A Compact EV Is Turned Into a First-Class Seat on Wheels

An unusual project based on the BMW i3 was named Urban Suite.

The Urban Suite has not undergone any technical changes, and is only distinguished by stickers with the model name. But the interior design is radically different from the original model.

Only the driver's seat and dashboard remained the same but everything else was changed. A single passenger seat is installed in the back now. The vacant space next to it is occupied by a table, and the passenger seat in front has given way to a footrest for the person sitting behind.

The car features a display that reclines from the ceiling, as well as a speaker system that forms a special sound zone around a single sitting person. The interior is finished with fabrics made from recycled materials and vegetable-tanned leather, the floor mats are made of fully recyclable materials, and the wooden decor is made of certified wood.

Several Urban Suites manufactured in Munich will be available in Las Vegas in January. Everyone will be able to drive them during the CES 2020 Tech Expo.
