Rinspeed xChangE Concept envisions the interior of future autonomous vehicles

At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show Rinspeed will present the xChangE Concept, a fully electric, autonomous touring sedan showcasing an advanced infotainment concept.


According to Rinspeed, autonomous driving is destined to become reality in the not-too-distant future. Starting from this assumption, the basic goal of the xChangE Concept was to put the occupants at the center of the driverless car.

“The key question is: How does the interior of a vehicle has to be designed to let the now largely unburdened driver make optimal use of the time gained?”

To give an answer, Rinspeed designers created a fully electric sedan with a distinctive interior, featuring all-new seats reminiscent of the business-class seats of major airlines and an all-new operating and display concept.

Among the revealed highlights is the movable steering wheel, which can slide to the center of the dashboard when the vehicle is in autonomous driving mode.

Rinspeed boss Frank M. Rinderknecht commented: “So far hardly anyone has taken this to its logical conclusion from the perspective of the driver. After all, traveling in a driverless car will no longer require me to stare at the road, but will let me spend my time in a more meaningful way”.

The Rinspeed XchangE will make its official debut at the next Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16, 2014.)
