This odd-looking thing is VW’s vision of future transport
VW has unveiled the OnePod Concept, a multipurpose vehicle which is supposed to give an idea of what future travel could be like.
Volkswagen has unveiled a fully autonomous electric pod which is the company’s vision for the future of city transport. Dubbed the “One“, its name stems from “One Solution for all”.
It boasts a configurable interior meaning the vehicle can be used in different ways - the vehicle unveiled is supposed to be a taxi.
The One is supposed to boast incredible aerodynamic efficiency, despite its elephant-like proportions. The wheels are completely covered and the body panels are sculpted to allow the One to travel through the air as best as possible. On both the front and rear section of the One are LED light strips which can communicate with other road users via warnings or signals.
On December 31, 2021, VW will display a prototype of the OnePod in the DRIVE.’s “Go.City - The Future of Urban Mobility” exhibition in Berlin.
