X-by-wire technology replaces conventional mechanical linkages with by-wire technology which means steering and braking systems can be re-packaged to create more internal space without changing the vehicle's overall length.
On the EA2 concept, this has made it possible to add a third row of seating and capacity for seven passengers. By-wire also allows for a smaller racing-style steering wheel that requires less steering input and can be moved to make getting in and out of a car easier.
The brake-by-wire system reduces pedal travel through the use of an electrical system instead of boosters, links and hydraulic cylinders, freeing up more interior space.
The car’s shift-by-wire system also allows for a movable centre console, making it easier to move between the driver and front passenger seats.
