An electric concept car without doors

Due to the lack of an auto show, the development of this year's concept car is quite slow. But Pininfarina made up for our lost time with the new Teorema.

The smooth, round body of this concept car looks more like the latest Hyperloop passenger compartment than a traditional car. The appearance may attract the most attention, but it is the interior that lays the foundation for the entire concept car.

The Teorema experience starts before entering the car. When the center panel of the glass roof slides open, the entire rear body shell will swing upwards, and passengers can walk into the car from the rear of the car, just like walking in The same door.

Teorema has a unique seat layout of 1+2+2. In addition to allowing walking access at a standing height, this layout also allows each occupant to move or reposition freely in the car.

The rear two rows of seats can be combined and folded into two independent recliners, providing an opportunity to relax with legs or sit in a conference-style arrangement. When taking a short nap, Continental smart glass changes color around the rear cabin to enhance the atmosphere of rest.

In Level 5 fully automated driving mode, the driver can rotate 180 degrees to freely interact with other people in the car. In driving mode, the driver faces the front and uses the dual joystick control system to operate the car, while the rear passengers remain engaged through the WayRay augmented reality system integrated on the roof glass to provide surrounding information.

It is reported that the Teorema concept car was created entirely through virtual reality, and we may still be far away from it, but this may be a good direction. (Via cnBeta)
