New Zero-G Seats May Become Benchmark for Automakers

When you are planning a long road trip, the seats in your car are likely among the last things on your mind. However, if the new ultra-thin seats introduced by Alfa Romeo enter production, you may need to start factoring them into your next vacation.

The seats were introduced along with the Pandoin Concept at the Geneva Motor Show and could be one of the most eye-catching parts of the Alfa. The seats measure only 30mm at the thickest part, and makes use of a carbon fiber shell to ensure safety and support.

Alfa Romeo is saying they got the idea from the "zero gravity" concept of design. Basically, the designers wanted to create a warm and inviting environment that is also safe and reliable. The seats are covered with Technogel, a material that conforms very well to curves, and feature a longer seat section to offer a more reclined driving position.

No word if the Pandoin or the Zero-G Seats will make it into production.
