The exterior of the car is endowed with two swing doors on both sides which makes it easier for users to enter and alight from the car.
The interior of the car shows the car needs no driver and is just a mobile lounge as it has no steering wheels or pedals.
According to Paul Tan, the large window surfaces present a higher level of contact with the outside world, and the windscreen doesn’t just allow occupants to look out of the car. Made up of a large, high-resolution transparent OLED screen with augmented reality, the screen also doubles up as the communication and entertainment centre display.
The four seats in a 2+2 arrangement is designed in birch leather chosen as the upholstery material on large surfaces and air-purifying plants positioned in front of the rear windscreen.
