Tesla Model S Rinspeed XchangE Stuns With World Debut in Geneva

Likely considered to be the plug-in “star of the show,” the autonomous-drive Tesla Model S Rinspeed XchangE made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Swiss tuner/automaker Rinspeed revealed this concept that Rinspeed’s Frank M. Rinderknecht explains as follows:


“…traveling in a driverless car will no longer require me to stare at the road, but will let me spend my time in a more meaningful way.”

XchangE is purely a concept, but what Rinspeed says is that when autonomous drive becomes reality, the entire vehicle will need to be re-envisioned on the inside.

That’s what this concept shows.  The interior is widely different from a typical Tesla Model S.  It’s laid out as more of a lounge, since the task of driving is no longer a focus with autonomous vehicles.

The entire powertrain, including the battery pack and electric motor, is all Tesla.  Rinspeed left the Model S mostly intact, except for the interior alterations.

Rinspeed is known for its wild unveilings and XchangE doesn’t disappoint in that regard.  It’s out there, perhaps too far out there to ever be considered real, but we love it nonetheless.
