For one thing, the car would feature what is called Alive Geometry. This feature serves as an analogue display system on the dashboard that would actively alert the driver to incidents or objects ahead. From the exterior, however, the Alive Geometry also helps optimize the car’s areodynamics while appearing like 4D-printed movable wheelhouse covers.

First is the Boost Mode in which the driver is able to experience “intense driving pleasure.” Then there is the fully automated Ease Mode. Here, the Companion shall take over all driving tasks as the car’s interior transforms into an individual comfort zone.
