Volvo understands that autonomous vehicles have to offer not only the safety of bringing you to your destination without accidents. Autonomous vehicles have to be fun and have to help you make proper use of the time spent inside. So the Volvo designers and engineers decided to include some special equipment for future Volvo`s that can drive you safe back home.

Anticipating the future, Volvo launched Concept 26 named to reflect the average daily commute to work of 26 minutes – time that could be spent doing something more meaningful than sitting in stop-start traffic. 

Concept 26 is based around an all-new patented seat design that actively cradles the driver during the transformation phase into one of the three modes: Drive, Create or Relax. With these three modes the concept creates a new autonomous drive innovation platform that can adapt to new needs and technologies over time.

When the driver wishes to delegate driving to the car, the steering wheel retracts, the seat reclines and a large display emerges from the dashboard allowing the driver to enjoy the time spent in the car as they like.
