The VW Gen.Travel Is An All Electric, Independent Car That is Yet to Come

The VW Gen.Travel Is An All Electric, Independent Car That is Yet to Come. At the Chantilly Arts & Elegance near Paris, the Volkswagen Group presented the Gen.Travel design study, which according to the company, ‘will redefine the long-distance mobility of the future and all the electric powered Innovation Experience Vehicle (IEV) is a real example that drives independently (Level 5) and gives a realistic outlook for the mobility of the coming decade. The car’s modular interior conception makes it a flexible, sustainable Mobility-as-a-Service alternative to short-haul flights.

With Gen.Travel, the Volkswagen Group has also developed an iconic, innovation-packed study that organizes a completely new vehicle category in the premium portfolio between sedan and MPV. As a research vehicle, the purpose of Gen.Travel is to test the idea and new functionalities for customer response.

Dr. Nikolai Ardey, Head of Volkswagen Group Innovation, said,

In the group-wide Volkswagen Innovation Research department, we are additionally advancing this idea, showing how our customers will be able to know the mobility in the future – for example, as a service.

The Gen.Travel drives independently and turns the driver into a relaxed passenger who has time for other things like; Work, Relaxation, Entertainment, and Family. Gen.Travel has a unique, modular interior idea that can be modified for each journey and booked as a Mobility-as-a-Service offering. Four people can be transported in the concept vehicle, depending on the configuration. The conference setup with four comfortable seats and a large table in the middle of the interior provides calm and comfortable surroundings for business trips. Dynamic lighting creates a pleasing working environment and avoids the danger of kinetosis (motion sickness). A structure in the overnight setup allows the transformation of two seats into two beds that can be folded out to a full-flat position.

An innovative passenger restraint system ensures extreme safety even in a lying position. The lighting system influences melatonin production to help travelers fall asleep and wake up naturally. The Gen.Travel with front seats can be configured for family trips to entertain the children using augmented reality (AR). The interior is light, with a natural design. All HMI (human-machine interface) elements are manufactured using sustainable materials combined with recycled or natural materials.

The exterior is divided into two parts:-

The clear glass cabin is flawlessly combined into the lower section, which houses all the technical features. The edge of the window is at belly level, making it very low to maximize the view of the outside. At the same time, when passengers lie flat in the car, they do not experience any exterior influences. The wing doors of the Gen.Travel enable better entry and exit.

For maximum comfort, the car has the active suspension eABC (electric Active Body Control) that estimates vertical and lateral actions such as acceleration, braking, or cornering ahead of time and enhances the driving style and route accordingly. Artificial intelligence (AI) and platooning – fully independent driving in convoys – are used to increase avariety for long-distance journeys further.
