    Yanfeng’s new XiM21 concept looks to the (very near) future

While the focus is clearly not on the exterior, the fact it has one is noteworthy. Recent years have seen interior-only concepts from Yanfeng. This concept demonstrates lots of types of technology and solutions that can be seen on the latest releases (such as the S-Class) with some near-future tech too. As presenter Han Hendriks, chief technology officer YFT, explained, the feedback they recived on the futuristic XIM20 concept was: ‘but which technology can we put in vehicles in the next two years?’ XiM21 certainly answers that question.
