Peugeot is taking in-car connectivity to the next level with its Traveller i-Lab Concept, set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The French brand’s technological tour-de-force transporter features a 32-inch tablet slash TV, developed in collaboration with Samsung, along with limousine-like rear seats that face each other in a conference layout.
The huge screen takes pride of place in middle of the rear cabin, supported by a moveable arch pivot that allows it to split into 4 separate screens for individual rear occupant use.
Samsung also helped out with a wi-fi hotspot, Bluetooth module, charging docks and virtual reality headsets to complete a package aimed at business travellers and tech geeks alike.
“The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab makes everything so easy and streamlined,” said Alessandro Riga, i-Lab Interior Designer.
“The on-board technology is cutting-edge, transforming everyday life. The arch supporting the touch tablet embodies this versatility by fostering and encouraging exchanges between passengers while on the move”.
Peugeot hasn’t skimped on safety, either, with the concept featuring connected navigation with 3D mapping and real-time info and safety systems such as automatic road sign recognition and driver inattention monitoring devices.
“A trailblazer in emergency call systems, Peugeot is developing new connected services,” said Brigitte Courtehoux, Connected Vehicles and Services Director.
“Connected navigation is available on the PEUGEOT Traveller from launch and is the first step towards an enhanced future”.
The Australian distributor for Peugeot and Citroen, Sime Darby, has indicated its interest in having the regular Traveller – and Citroen SpaceTourer – vans introduced in Australia. Read more on that at the below links.
