Al being a virtual prototype, Volkswagen did not reveal figures of the motor train that would equip this urban ‘capsule’ and the only thing it said in terms of driving is that the Gen. Travel it would have level 5 of autonomous driving, which means that no person is required for its driving and consequently the steering wheel and the pedals in the cabin have been eliminated.
