Posted: May 6, 2014

The future of business meetings or entertainment rides is going to start looking at lot different very soon!Ford recently unveiled its Transit Skyliner, a luxury motor coach transformed to resemble something more like a tech savvy dream. Ford combined technology, style and luxury to create this ultimate ride for the people mover market.While the exterior resembles the conventional Transit the interior will have you questioning whether you are in a lear jet or van!The interior consists of 4 modes – theatre, business, reception and travel – with custom-designed luxury seats that move and reposition automatically and are controlled by a smart device such as a phone or tablet.Theatre mode includes reclining seats that face a 52-inch retractable movie screen. Relaxation at its best!For business mode the seats shift to surround a motorised unfolding table. Talk about business on the go!Reception mode is great for events. The sliding doors open unusually wide to allow for seats to be arranged together to view events from the comfort of the Transit.Lastly, travel mode ensures that passengers travel in ultimate luxury as they can recline, kick back and rest their feet on footrests for ultimate comfort!This smart vehicle can be entirely operated by your smart mobile device from the adjustable seats to the spacey LED lighting to the state of the art surround sound to the HD TV and Kaleidescape media server. With one touch of your smart phone you control it all!And if that’s not enough the Transit has a built-in bar so you can enjoy those refreshments from the comfort of the Transit’s one of a kind leather seats.Speaking of those custom designed leather seats – did you know with the Skyliner you also get matching custom luggage? It’s style all the way with this ride!The exterior is a custom silver metallic with lower trim accents, chrome highlights and custom made Forgiato wheels – giving this updated vehicle a very European look.The transit could easily enter the limousine market as it can be customised for the commercial and private transport industries.
