Go have a gander at some of the very first saloon-style vehicles and you’ll see just how they earned their namesake. They were more like tea rooms on wheels than cars! Now, this far-out autonomous Renault concept vehicle might not look anything similar to classic cars of the distant past, but the layout and experience are like going back in time.
Looking to the future of autonomous operation, the design places four riders facing each other without any distinguishment between driver and passenger. Those present can relax, nap, converse, or take in the scenery. Highlighting the relaxed nature of the interior, a central fireplace serves as a surprising and cozy accent. It’s a rolling living room designed to make your commute or road trip all that more enjoyable.
