Volvo Unveils Autonomous Concept

Wed 5th Sep 2018

Swedish car manufacturer Volvo, has taken a bold new step towards automated cars after revealing a new driverless car that includes a sleeping environment and no steering wheel.

The new 360c has been teased to the motoring public over the last few weeks and finally it has been revealed as a future transport ‘pod’ which can not only drop passengers off from door to door, but also comes with four potential uses including a sleeping environment, a mobile office, a living room and an entertainment space.

The potential of waking up in a new destination has been the dream of commuters for many years and with the 360c pod including a carefully designed sleeping blanket that includes a restraining system, Volvo are certainly covering all options.

“When the Wright brothers took to the skies in 1903, they did not have a clue about what modern air travel would look like,” said Mårten Levenstam, Volvo’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy. “We do not know what the future of autonomous drive will hold, but it will have a profound impact on how people travel, how we design our cities and how we use infrastructure. We regard the 360c as a conversation starter, with more ideas and answers to come as we learn more.

“The sleeping cabin allows you to enjoy premium comfort and peaceful travel through the night and wake up refreshed at your destination. It could enable us to compete with the world’s leading aircraft makers.”
