Mercedes-Benz has unveiled their latest concept car, the solar-powered Vision G-Code concept. The concept vehicle was shown at the opening of Mercedes’ new Research and Development center in Beijing. The concept looks like a sports utility coupe and is 161 inches shorter than the GLA. But the Vision G-Code still sports a handful of impressive features, including multi-voltaic silver paint that turns the entire body into one big solar panel.

The special paint of the G-Code also fuels the electric portion of the hybrid powertrain, offering all-wheel drive or pure electric drive. The car sports a holographic grille in the front that indicates what mode the vehicle is in, with LED headlights in the front, and also has another strip of LEDs in the back. The G-Code also has hidden tiny cameras that pop out for use as rear-view mirrors. Oddly enough though, the G-Code comes equipped with an F-1-esque steering wheel. Still, this concept car gives us a great idea as to what direction Mercedes Benz is going.
