Rinspeed Budii autonomous concept previewed ahead of 2015 Geneva Motor Show

Rinspeed is known for their wild concept cars for the annual Geneva motor show, this year they brought a driverless Tesla Model S dubbed Rinspeed XchangE and next year will be showing a new model called “Budii” that they describe as “We need to redefine the relationship between man and machine”.

Details are limited, but the Dubii looks to be based on the BMW i3, but in a sportier package, revealing a radar like box on the roof, new wheels and a new aerodynamic package.

According to Rinspeed, the car for the city and surrounding countryside will handle the often inconvenient daily routine trips in-dependently, while the “pilot” will still be able to take the wheel as usual on fun weekend trips. The ingenious twist: the steering wheel is supported by a state-of-the-art sensitive robot arm, which enables both the driver and the front passenger to steer. And if nobody feels like steering, it is simply parked in center position.

The Rinspeed “Budii” is already the twenty-first proprietary concept vehicle of the Swiss “Think Tank” and “Innovation Lab”, and we are confident it is not the last.
