Varsovia Concept Is Poland’s Idea Of A Luxury RE Electric Sedan

Polish startup Varsovia Motor Company is looking to join the big boys in the luxury segment with a newly unveiled concept car, dubbed Varsovia.

The vehicle, the name of which translates to Warsaw (Poland’s capital), has been designed by Kadler, a local design studio, that took inspiration from Sawa, a legendary mermaid depicted on the city’s coat of arms, reflected in the hood ornament and other parts of the exterior and interior.

The futuristic styling continues inside, where focus was placed on transforming it into a luxurious office on wheels. The study has no front passenger seat, which was dropped in favor of two 90-percent transparent, 19-inch transparent displays that can be combined into a single 38-inch screen, once they fold down from the roof. These can be paired with the built-in computer with keyboard and mouse, and on-board tablet.

Rear seat passengers can use folded tables with a special stabilization mechanism, and in order to ensure increased comfort during journeys, the vehicle has what Varsovia calls “an extended spa system”, which integrates the functions from the lighting system with the audio-video system and a luxury seats.

The latter come with cooling, heating, and massage functions and, thanks to a range of sensors, can adapt to the user’s build and weight on their own, while other sensors, working in conjunction with a camera, recognize the passenger’s pulse and assesses if they are tired or excited in any given moment. From there on, the system will automatically select the hardness of the seat, favorite music and intensity and color of lighting, according to pre-defined preferences, set by the user, which makes the study the first vehicle ever that can automatically adapt to the passengers’ mood.

Another feature of the interior is that no element is made of plastic, as the company uses natural materials such as the already common leather and aluminum, combined with wood, silver and even mineral rocks. The parts that have the most contact with passenger hands are made of antiseptic materials, while the carpets and leather surfaces, which are exposed to pollution, have hydrophobic properties, preventing dirt from settling in.

Few details were released about the concept’s powertrain, but the Varsovia says it runs on electricity, with an internal combustion engine acting as a generator to charge the batteries, which are built into the floor. The full electric range stands at 350 km (217 miles), but once the internal combustion unit kicks in, this rises to 850 km (528 miles). The company estimates that it can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in less than 5 seconds.

Varsovia promises to present a full-size prototype during an “international car show” and considers producing it in a limited number of just 50 examples, after 2018. However, before low-volume assembly begins, the study has to be received positively by potential buyers.
