At the recent Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California, eco-conscious mobility company NWTN revealed the Rabdan MUSE (Marvelous, Unique, Sensual and Elegance), its passenger-centric green mobility solution for the future.
Manufactured in the United Arab Emirates, the EV is stated to be built from the latest and most advanced technologies. The concept, developed in 2019, is focused on passengers’ needs for personalized travel experiences, also known as passenger-centricity. Instead of delivering a driver-focused experience, the OEM aims to deliver a new vehicle segment known as Smart Passenger Vehicles (SPVs). The company’s new segment seeks to change consumers’ perceptions of how a vehicle could enhance their lives.
To help achieve this, NWTN has built the Rabdan MUSE with IoT connectivity and autonomous driving and AI technologies. Additional features include a passenger-centric digital infotainment system that delivers an intelligent riding experience, supported by car seats equipped with control privileges. A built-in office and entertainment system also feature.
The Rabdan MUSE was designed from the inside out, with the exterior architecture and proportions reflecting the interior space. The result, as NWTN puts it: “a mono-volume divided into a helicopter-like cabin”.
With the company viewing space in the world as the ultimate luxury, NWTN’s designers and engineers sought to push the physical boundaries away from the occupants, without a hierarchy between the driver and the passengers. To create an ‘oasis of comfort and relaxation’, NWTN chose an empty-space approach with minimalist surrounding surfaces wrapping around four captain seats to deliver a large amount of legroom.
A U-shaped panoramic screen replaces conventionally used instrument panels, providing front passengers with several smart technologies. Sustainable materials have been used to upholster the interior.
