YFAI’s XiM20 autonomous rideshare vehicle interior makes its world debut in California

This week, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (YFAI) unveiled the Experience in Motion demonstrator 2020 (XiM20) in Sunnyvale, California. This is a fully autonomous rideshare concept, offering new consumer experiences that are customizable to passengers’ preferences to better suit their journeys.

YFAI showed this concept as part of a mobile exhibit that will be making stops at customer locations, as well as the company’s plants and tech centers.

“Approaching this next iteration of the XiM demonstrator, we knew it was critical to evaluate users’ wants and needs within the vehicle and outside of the mobility context,” said Han Hendriks, Chief Technology Officer, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors. “The insights gleaned from our research defined what impacts consumers’ quality of life and what creates memorable, engaging experiences. With the XiM20, advanced technologies and product innovations complement intuitive design, providing flexibility and comfort for the autonomous rideshare passengers of tomorrow.” 

The XiM20 interior is designed to enable the use of two distinct zones: the bright, airy front of the demonstrator and the more cocoon-like rear, offering lounge seating and privacy.

Features in the XiM20 include the Smart Interior Surface (SIS) Table,

UV Surface Sanitizer, Never-Forget Storage, Noveto Smart Audio, Visible Natural Fiber, Active Space, Bulletin Board, Slim Air vent, Active Cast Lighting, and Touch-Free Access.
