The Chinese automaker is set to launch a self-driving electric vehicle in 2023 that can clean the air of pollution from other cars. The salon of an electric car is a space that can be transformed into a dining room, bedroom, living room and games room.

The Airo electric car concept was developed by the British studio Heatherwick, according to the Daily Mail. Chinese eco-car firm IM Motors intends to launch it as early as 2023.

The car will run on electricity. In addition, it will be equipped with a HEPA filtration system built into the bottom, which will trap harmful chemical particles from the environment, pass them through an air filter and release them as clean air.

The salon can be customized as desired, turning into a living room, playroom, dining room or bedroom. The seats can swivel to face each other to form a living room or dining area, and recline completely to transform into a double bed. A fully glazed roof can become opaque, protecting the privacy of passengers.

Along with the car, Heatherwick has also developed a charging station for IM Motors, with a retractable cord and an ergonomic handle for connecting to electric vehicles.
