The bubble van gets a solar roof and wide-opening rear doors, plus a sliding door on the passenger side to optimize interior space for shelving and the like, and can carry up to 800kg of stuff. Up front are three seats, although the middle one can be folded down to act as an on-the-move office with integrated laptop.
Handy man/woman-specific upgrades include a large light on the roof and digital shelving (named Sortimo) that can monitor stock, and remind you of missing items before you leave. In-built digitalness helps you create invoices and make receipts from the comfort of the van.
As we’ve seen a plenty with these autonomous concepts, there’s no traditional cockpit, with any information shown on a head-up display, and the steering wheel retracts into the dash when the Level 4 autonomy is in use.
It’s apparently as ready for production as the original I.D. Buzz, too, so we can expect these to be delivering our online shopping from 2022, though perhaps not fully autonomously. Excited?
