Sedric was presented at the Geneva Motor Show for the first time in 2017. Since then, the first concept car of the Volkswagen Group has served as a cross-brand ideas platform for fully automated driving.
The latest family member in the form of the Sedric School Bus follows on from the original Sedric, Sedric 42 and Sedric Nightlife. The exterior and interior styled in the School Bus design presents the VW SElf DRiving Car as an ideal means of transport for the youngest generation.
The Sedrive mobility concept has the option of using the OneButton control element to call up a self-driving electric vehicle at the touch of a button, for convenient travel from door to door. This allows the school run to be carried out in a simple, safe and fun way.
The monolithic proportions, robust body pillars and generously proportioned spaces emphasise the inviting character of the vehicle. This riding experience can also be enjoyed without a driving licence, while the striking paintwork finished in yellow and black with stylised graffiti provides a clear indication that Sedric presents a pioneering alternative to the conventional school bus.
The youthful look of the vehicle continues in the interior. Aluminium boxes decorated with stickers form the basis for two of the four seats. The front windscreen designed as a large-format OLED screen provides onboard entertainment tailored to specific target groups. This will make the journey time to and from school seem shorter for the children.
