The hybrid unit offers a claimed range of around 850 kilometres.

The Varsovia Motor Company from Poland aims to join the burgeoning low emissions luxury sedan market with the Varsovia Concept. The boutique automaker promises a real-world debut during an upcoming international auto show. However, the boxy sedan’s future is far from certain because the small firm admits that it needs a positive reception from potential buyers before production could commence. Assuming everything goes to plan, the firm would build a 50-unit run of the high-tech four-door sometime after 2018.

Varsovia offers few details about the concept’s powertrain. It runs on electricity, but an internal combustion engine acts as a generator for charging the batteries. The company claims a fully electric range of 250 kilometres (217.5 miles), or 850 km (528 miles) with the help of a full tank of fuel. Acceleration to 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour) from a standstill would take less than five seconds.

The Varsovia Concept’s traditional three-box shape comes from the Kadler design studio, which is near Warsaw, Poland. The stylists took inspiration from the mermaid on the city’s coat of arms by embossing portions of the front fenders and doors, which gives the look of scales. The mythical creature also has a stylized depiction on the hood ornament.

Inside, the concept’s layout caters to rear seat occupants. Instead of a front passenger seat, a pair of 19-inch transparent displays can fold down from the roof. The vehicle features an onboard computer and satellite Internet connection, which makes work easy from the road. There’s also a built-in keyboard and mouse in the back.

People can’t work all the time, and the Varsovia’s rear seats offer the ultimate in relaxation. They feature nine sections that each have separate settings for cooling, heating, firmness, and massage functions. The company even claims the tech automatically adapts to an occupant’s size and weight.

If the concept actually sees production, Varsovia would offer customers ample room for customization. Buyers could request any non-standard equipment, work with designers to create unique wheels, and pick the exact layout of the multimedia system. Unless the boxy sedan garners enough interest, none of that would ever happen, though.
