Los Angeles – Designed by Chris Bangle, former design chief at BMW and produced by REDSPACE, a new Chinese car company formed by the China Hi-Tech Group Corporation, REDS is an electric vehicle that capitalises on the time spent travelling between destinations.
The travelling leisure space, which measures just under 3m long, has been specifically designed to respond to the needs of passengers in China’s mega-cities, where 90% of their time is spent sitting in traffic. The car can seat four adults when in transit and five when stationary, with a rotating driver’s seat so that they can easily participate in conversations when not driving. The space, which will include a drop-down table, can be converted into a fully functioning working environment, while a 17” screen offers entertainment options.
As Uber recently explored in its campaign, mobility brands are beginning to address the fact that Asian cities are plagued by congestion.
