And after the introduction of a six-person self-driving box A flashy drone concept last year, GM’s latest luxury self-driving EV concept is much more grounded. The InnerSpace concept From the outside it looks like a car of the future কিন্তু but inside, there’s a two-seater love seat surrounded by one of the widest screens we’ve ever seen. Of course there are no steering wheels or paddles. Instead, there is a built-in ottoman and slippers and a bogie for a blanket. Wherever GM is going, you will not need any kind of manual control.
Even stepping into a car seems like a science fiction: the door opens when the big windshield / sunroof goes up. As usual, ideas like InnerSpace are a way for car designers to flex their muscles and imagine what the cars of the future might actually look like. While this certainly seems out of reach for most people, perhaps Cadillac’s richer clients would be more interested in owning a private spaceship. At least it’s better for the environment than a full-size luxury SUV.
“Electrification and autonomous driving will fundamentally change the role of vehicles and the customer experience with them,” said Brian Nesbitt, executive director of GM at Global Advanced Design, in a statement. “We’re exploring where to go with these innovative ideas, imagining mobility as a wellness partner, the ultimate luxury for customers, giving them more personal time rather than taking it.”
For someone who hates driving, but lives in a place where I can’t avoid it, it will be interesting to see how car manufacturers make these self-driving concept vehicles a reality. And maybe after getting these wild designs through their system, they will show more ideas for our self-driving family EVs.
