If you are a vehicle enthusiast, you would love checking out the newest car concepts introduced by major auto makers every year. Concept vehicles allow fans to get a more exciting look at the car production process.
Car makers typically use concept cars to showcase new technology or design features that they may or may not use for future models. At times, the public’s reaction determines whether the auto company will pursue their concepts. Of course, concept cars do not always make it to the production phase. However, they give consumers an idea of where the industry is heading.
Here at Carused.jp, we still couldn’t get over the wonderful concept vehicles from the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. As such, we’ve put together this article to feature our favorite concepts this year. You will find something interesting and awe-inspiring in the design and technology features of these vehicles. Keep on reading and who knows… one of these cars may even hit the market! One of these days, they might even join the ranks of the best used cars for sale!
1) Byton’s All-Electric SUV
At CES 20148, Chinese start-up company Byton introduced its all-electric SUV concept. The production version is scheduled for release on 2019, and it follows about 85% of the concept version. As such, looking at it can already give you an idea of what the final product will be. It is said that the features of the car will include face recognition technology, voice and gesture controls, cameras instead of side mirrors, and driverless capabilities.
2) BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe
The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe can be a strong contender of the all-new Bentley Continental GT and the Aston Martin DB11. It boasts some serious design and technology features that can compete with the premium big boys. BMW has not revealed the official engine range, but it is possible that it will include a fearsome 4.4-litre V8, as well as the 6.6-liter V12 engine found in the M760i model. BMW did a great job at designing the concept M8 Gran Coupe. It features a gold-tinged grille, overtly muscular haunches, and stunning Saleve Vert paint finish.
3) Toyota e-Palette
If you have a penchant for weird things, you would find the Toyota e-Palette quite interesting. The Japanese auto maker looked far ahead when they designed this concept. It is intended to be an all-in-one vehicle fit for businesses. If you’ve seen the Crocodile episode from the fourth season of Black Mirror, you’d get chills down your spine when you look closely at the e-Palette! It is a lot similar to the driverless pizza truck in the show. The e-Palette could be used to transport people and goods. It could also be used a mobile office or a fully-automated storefront, just like the pizza truck in Black Mirror!
4) Volkswagen ID Vizzion
Volkswagen challenges the electric vehicle concept landscape by introducing the ID Vizzion. It has the same funky vibe of the ID Crozz SUV, ID Hatchback, and ID Buzz Microbus. This latest concept vehicle from the German auto maker has a more lounge-like saloon design. As a driver, you could interact with the SAE Level 5 autonomous electric car via a selection of interior touchscreens and a virtual host. Aside from that, the ID Vizzion is also designed with laser scanners and cameras that will allow the driver to enjoy their travels without the hassle of actually piloting the vehicle.
So, which of these would you like to see on the streets?
