Peugeot unleashes Traveller i-Lab VIP 3.0 Shuttle concept image

Featuring a name that looks longer than the actual full size MPV, the French automaker has officially unveiled online the Traveller i-Lab VIP 3.0 Shuttle concept prior to its public world debut during the Geneva Motor Show.

Not long ago the continued collaboration between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Japan’s Toyota has spawned another trio of models – the Peugeot Traveller, Citroen Spacetourer and Toyota Proace. None of them will earn a design award and we’re not really inclined to say which one is the quirkiest but at least Peugeot has decided to take the concept road in an attempt to spice up things (which Citroen also did recently). The bespoke model comes with a dark copper body tint with darkened windows and a panoramic glass roof. Also at hand are the sleeker alloys and the sliding doors have gained a hands-free operation feature which is activated by swiping your foot underneath the vehicle.

The relatively minor design changes on the outside are not mirrored inside the cabin, which has been almost completely transformed thanks to leather and Alcantara upholstery, wood trim, and the high-tech infotainment system. The van now only has four individual rear seats and there’s also a 32-inch tablet sitting on an arch pivot so it can be moved around the cabin. The automaker said the tablet was jointly developed with Samsung and can be used as such or divided into four screens to create ‘mini tablets’. The concept also packs a roof-mounted console with several information displays and integrated LED lights and also benefits from the addition of a premium Focal audio system.
