Audi is adding a “salon on wheels” to its recent portfolio of electric concept vehicles designed to represent the German automaker’s vision for the future of transportation in automobiles.

The new “Urbansphere” concept was designed for travelers in high-traffic areas like China as a third living space and mobile office, according to the company.

Like Audi’s previous “sphere” concepts, which the company began unveiling last year, the vehicle is designed to be capable of handling itself in most situations.

The newest vehicle is larger than other concepts, blurring the line of a large crossover and a minivan, or “multi-purpose vehicle”, which create more space and are popular in China.

“Designers and engineers initially created the Audi Urbansphere for use in high-traffic Chinese megacities, although the concept is also suitable for any other metropolitan center around the world,” Audi said in a statement. “In these urban areas, where personal space is particularly scarce, the concept car offers the largest interior space of any Audi to date.”

The interior of the Urbansphere continues the trends of other Audi concepts. It features a modern design with wood and technologically advanced features such as a retractable steering wheel and a large video screen on the front dashboard of the vehicle’s interior.

The term “sphere” is meant to symbolize the interior space of vehicles for drivers and passengers, according to Audi.

Automakers routinely use concept vehicles to gauge customer interest or show the future direction of a vehicle or brand. The vehicles are not intended for sale to consumers.
