The luxury two-seater ditches the steering wheel for a massive, panoramic LED screen.

  • The Cadillac InnerSpace concept was revealed as part of the 2022 CES technology show, which was a mostly virtual event this year.
  • The InnerSpace is an electric vehicle with autonomous driving capability, and it eschews a steering wheel for a screen.
  • The concept joins the PersonalSpace and SocialSpace concepts revealed at last year’s CES in Cadillac’s Halo Concept Portfolio.

Here’s more evidence that Cadillac is moving away from its internal-combustion engine roots. Cadillac is showcasing the InnerSpace concept, which imagines a self-driving luxury two-person EV of the future, ahead of the debut of its electric Lyriq SUV, which will go on sale in the first half of 2022.

Of course, the InnerSpace is electric and runs on the Ultium platform, which also underlies the future Hummer EV and Chevy Silverado EV. The platform’s wireless battery management technology, according to Cadillac, allows the battery modules to be distributed throughout the car. This allowed the designers to optimise inside space and build a low floor, giving the InnerSpace a “sports-car-like” seating posture with seats that can be separated or pushed together to form a loveseat.

The stunning sloped roofline of the InnerSpace has panoramic glass, and the roof and doors open in tandem for easy access and egress. Inside, a wraparound LED display is visible from the reclining two-person seat. Passengers will be able to select between Augmented Reality Engagement, Entertainment, and Wellness Recovery themes on the screen, according to Cadillac.

The InnerSpace concept joins two vehicles revealed at last year’s CES as part of what Cadillac calls the Halo Concept Portfolio. The PersonalSpace is a single-seater, vertical takeoff and landing concept that would allow its passenger to travel over ground traffic, while the SocialSpace is a boxy, vanlike vehicle that can seat six. Cadillac also hinted at another concept, called OpenSpace, to be revealed later.
