the Golf of the future?

Volkswagen presents the new GEN.TRAVEL concept car: a reflection on the future of long-distance mobility. And also aims to collect the opinions of the public, this from the presentation this weekend at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Competition.

This car is halfway between a sedan and a minivan, and puts a lot on its flexible interior space.

A space thought to live thought like a business class

With level 5 autonomous driving, there is no longer any need for a driver… The interior space is therefore extended to the rear passengers, who benefit from comfortable seats for long journeys.

Volkswagen is indeed considering this type of vehicle as an alternative to long-haul flights! And announces that certain characteristics could even be found in future production cars.

The driverless car will indeed change the situation in the way of using this type of transport. It will thus be possible to recover, even to sleep horizontally, or even to settle down to work on board… A conference area is also provided for business trips.

This concept car can carry up to 4 people, even if the possibilities of modularity are logically more extensive for two people. As the photos below prove! Table for 4 like in a TGV, or berths like in Business Class: everything is possible.

In the cabin, no leather: all materials are sustainable, with natural or recycled materials. The lighting has also been designed to make it easier for passengers to sleep and wake up: nothing is left to chance.

For entertainment, children for example can use augmented reality. Without more precision on the possible video games of the future…Playstation 8?

Convoy driving

Externally, the style broke with the current models, and stands out from production with its large butterfly doors!

But the revolution is imposed by the advent of level 5 autonomous driving, which will make it possible to set up such automated shuttles without a driver. To increase its autonomy, the car of tomorrow will be able to travel in convoy, in order to reduce consumption as much as possible. The cars will logically have to have the appropriate design to take care of this aerodynamics with new constraints.

Volkswagen does not give any information on an electric motorization or on the batteries used: that is not the question.

This concept car GEN.TRAVEL will therefore be exhibited at Chantilly, and will certainly be visible later in other meetings concerning mobility….
