Poland-based Varsovia Motor Company unveiled this week a new electric vehicle concept to feature its latest luxury interior design. Conceptualized by a group of designers and engineers based in Warsaw, the concept called ‘Varsovia’ (Polish for Warsaw) aimed to reshape the idea of the interior of a luxury sedan.
Like most new concept cars these days, the vehicle has some form of an electric powertrain. Varsovia Motor is aiming for an all-electric range of ~215 miles (350 km) on a single charge and a gas-powered range extender would also be offered – a la BMW i3 Rex.
The company says that battery pack is incorporated in the floor, a now very popular configuration for EVs, in order to have as much space as possible in the passenger compartment, which they want to transform into a “mobile office”.
The company writes in a press release:
“The basis for the functioning of a mobile office is an extended audio-video system, together with a built-in computer and an advanced information system. It can pair with all the mobile and computer devices on board, and enable to work remotely without them, without having to take them out of a bag or pocket; a superfast access to satellite Internet allows to communicate from every corner of the world. The data and functions of the system are shown on two large 19-inch transparent displays, which – when folded – integrate with the glass roof of the vehicle and become completely non-invasive. Thanks to the use of innovative matrices the turned off displays are 90% transparent – when they are folded, they function as a roof window, but they can simultaneously show any given images, e.g. they can imitate a view of a night sky during the day; when they are unfolded, they create a double panoramic screen with a record diagonal of 38 inches. The operation of the equipment is possible thanks to a built-in tablet, keyboard and mouse. In addition, passengers have folded tables with a special mechanism for the stabilization of level at their disposal. “
Here are a few renderings of the interior released by the company:
Varsovia Motor is currently working a “full-size prototype” of the vehicle, which it plans to bring to an international car show next year without saying which one. Depending on the reception at the trade show, the company would start planning for low-volume production to begin at some point after 2018 with a maximum of only 50 cars a year.
The company is aiming to create some exclusivity around owning its vehicles.
