The Mercedes-Benz C350e is a plug-in hybrid sedan from the luxury automobile maker that boasts a unique vibrating pedal that provides important driving information to the driver.

The first hybrid sedan from Mercedes-Benz, the C350e boasts a haptic accelerator pedal that launches a series of vibrating pulses in order to alert the driver that the car is about to change from battery power to gas. The unique technology points to the progression of interface-free technology that instead opts for intuitive alerts like that of through touch.

Once the vibrating pulses have been deployed, the driver of the Mercedes-Benz C350e has the option of removing their foot from the accelerator pedal in order to remain on battery power mode.
