the suzuki ‘e-survivor’ electric concept will feature a total of four electric motors embedded in each wheel, incorporated into the 4×4’s advanced suspension system. echoing the classic forms of the japanese-automaker’s SUV’s, it adds unique design elements with translucent doors and illuminated wheels. in the interior, a panoramic viewing screen stretches across the dashboard with navigation settings, and a 3D perspective of the vehicle itself on the road. the steering wheel also features a touch screen interface, while nestled between the occupant’s legs is a screen displaying their body temperature. traditional wing mirrors are substituted for rear view cameras that can be viewed on the virtual dashboard.
