Another feature Italdesign GEA Concept is the ability to change the situation in the cabin. In total, there are three modes: Business, Wellness, and Dream. When you activate the first interior turns into a kind of “office on wheels”. On the ceiling are lit 19-inch LED-screens and the front passenger seat can either be rotated 180 degrees, or folded, thereby freeing additional space for work.
In the Wellness Centre is transformed into a kind of miniature gym. In the back row are special pens – they can be used to perform uncomplicated exercise while watching the manufacturer’s instructions on the screen Technogym machines.
