Fast-forward to today and we can check out the interior first hand, courtesy of another teaser. The cockpit has a minimalist design and is dominated by the ultra-wide display, which includes a digital instrument cluster inspired by the one of the Urban EV study.
It provides access to a different number of features and also reveals the remaining charging time, among others. A number of physical buttons positioned below the infotainment screen allow occupants to adjust the volume or mute it completely. Further down, there are a couple of air vents, flanking the hazard lights button, and the usual controls for the air conditioning.
Dusk-sensing headlights, lane keeping assist, rear view cameras that replace the traditional mirrors, voice control, heated steering wheel, push-button start and others have also been fitted to the brand’s new electric prototype.
The Urban EV has, unsurprisingly, been toned down for production. It has five instead of three doors and these are now front-hinged. Also, the seating capacity has increased from four to five.
Details about the powertrain are unknown, but should be announced on March 5, when the electric vehicle prototype will debut at Geneva, at the latest.
It will then enter mass production, before being launched in Europe later this year.
