the volvo 360c comprises a modular interior with a glass dome on wheels. full mobile connectivity enables relevant information to be projected onto the windows where that be for enetertainment or work. the concept is really a conversation piece with a lot of its specifics yet to be determined. it could replace red-eye flights and transform the way we spend our time on the road turning your work commute into a much more productive time.

‘the business will change in the coming years and volvo should lead that change of our industry,’ said volvo cars president and CEO håkan samuelsson.autonomous drive will allow us to take the big next step in safety but also open up exciting new business models and allow consumers to spend time in the car doing what they want to do.

volvo says the 360c would create new demand for inter-city taxi passengers travelling as far as 300 km (186 miles). it claims the car will feature level 5 autonomy, removing the need for a human driver and by the looks of the video will feature some sort of digital assistant. it uses a system of light and audio signals to notify pedestrians and other cars about the its’ movements – a system volvo hopes will become the standard ‘in how autonomous vehicles can safely communicate with all other road users.’ volvo is eyeing a 2021 release date with ambitious views for the 360c, believing it could revolutionize short-haul air travel, city dwelling and our environmental footprint.

  • To Jim above, try not to diss homeless folks on a design website, most don’t really wanna sleep in their car. Beyond that this a beautiful concept like many with the same idea of having a car be more than a car. Volvo if someone is going to commute all night in a self driving vehicle where is the toilet in this thing? And I’m never going to trust a car to ferry me down the freeway while I sleep without a human operator at the wheel. I know that self driving cars are all the rage, however something that requires cellular signal to stay on course is frightening even to the densest of folks.

  • I have owned many Volvos, starting with a 544. …I see two issues: 1) To my eye, there is not a ‘Volvo’ line on this concept… 2) I understand some cities in CA provide designated places for people who have no other place to sleep, but in their car… yet, I seriously doubt one of them could afford this.
