical specifications are scarce at this point, but you will notice that it has very short front and rear overhangs as the engineers wanted to make the wheelbase as long as possible while keeping the concept’s size compact. This arrangement will ensure a very spacious interior that will probably be able to host up to seven people in utmost comfort. Access inside the cabin will be granted by the sliding rear doors which will open up from the middle, so getting in and out should be very easy.

There’s no word about what powers this mysterious concept but it could have something to do with the F015 Luxury in Motion concept that utilized a plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric setup boasting two electric motors that generated a combined output of 268 bhp and 398 Nm of torque, offering a maximum range before recharge of up to 1,100 km.

We will have all the juicy details about the Mercedes-Benz Vision Tokyo concept on Thursday during the press day of the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. As with the aforementioned Luxury in Motion concept, it’s unlikely the minivan teased here will reach the assembly line in the foreseeable future, but nevertheless it’s still interesting to see what the experts at Mercedes are thinking of when it comes down to the future of the automotive industry which seems that it will focus on autonomous, alternatively-powered cars.
