The New S-Class | High-Tech for Maximum Comfort

Up to 19 motors in the front seats make for comfortable seating – a number that indicates the complexity of the technology installed in the seats.

Why Don't Solar Powered Cars Exist?

Solar power is abundant and readily available, so why don't cars use it?

With electric cars becoming more popular and a shift towards renewable energy sources is taking place, an obvious question becomes: why don't we simply put solar panels on top of cars? Could this help with the lack of charging infrastructure? Realistically, what would it take for solar powered cars to work out, and why haven't they been successful up until this point?

This video will analyze the surface area of a modern car, providing an estimate for how much solar power it could actually generate, what speeds the cars could be capable of, and how long the cars would take to charge. We'll take into consideration the solar constant, the amount of solar power that actually reaches Earth's surface, the efficiency limits of solar panels, the curvature of the Earth (it isn't flat), and analyze how this impacts a solar car's performance. We'll also check out Aptera Motors, who's planning to make a car that will never need to charge, thanks to solar panels!

The New S-Class | Alien Car Meets Pure Luxury

The previously optional MULTIBEAM LED is now the standard headlamp for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

As well as variable control of low and high beam, it also features Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus. The optional DIGITAL LIGHT system enters series production for the first time at Mercedes-Benz. This allows completely new functions, e.g., the projection of guidelines or warning symbols onto the road ahead.

In the MULTIBEAM LED headlamp, a light module with 84 LEDs arranged in three lines creates a grid in the form of a matrix. With this arrangement, not only the light distribution of the high beam but also that of the low beam is freely configurable and technically precise. MULTIBEAM LED therefore allows different light functions to actuate independently.
