Aww, how cute!
Volvo unveils tabletlike touchscreen for 2015 XC90 - MSN Autos
Interesting video, flush door handles and a very Tesla-esk touch screen interface.
Good eye! We'll have to keep on the lookout for more exterior photos to see how those look/work.
Charming baby-sized touch screen. And the driver side display is all digital as well. But curiously there is a gas gauge shown. So not really interested...
I'm looking for Volvo to be one of those automakers that might be able to "adapt technically in the mid- and long term" as S&P put it.
Just curious of other's thoughts - do find that with more and more cars coming with an entire LCD instrument cluster these days (like this Volvo) that the use the simulated mechanical dial speedo and tacho a bit silly. A lot of real-estate wasted in my opinion - so much more info can be displayed - music, nav, climate etc etc. Are people not ready for thing change?.
My 6 year old car has the old school mechanical tacho and speedo but with a small LCD in between. I have this LCD set to speed, trip computer readings and music. Seems to cover most things is its small area. Personally I would rather see everything directly in front of me on the cluster and have a steering wheel full of controls.
I find Audi´s solution making more sense :
New Audi TT's Gauge Cluster Will Spread to Three Other Models by 2015 â€“Â News â€“Â Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Now we're talking. At least some are moving forward.
This is how I envision most cars being in the near future, with a healthy number of customization options. I'm sure Tesla will add some more skins/layouts at some point as well, but they have a lot on their plate still.
