    in about 15 years from now our world will look quite different then today, when it comes to driving a car for individual transportation_

    electro mobility  //  car sharing  //  fully autonomous driving  //  artificial intelligence

    these factors will massively change driving as we are used to_
    but how about the storage?

  • // the concept_

  • Exigentiam (latin: Requirement )

    EXIGEN is a fully autonomous fleet vehicle, which intelligently adapts to its passengers' needs in terms of storage space_

  • with flexible subscription models, EXIGEN offers a mobility package tailored to individual needs, which sends a configured "Fleet Shuttle" to the desired location at any time_

  • // Privacy Windows

    the customizable glazing tint ensures the privacy of the occupants
    it also allows a complete darkening of the interior space, for example for sleeping during longer journeys_

  • the flexible seating position allows easy, comfortable boarding_

    the seats are freely rotatable and pivotable inside the vehicle, depending on the individual wishes of the passenger_

  • due to its optimized aerodynamics and high-performance electric motors,
    EXIGEN enables fully autonomous driving at top speed, offering an individual alternative to long-distance air or rail travel_

    on special speed lanes, the vehicle draws its energy directly from the lane via induction_

  • if the mobility package "Private Comfort " has been selected,
    EXIGEN will not be used as a shared vehicle during the time it is not needed and will automatically search for a suitable parking space_

  • the vehicle features an intelligent cargo drone, which moves out of the trunk to equip the electric car with luggage and items_

  • the spherical tires allow a higher maneuverability compared to conventional wheels.
    Furthermore they adapt in their condition to the respective ground to ensure the best possible grip_

  • the intelligent, flexible structure recognizes the shape and weight of luggage and other items placed on it - and automatically holds them in place by adjusting its shape_

  • in the fleet center, the vehicles are individually equipped according to the needs of the customers_

    depending on whether they will travel short or long distances, have a lot or a little luggage to carry, want to sleep or work the suitable module will be docked_

  • the extendable wheelbase of the vehicle allows the docking of larger trunk modules with a longer overhang_

  • the EXIGEN Cloud collects data from its customers calendar sync, smart home and all connected devices to calculate their needs and estimate their mobility habits_

    all data is drawn with the customers permission only and of course: fully encrypted_

    with neural networking and deep learning the algorithm of the EXIGEN Ai predicts when and where a car is needed and which interior and trunk configuration suits the passengers needs the most_

  • // Family_ 

    for the family, who wants to travel with a lot of luggage,
    the algorithm automatically selects the spacious Kombi variant (station wagon) with either space for 2 extra people or a much larger trunk_

  • // Sportsman_

    for the athlete with bulky luggage, such as Ski equipment or a mountain bike, the algorithm automatically selects the aerodynamic PickUp variant with a large cargo area_
