Deconstructivism Inner-city Interior Concept – Inclusively Designed

With the current growth of large cities, and the number of people living and travelling within them, the focus should be on a future inner-city vehicle, aimed at 2020. This is for people commuting, or otherwise travelling within the city; ideally, but not solely, for short distances.

The inclusively designed interior can be used by many different people; it looks smart and functions intelligently. This new interior is simple and easy to use; ergonomics are perfected and the whole design suited to driver needs and demands. Adjustable within the basic design at the dealer, its inclusive approach crosses barriers of age, physique and gender, offering individuality with quality.
