Trans Pro CX solved the problem of interior for present implement carrier machine, because it only has one fixed seat. For the requirement of working in different country with different traffic regulation which is the left and right sides driving. And they need an extra "half seat" for passenger or guide to seat which can be folded away when only driver is travelling. In my final concept, I place the main chair on the tool box and the extra seat on the back rest of the cabin with sliding tracks. So in this way I solved the problem of separate suspension for both seats and we can put different layout as you want in the cabin. The reason I do this is for the fact that I have removed steering wheel in the front so we have more space in between. And I have put the control module on the handle of the main chair, which fit for the future design trend of this kind of vehicle. "In a limited space, you can have the extra seat on which sides you want, and both of these two seats have separate suspension." The Value: The concept main seat is adjustable solution for left and right side driving with a slide seat which can be moved easily from side to side based on a storage/tool box. And it also has a good solution for an extra "half seat" that can be folded away when only driver is travelling.
