Today, Land Rover has revealed its latest concept car, the Discovery Vision Concept, in New York. The concept car showcases the new design language that will be adopted for future Discovery models and for sure, it looks stunning. The Discovery Vision Concept was unveiled at the USS Interpid in Manhattan, just a day ahead of the 2014 NYIAS.
The design of the Discovery Vision Concept is far more radical than the outgoing model and will be used for a range of models based on the Discovery. Design highlights on the exterior include a stepped roof which looks really sporty and enhances the appeal of the concept. The interior is equally admirable and features plenty of innovative features.
The seats can be repositioned by using touchscreen controls and the entire, 7-seat configuration can be switched to a 6-seat, 5-seat or even 4-seat limousine-style arrangement in a matter of a few seconds. The doors of the concept incorporate stroller-style luggage which can be detached and used at will. At the rear is an innovative tailgate featuring a single-piece design, a sill step which deploys automatically and a folding bench seat. The entire cabin is finished in Foglizzo premium leather which is washable and repels oil as well as water.
The concept will also showcase the next generation Human-Machine Interface technology which offers a rich multimedia experience for all the occupants. Another interesting feature would be the Remote Control Drive which allows the driver to remotely maneuver the car at very low speed. For enhanced visibility, the concept packs laser headlamps with beam-dipping and intelligent object tracking.
Being a Land Rover, the car has be a perfect off-roader and it certainly would be. The Discovery Vision Concept equips Land Rover’s next-generation Terrain Response system that helps the driver to perform well over any terrain without much effort. Other technology highlights include Laser Terrain Scanning, All-Terrain Coach guidance system, Transparent Bonnet head-up display system and All-Terrain Progress Control.
