For more than a century, we’ve known automotive design to feature elements such as a space for the engine (usually up front), as well as a passenger compartment and provisions for cargo. Yet Aston Martin begs to differ as it puts forward the Lagonda Vision Concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
It’s a totally radical design study that does away with traditional elements such as the engine bay up front. That’s because this one will not utilize an internal combustion engine. You must recall that it is electric. The only things needed are the batteries that occupy the underfloor of the vehicle. The rest can be used for passenger space.
Aston Martin does just that, with a large cabin that allow passenger to lounge around and relax while on the move. The steering wheel can even be moved from left to right, or retracted altogether for autonomous mobility. Moreover, the rear doors open outward and upward for total flexibility.
