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


    From the moment the presentation of Yanfeng’s new concept began, it was clear that this was a bit different. For one thing, the concept has an exterior. 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.
