Cadillac debuted its InnerSpace autonomous car concept at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in a short film as dramatic as the two-seater luxury car.

InnerSpace is designed with a cocoon-like cabin that immerses passengers who sit in a loveseat and gaze at a panoramic screen that stretches across the front.

The curved display allows passengers to choose from Augmented Reality Engagement, Entertainment and Wellness Recovery themes for their ride.

Cadillac announced InnerSpace in a cinematic teaser, complete with sensational music and effects, about a wealthy couple who explore the world while traveling in the autonomous vehicle.

GM, which owns Cadillac, is one of several companies that pulled out of attending CES in person, opting instead for an online presentation — all due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The GM-owned company says its “new InnerSpace concept re-imagines that vision, with a fully autonomous experience that allows two passengers to focus on their journey, not the driving.”

Bryan Nesbitt, executive director of GM, Global Advanced Design and Global Architecture Studio, said in a statement: “Electrification and autonomous driving will fundamentally change the role of vehicles and the experiences customers have with them.

“We’re exploring where that goes with these innovative concepts, seeing mobility as an ally of wellness, giving customers the ultimate luxury, more personal time instead of taking it.”

On the outside, the dramatically designed InnerSpace has extensive panoramic glazing on the roof and part of the body sides for almost unobstructed visibility.

The roof can be opened to make the doors more accessible and the single seat inside can be separated and swung out to make it easier for passengers to board

The Cadillac InnerSpace also includes the latest technology, including “biometric input and AI machine learning.”

The vehicle is fitted with Goodyear silent tires with SoundComfort technology for a quiet ride.

InnerSpace is part of Cadillac’s Halo Concept Portfolio, which debuted a year ago at CES with an urban air mobility vehicle and a shared autonomous shuttle.

At last year’s online-only CES, GM showed off a single-seat electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft capable of speeds of 90 km/h.

And it also debuted a luxury autonomous shuttle that can accommodate two passengers.

The sleek, self-propelled drone would be GM’s first step into air mobility.

The company says it features four rotors powered by a single 90 kWh electric motor that produces speeds of up to 56 mph.

GM hasn’t revealed much else about its autonomous flying taxi, but is targeting the luxury travel market if and when it launches.

“It’s a concept for a time when time is of the essence and convenience is everything,” Simcoe said.

GM also showed a rectangular Cadillac Personal Autonomous Vehicle (PAV) that provides a social space for passengers – similar to a limousine but without a driver at the wheel.
