Varsovia Motor Company presents its concept vehicle, designed by the Kadler design studio situated near Warsaw (Poland), that likes to present a new level of design and luxury.
For the creators of Varsovia the basis for luxury and beauty is primarily minimalism and harmony, – the overall proportion and mass took a simple, classical form, deprived of any unnecessary elements. In a similar way, the inside, described by a few dominant lines enriched by a functional detail, is characterized by refined simplicity and elegance.
Varsovia is equipped with a hybrid engine with serial configuration. Unlike classic hybrid vehicles, here the drive is transmitted to the axle from electrical engines, and a small combustion unit installed on board serves as a generator which feeds the batteries built into the floor in case they are discharged. Such a drive enables a fully ecological use of the car in everyday conditions – when the current is supplied from an external charging station, the use of a combustion unit is not necessary. In case of a need for a longer journey with a discharged battery, the vehicle can continue by producing electric energy out of conventional fuel.
The total electric reach of the vehicle is about 350 km, and every filling-up with conventional fuel increases it by another 500 km. In this way the total reach of the vehicle with a full battery and fuel tank is about 850 km.
Varsovia broadens the definition of a luxury vehicle, being not only a wonderfully made and equipped means of communication, but also a comfortable place for work, entertainment and relaxation. The meeting of the main principles was started with the reorganisation of the seat arrangement in the cabin. The lack of the front passenger’s seat allowed to create additional space and to make it more convenient for one of the back passengers. That permitted the designers to make a priority seat with a unique space and facilitated access, thanks to a large door which opens upwards.
In order to ensure the best possible experience of comfort during the journey, the vehicle offers an extended spa system, which integrates the functions of a luxury seat, lighting system and audio-video system. The seat, developed from the scratch, consists of 9 independent elements with multifaceted calibration – each of them is equipped with a separate system for cooling, heating, massage and regulation of hardness. Thanks to an extended system of sensors the seat can adapt to user’s build and weight on its own.
However, the biggest innovation is the function of automatic recognising of passenger’s emotional state. The system, which is based on the number of sensors and a camera, recognizes passenger’s pulse and assesses if they are tired or excited in the given moment. This opens the way to automatic selection of many functions, e.g. favourite music, intensity and colour of lighting or hardness of the seat according to preferences pre-defined by the user, ensuring maximum comfort.
The whole interior is made of top-quality natural materials like wood, leather, aluminium, silver or mineral rocks, which not only increases passengers’ comfort, but also reduces the troublesomeness of the vehicle for the environment, both at the stage of its construction and utilization.
According to the creators’ philosophy, a luxury vehicle has to fit every client directly, just like a glove. One of the most important principles of the Varsovia concept is the fact that the buyer can significantly affect the shape of the vehicle – a team of designers will be able to meet almost every demand of the client, from the creation of an individual design of rims, through the installation of a nonstandard equipment, to the use of individually selected finishing materials.
The fulfilment of the described technical principles requires the maximum reduction of the weight of the car. The entire plating of the body and a part of construction elements will be made of composite material, and in order to ensure the lowest possible negative effect on the environment, the composites will be based on natural, biodegradable fibres. The predicted weight of the vehicle will be little over 2000 kg. The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h will drop below 5 seconds, and maximum speed will significantly exceed 200 km/h.
The firm will present a full-size prototype of the vehicle during one of international car shows. If it is received positively by potential buyers, the planned low-volume production will begin after 2018, and maximum 50 cars a year will be produced.
