Technology-filled variation of the Traveller van-based MPV will be unveiled at the March show
Where the Citroen Spacetourer Hyphen concept focuses on rugged, SUV-like ability, the Traveller i-Lab can be pitched as a VIP 3.0 shuttle, loaded with technology, including a 32in position-adjustable touchscreen tablet, WiFi hotspot, Cloud access, induction charging stations as well as virtual reality headset.
Driver aids comprising a next-generation 3D navigation system, road sign recognition as well as a system of which monitors the attention of the driver are also included, in addition to a high-end bird’s eye view camera system as well as autonomous emergency braking; these last two items are sure to make the item onto the production Traveller. Passenger convenience features such as ‘remote hotel check-in as well as check out, payment, virtual visit’ as well as hands-free sliding doors operated by waving your foot under the door are also featured on the concept.
The soundproofing can be also optimized inside Traveller i-Lab, to support the 17-speaker sound system.
outdoor modifications over the standard Peugeot Traveller are subtle as well as include large Traveller i-Lab badging, which covers the window via the B-pillar to the D-pillar. A chrome grille marks out the front of the auto, as well as a deep metallic brown paint colour has been applied, which has already drawn interest as well as so may be offered on production designs.
The Inside styling can be upgraded over the standard Traveller, with diamond-quilted Alcantara as well as leather seats, leather door panel trim as well as widespread use of wood trim throughout. A digital control module for the entertainment as well as climate control functions can be built into the headlining.
Breaking via the passenger-carrying approach of its Citroen as well as Toyota counterparts, the Traveller i-Lab has only four rear individual seats, in addition to the driver as well as passenger seats inside front, a set-up of which Peugeot says can be business-oriented.
Under the bonnet, a 2.0-litre 180bhp diesel engine as well as automatic gearbox are fitted; the engine can be already used inside Traveller as well as different high-end Peugeot designs, including the 308 SW GT.
Although the Traveller i-Lab can be a concept, Peugeot suggests of which the item previews future business editions of the Traveller. the auto’s party piece – the 32in central tablet – will not make the item onto production vehicles, however.
