The Future is… The Volvo 26?

That’s right… Volvo. Named after the average (they say) commute of 26 minutes, the interior only concept Volvo 26 is, according to Volvo Vice President of Interior Design, all about the time you spend driving vs the time you spend being driven:

“Our research clearly shows that some people will want to use their commuting time creatively when they have full autonomous drive available. Others will want to just sit back and relax, watch online media or listen to music. Autonomous drive will make that possible.”

The focal point of Concept 26 is the seat design – which can transform into three different modes: Drive, Create, and Relax. Drive looks to be fairly normal, so what happens when the Volvo 26 Create or Relax modes take over? The steering wheel tucks itself away nearly into the dashboard, the chair reclines as if you’re at the dentist (what about the people behind?), and a massive screen folds out of the dashboard for some serious Netflix time.

The only thing missing from the interior concept now is a lovely car to put it in.
