Volkswagen has given the Gen.Travel features such as active suspension eABC (electric Active Body Control) that will calculate vertical and lateral movements such as acceleration, braking, or cornering ahead of time. It will also optimise the driving style and trajectory accordingly. Artificial intelligence (AI) and platooning – fully autonomous driving in convoys – will be used to further increase the range for long-distance journeys.
