In an effort to poll public opinion on a possible new body type, Mercedes developed the Concept A Sedan, & will be displaying it at Shanghai Auto Show. The idea behind the Concept A, according to Mercedes Chief Design Officer, is that “the time of creases is over”. I really hope he is wrong.
The part that worries me the most is that it would probably sell. Recently, it seems as if playing it safe is a tune that a great deal of car buyers are singing these days. It looks “futuristic”, does not ruffle any feathers & even has a Mercedes logo on the front, where do i sign up? It used to be that safety regulations & standards suppressed creativity, now it looks like manufacturers are doing it all on their own.
