Rinspeed is ready to launch a forward-looking concept car, which will be on display at CES next month,media new Atlas reported. The modular Rinspeed MetroSnap builds on similar concept cars from previous years and emphasizes convenience as it can become a corner store, a local post office or anything the owner might imagine.
The newly released MetroSnap follows the design of the original Rinspeed Snap and last year’s compact, compact MicroSNAP electric concept car, another split-type electric car. This means that the removable passenger safety cockpit can be removed, upgraded or replaced as needed.
Initially, the idea behind these concepts was to give owners some freedom to use the vehicle and be able to install different types of cockpits. The 2020 version of the concept car continues this theme with an upgraded conversion system that allows for cockpit replacement in seconds.
As Rinspeed points out, these cockpits could be parcel stations for people to unload or pick up, or a health food store. Rinspeed’s latest modular cockpit concept is once again presented with a set of renderings, but the company insists that “it has now taken a critical step in mass production.” Rinspeed will be officially unveiled at the 2020 CES in Las Vegas, which will begin on January 7, 2020.
