High-end Citroen motor company DA Autos has unveiled a concept car it will be exhibiting in Geneva,media reported. It’s not hard to feel the desire for avant-garde aerodynamics in this all-electric Aero Sport Lounge. According to DS, the car has a power of 680 horsepower and a 100 km acceleration time of 2.8 seconds, while its 110kWh battery pack can provide up to 650 km of range.
However, this number is not possible, so DS is free to add its favorite number to it.
Aero Sport Lounge’s favorite spot may be its styling and new technology. For the former, the car looks very angular and fashionable, and the design below its headlights seems to see some of the Lexus shadows. The rear of the car saw the woven chain brake lights displayed by the company in last year’s DS X E-Tense concept car, and although this time they were sharpened, they emphasized aggression rather than elegance. The whole roof looks like it’s made of a skylight.
As for the grille in front of the car, it’s a big screen with weird technical animations on it, and a row of self-driving sensors and cameras behind it.
When you open the suicide door, you can enter the front and rear seats, and you can see that the interior is full of futurism: the steering wheel is like a cradle where a baby can be put down, the center console is designed to track the passenger’s hand movements and look for a series of hand gestures.
To avoid the touch screen as much as possible, DS decided to deploy a miniature “super-touch” speaker that lets passengers touch and manipulate three-dimensional objects that are not visible in mid-air by making a whisper, at which point they don’t need to touch anything.
DS says they used an augmented reality (AR) HUD in the car’s dashboard — but it sounds good on a theoretical level but difficult in practice. Another notable is the fork in the middle of the seat, which may be designed to allow the air on the passenger’s back to circulate during long journeys.
Obviously, however, the car is unlikely to appear in real life, but perhaps some of its design elements and technologies may be available for mass production vehicles in the future.
