Johnson Controls Vios Concept 2

Innovative seating and cargo storage options are a key part of the integrated small-car interior of Johnson Controls' Vios concept. Front passenger seats can be folded flat and equipped with functional modules for office, backpack and food-handling applications. When front and back seats on the passenger side are folded down, large items like skis can easily be stored inside.

Johnson Controls Vios Concept 3

Johnson Controls' Vios concept features modular, "upgradable" electronic devices and controls in the instrument panel that can be updated as a person's needs change by plugging new systems into vertical slots. Most controls are positioned in the "center stack" of the instrument panel, in response to consumer research findings.
