Volkswagen made a very unique concept car, the Volkswagen Gen.Travel Concept. The car is made like a walking bedroom. Currently, many car manufacturers in the world are trying hard to make luxury cars as comfortable and luxurious as possible.
Some are so sophisticated that they are like a walking office. There is also a very complete to like a walking hotel. Volkswagen actually offers something different from the Volkswagen Gen.Travel Concept. They want to make a car like a walking bedroom.
In an official statement, Volkswagen said the car seats in the Volkswagen Gen. The Travel Concept can be converted into a sleeping mattress. In addition, they also prepared a very comfortable lighting system when the car passenger fell asleep.
The lighting can increase the production of the sleep hormone, melatonin. So the passengers in the car can really sleep soundly during the trip. Volkswagen even adjusted the sleeping mattress in the car to avoid being exposed to unnecessary light from outside.
That could have happened considering the cabin of the Volkswagen Gen.Travel Concept is almost entirely made of glass. For this reason, the position of the mattress is made as low as possible. So the sleeping position will be under the car window. That position makes you not easily exposed to light and also not easily seen by people from outside the car.
“Gen.Travel offers an emission-free and stress-free car concept,” said Dr Nikolai Ardey, Head of Volkswagen Group Innovation.
Volkswagen says the Gen.Travel is a pure electric car. It’s just that they haven’t released any specific information regarding the powertrain. In contrast, Volkswagen says the Gen Travel has Electric Active Body Control that calculates the previous car’s movement and adjusts the suspension parameters accordingly, keeping things as smooth as possible.
“Gen.Travel gives us an idea of the conditions of future travel. What autonomous driving will be like in the future. In those days cars will not only be better, but also more interesting than ever,” explains Klaus Zyciora, Head of Volkswagen Group Design.
