Mercedes-Benz is taking three ‘Concept BlueZero’ vehicles to the Detroit Auto Show next month with each highlighting the German automaker’s plan for low to no emission motoring in the future.

The first concept is the BlueZero E-Cell, an all-electric compact five-door equipped with lithium ion batteries that have a range of 100 km (62 miles) on a two-hour charge.

The two other concepts include the BlueZero F-Cell, a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, and the BlueZero E-Plus, which uses the Smart ForTwo’s turbocharged three-cylinder engine to charge a lithium ion battery pack creating an extended range electric vehicle, that can travel for 600 km.

The design of the E-Cell may also be a strong indication of what the next generation of Mercedes A- and B-class vehicles will look like when they arrive in 2011.
