Rinspeed XchangE Concept teased for Geneva
It wouldn't be a Geneva Auto Show without an avant-garde one-off from the well-known Swiss "idea factory," Rinspeed. This year at the annual gathering in March, the firm's boss, Frank Rinderknecht, will unveil his latest effort in the form of an autonomous electric-powered touring sedan, the Rinspeed XchangE Concept. The 4-passenger, 4-door fastback will allow all on board to work in a fully connected environment or simply relax and enjoy the ride.
While details are few, Rinderknecht notes that the car's unique interior configuration features front seats reminiscent of those found in the business class section of airliners. The Rinspeed XchangE Concept also will incorporate "a completely new operating and display concept with a host of innovative entertainment, safety and service functions." Part of the control rethink involves activating the vehicle's fully steer-by-wire system via a repositionable steering wheel and gauge cluster that can be parked in the center of the streamlined dash until it's needed.
