New York, 2019.
A crowd of people has gathered around Module’s press conference, waiting for the reveal. The lights in the place go out for a brief moment before several clusters of LEDs are fired up, filling the atmosphere with blue and purple light. Activate Your Steel by Megadrive is soon followed by the muffled sound of a v8, as an SUV covered in camouflage drives onto the stand.
A man and a woman, both in skintight neon suits and wearing cyberpunk-looking glasses, get out of the car and start ripping the camouflage off of it, revealing every detail and crevice, sculpted shape and feature in the car. The car’s HUD then writes “XR-20” on the front and rear windshields. The crowd applauds as the CEO of Module walks towards the car and the presentation begins.
THE NEW XR-20: BRINGING FUTURISTIC LUXURY TO CROSSOVERS
The new XR-20 is the purest expression of futuristic comfort and luxury. Futuristic lines, bringing attention from the front to the back and to the front again; a powerful presence, and, most importantly, all the uniqueness you’d expect from a Module. Your SUV has travelled back in time from the future, just for you, and it’s finally yours to enjoy.
A powerful and reliable 5 liter v8 with mild hybridization lies underneath the XR-20’s bonnet, ready to deliver 400 horsepower and return 28.5MPG combined (numbers tested on 91 RON, will improve on premium petrol). Power is delivered smoothly, confidently, and on demand. The 0-62 sprint is completed in only 5 seconds, with the power being sent to the rear wheels only.
GET TO KNOW REAL LUXURY
Synthetic leather seats, comfortable yet futuristic interior finished with alcantara and our famous adjustable LED system, plenty of space for all five occupants and heated seats, advanced infotainment featuring HUD (heads-up display) with hologram-like features and advanced safety. Whenever you’re in a Module, you’re in the future, and the XR-20 is no exception.
Of course, the new XR-20 couldn’t come from the future without featuring level 3 autonomy. And that comes paired with the full set of driving aids with your comfort in long trips in mind: autopilot (requires monitoring from the driver), lane departure assist, automatic emergency braking, fatigue detector…once again, your Module is on your side.
Module is always one step in front of the competition in terms of styling, and that shows in the XR-20. It has a strong concept car feel to it, from the way every element and cue is placed and sculpted to the overall shape, daring to be different. That doesn’t mean we forgot where we came from: the XR-20 pays tribute to previous cars such as the UR-82 and UR-92, as well as share details with the current UR-15.
The new Module XR-20 will start selling in October 2019.
