This is the Varsovia Concept; a hybrid luxury sedan that certainly shows its home country of Poland to have come along way since the FSO days. The Varsovia is making some brave claims as its press release states it to be a new level of luxury and a proper long distance traveller.
In terms of design, it focuses heavily on minimalism and harmony. The design looks somewhat generic, however as it possesses lines that we’ve seen in many concepts before it. To top its luxurious persona off it has been fitted with a mermaid named Sawa at the top of the bonnet as a representative of Warsaw’s coat of arms.
The Varsovia bases its luxury on its ability to keep its passengers occupied with a combination of communication and comfort. It is essentially a mobile office and to make it spacious enough to be so, its passenger seat has been removed.
To turn this into a mobile office it has been equipped with a computer system displayed through two 19-inch screens, integrated with the glass roof, that can link up with the user’s mobile device. It also has a high-speed data connection and an extended spa setup.
The drive makes use of a hybrid system which relies on two electric motors on the front wheels, powered by a battery unit. If this unit runs dry, a gasoline powered generator will kick in, meaning that this is more of a range extended EV than a hybrid.
The system boasts and electric range of 350 km (850 km with range extender). Composite materials will give the car an overall mass of approximately 2 000 kg with a 0-100 km/h time of 5,0 seconds with a top speed of over 200 km/h.
Despite this being a farfetched concept, Varsovia is quite serious about it and should it gain enough interest, the Polish company hopes to sell 50 units a year, stating 2018.
