Besides that the concept also marks the brand's next-gen cockpit debut, as you have a comfortable cabin with passengers sitting in classic NASA neutral zero gravity posture. It's natural to take breaks when you travel, so the Inception Concept is planned to be equipped with Level 4 autonomous driving capabilities.
Besides that, it replaces the classic steering wheel with a rectangular one called Hypersquare, which comes with a tablet-type screen in the center that can display information. There are circular recesses in each corner of the screen that users can program to control certain aspects of their vehicle, so they can easily use their fingers to access them without having to take their hands off the wheel.

Peugeot says the Inception will inspire future electric vehicles, including its most compact models. It is said that the first cars based on the design will arrive as early as 2025. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | ENGADGET | EUROPEAUTONEWS | THEDETROITBUREAU ]
