Thanks to the partnership between Italdesign Giugiaro, Audi and Technogym the world’s first car with wellness mode is to be launched
At Geneva's 85th International Motor Show, on behalf of Audi, Italdesign Giugiaro will present a world premiere, Gea – the future of luxury class mobility. Gea will be the world's first car offering wellness mode developed thanks to the collaboration between Italdesign Giugiaro, Audi and Technogym.
Ideal for long-distance trips, it enables passengers to perform isometric exercises which are great for muscle awakening. When the driver selects wellness mode, dashboard LED lights turn to amber, creating a warmer, more relaxing atmosphere.
Two aluminium handles are fitted into the rear sets. By activating a sensor, the handles pop out of the compartment and can be used for upper body routines.
For lower limbs, two flat boards have been fitted to the floor, also designed by Technogym. These can be made to be raised and used for stepping exercises.
The monitor displays a video tutorial of Technogym exercise programmes to guide the user.
There is also room between the seats for a small fridge compartment where drinks or juices can be conveniently stored. At the top, a small drawer contains cosmetics and a perfumed pouch for aromatherapy.
