Richard Kim, who is in charge of vehicle design, said: ‘We chose to completely rethink the design of the car and focus on what future users will really need. Therefore, we came up with this loft-inspired vehicle.

Each vehicle will use a standard undercarriage called a ‘skateboard’ on which customers can select different ‘top hats’ that create the interior of the car.

The company says it plans to launch four styles of electric cars by 2021 that include a ‘lifestyle vehicle’, a ‘last mile delivery’ vehicle, a ‘passenger transport’ vehicle and a ‘personal traveler’ vehicle .
