Is Volvo PV the future of inner-city travel?

Could this rather funky example of futuristic design be a glimpse of how we are to travel from point A to point B in the future… as we are more than OK with that, if that’s the case! The Volvo PV is the result of what happens when the distinct simplicity of Scandinavian design meets the demanding needs of inter-urban transportation.

Perhaps its most dramatically different and undeniably unique feature of all is the adaptable seating position; the user has the option of how they would like to travel, they may find a standing position for short distances more comfortable than the more reclined position that’s advised for longer journeys. This change in position doesn’t just alter the interior of the vehicle, the headrests are connected to the tail-lights which move with the seating, changing the exterior visuals.

It’s undoubtedly a bold and beautifully executed concept, that would certainly bring a change to how we travel within our densely-populated cities!
