Volvo car turns into a bed and an office
    2018-09-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Volvo envisions a future where your car is a place to sleep and work while on the road.

The Swedish carmaker unveiled its latest concept car last week. Dubbed “the 360c,” it’s an all-electric, autonomous vehicle meant to make traveling and commuting a more pleasant experience.

Volvo, which is eyeing a 2021 release date, has an ambitious vision for the 360c, believing it could revolutionize short-haul* air travel, city dwelling and our environmental footprint.

Besides city driving, Volvo said the 360c would create new demand for inter-city taxi passengers traveling as far as 300 km.

The firm claims it will feature level 5 autonomy, removing the need for a human driver whatsoever.

Without a steering wheel or combustion engine*, Volvo has redesigned the car’s interior to become a futuristic* living room, bedroom or work space, equipped with full mobile connectivity. It has a sleek exterior that looks like a combination between an SUV and a sedan.

In a video teasing the vehicle, passengers sleeping in a pod-like bed, holding meetings and hanging out with friends as the concept car speeds down a highway.

The car’s windows turn into futuristic screens that show relevant information.

It appears the car could even be fitted with some kind of digital assistant, as a scene in the teaser video shows the words “Hi, how may I help you?” featured on the passenger window.

It uses a system of lights and audio signals to notify pedestrians and other cars about the car’s movements
