Guangzhou Automobile Group (GAC Group), a Chinese automaker, has unveiled its latest project at GAC R&D Center Europe called Car Culture #2 VAN LIFE at Milan Design Week 2023. This is the second project of GAC Car Culture Series, following the first one, Car Culture #1 - The Barchetta, which was revealed during the opening ceremony of our studio in Milan in October 2022.

This show car is the first project to be unveiled at 2023 Milan Design Week. The idea is to create a vehicle that allows people to travel long distances and go wherever they want. The latest design is a compact and streamlined van. With an efficient electrification technology, the car's silhouette is optimized for long journeys, providing exterior living space and making it a perfect alternative to airplanes.

VAN LIFE focuses on using and reusing existing features, reducing the carbon footprint and waste. It incorporates a new generation solid-state battery, which is safer, more efficient, longer-lasting, and more environmentally friendly than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Most parts of the car are made from recycled waste materials such as plastic, aluminum, and carbon fiber, making it lightweight, range-efficient.

The interior design embodies the orbital frame concept with a structure that surrounds the cabin and enables easy attachment and detachment of various items. From basic features like bags and smartphones to customized elements like trays and a hammock, anything can be easily plugged or attached. The cabin is versatile and allows for sleeping arrangements on long journeys. On the side of the car, benches can be fold out and slide out of the car to allow the users to share moments outside and enjoy the surrounding landscape with their family and friends. Additionally, the car also features universal magsafe technology that allows passengers to charge their personal devices while using them.

The Orbital Frame features modular equipment that can be installed at the front of the structure where they are exposed to the sunlight. This natural energy can then be transformed into electric power or used to warm water, making the car even more environmentally friendly.

The car's unique wheel tread system allows it to maintain traction on various terrains, such as mud, sand, and rocky surfaces. The AD navigation system takes over the driving, even in roadless, remote locations, using the position of the stars in the sky to find its way in case there is no network.

"This concept-car highlights what is great about being able to go wherever you want to. We believe that cars are not just objects that move people from A to B, but also machines that create good memories." said St├ęphane Janin, Director of GAC Advanced Design Milan. The VAN LIFE showcase, presented at 2023 Milan Design Week, embodies GAC's dedication to pushing the boundaries of car design through continued exploration of new car culture series projects.
