Airo is an eco-friendly car with a luxurious interior space.
Heatherwick Studio in London introduced the concept of the eco-friendly Airo electric car from IM Motor Company, which will absorb pollutants from other cars. The electric car of the newly established Chinese car brand IM Motors was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show. This is the first car designed by Heatherwick Studio for the company. The HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration system of the electric vehicle is specially designed to actively remove pollutants.
Airo will have an autonomous mode and a driver control mode. The car’s interior design is flexible, with rotatable seats, so it can be reconfigured as a “multi-function room.” You can unfold the four-leaf table so that the seats face each other to form a dining space or expand the screen to watch movies or play games.
The electric car’s interior can also be converted into a cabin as the beautifully contoured seat can be reclined into a double bed. In this mode, the “latest technology” can make the glass roof opaque create a private space. The Airo aims to solve the problem of global space shortage by providing extra space for dining, work, games, and even sleeping.
Heatherwick Studio also designed a charging station with the car, made of weathering steel with a retractable charging cable. This Airo car is scheduled to be released in 2023.
