The car with an entertainment screen for the front seat passenger

A United States patent application by Chinese electric car maker Nio has revealed details of a new entertainment screen for the front-seat passenger. While the patent is more focused on an airbag module named the ‘adaptive backup structure for airbag support’, design diagrams show a screen placed on the dash ahead of the front passenger seat. As reported by Chinese publication Chinapev, Nio’s new screen will be mounted on the passenger-side of the dash, but can be tilted towards the driver.
