UK-based electric vehicle start-up Arrival has shown off the minivan styling of its planned car aimed at drivers of ride-hailing taxis.
The design of the car has been optimized with the help of drivers from Uber to ensure a more comfortable experience for both driver and riders, Arrival said.
The resulting prototype model is "affordable, durable and great to look at," said Tom Elvidge, head of vehicle platforms at Arrival.
The car has “exceptional visibility and comfort,” Arrival said in a statement.
Its long windscreen continues into a panoramic sunroof to increase the feeling of airiness in the cabin. The rear seats are pushed back to give "more legroom than a Rolls-Royce," Elvidge said in a YouTube video for Uber drivers.
The front passenger seat folds down and slides under the dashboard to further increase rear legroom or allow room for a bag. The trunk designed to accommodate two large and two small suitcases.
