Ford Motor Company has received a patent for a futuristic vehicle interior concept dubbed “autonomous vehicle with reconfigurable seats”.

The US manufacturer’s patent includes plans for front seats that can rotate 180 degrees to face back-seat passengers while the car is operating in autonomous driving mode. In this layout, Ford‘s patent explains the steering wheel would retract into the dashboard to create extra space inside the cabin.

In another layout, the front seats can fold down into the foot wells to be used as footrests for passengers travelling in the back while the car drives itself.

It will be very strange when all cars are autonomous. You wouldn't need to face the front or have a dashboard etc. You could sit and play on your ipad until your cars pulls up outside work!
