NEVS Unveils a Self-Driving ‘Room’ [Video]

National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), the mobility company that was founded after acquiring Saab Automobile in 2012, released a new autonomous concept car at CES Asia in Shanghai this week.

The vehicle is called InMotion Concept and features an adaptable interior that could be controlled via an app for when someone rides by themselves, with friends, or with colleagues or business associates. A person traveling by themselves, for instance, would have their seat facing the wall or window of the car, while riding with friends would have seats facing directly toward each other, and riding with colleagues would have all seat facing a presentation screen.

“The InMotion Concept is not a car, it’s more like a self-driving room,” the video proclaims, “Where you can work, socialize or relax.”

Sweden is already experiencing a decline in people obtaining drivers licenses — especially young people, Fredrik Frykland, director of communications and public affairs for NEVS, told Mobility Finance.

“It’s too expensive and too complicated to have your own car. Especially when it comes to getting rid of the car, [i.e.] parking,” he said. Therefore, NEVS plans to initially target inhabitants of traffic congested cities with its self-driving cars, he added.

NEVS’ head office and main research and development facilities are located in Trollhättan, Sweden. The company’s car production plant is located in Trollhättan, with a second production plant and a research and development center under construction in Tianjin, China, as well as a production plant in Fujian, China.
