Car Design: City Rover

Car Design: City Rover

With all the technology and novelty that we see/witness nowadays. It's hard not to imagine that in the near future (already here) we'll cars with auto-pilot, driverless cars where you can simply just let the car go and enjoy your ride from A to B. One of the primary novelty we had was the  Electric Car. We would like to showcase a car design called the City Rover that was awarded Michelin 2016 Design Challenge; MOBILITY FOR ALL. The city rover will take you almost anywhere ... But the city is where both of you will be at home. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); For decades we have been using small vehicles, or more commonly called micro cars. Some of these vehicles are among the most well known and successful machines ever created, ranging from the Isp / BMW Isetta to the original Fiat 500 or Mini. There are several key factors involved in the birth and growth of such designs but if we wanted to reflect all of them in one word it would be EFFICIENCY; Fuel, Economic, Space or material efficiency. About the City Rover In an era where we have an app or gadget for almost any small thing, it is astonishing to realize how unspecialized our cars have remained, big or small, almost all cars on the market today are general purpose, city and highway-capable and of course, we pay that price everyday. Aimed exclusively at the urban lifestyle and itineraries, the Huracan City Rover takes advantage of all the benefits that specialization brings; it leaves long distance travel to trains, buses or planes, and reinforces the best city car qualities. With this approach it can be boast higher passenger density, lower costs and clean power, all this without feeling range of power limitations.

Awesome Concept Cars

Hi everyone, I'm a new writer here at Adbuzeedo. I love all things design (like most of you reading this) and this is my first posting and I hope you enjoy it. I've seen many concept cars in my lifetime, whether on the web or at a car show, but I've never seen anything like these before. These concepts come from the Royal College of Art (I'm guessing that's in the UK somewhere). They're incredible! But of course, like all concept cars, I'll probably never see them on the streets...ever. Oh well, they're still cool to daydream about. Vehicle design at the Royal College of Art turns 40 next year. The postgraduate course, with a global reputation for nurturing up-and-coming car designers, boasts an alumni that reads like the who’s who of the car design world. It includes highly influential figures like Peter Horbury who turned Volvo around, and the maverick designer of Ford of Europe, Martin Smith, as well as Jaguar design chief, Ian Callum. Other graduates include the original Audi TT designer and current head of Kia design, Peter Schreyer and Aston Martin’s design director Marek Reichman. This year’s fourteen graduates kept the flag flying. Competing for the 2008 Pilkington Automotive Vehicle Design award, their projects ranged from a fresh take on eco-design to finding new ways of expressing personalisation. A couple of the students even challenged the status quo by designing boats for an imaginary future destroyed by global warming. Enigma concept by Paul Howse Winner: Airflow concept by Pierre Sabas Concept car by Ilaria Sacco omega concept by Joonas Vartola This weird wavy blue one below is actually the concept for the interior of a car. It's supposed to be flexible and allow for a much more comfortable ride as it conforms to your body. I just came back from a long car ride this weekend and because I'm tall (6' 4" or 1.9 meters) I'm always uncomfortable. Commended: Noah concept by Jung Hoon Rhee Commended: Phoenix concept by Sergio Loureiro Da Silva Winner: Nuaero concept by Jon Radbrink Nereus concept by Ceri Yorath I found this on design boom, who got it from Hi-Res, who originally got it from Wallpaper (Oh the internet is such an incestuous place. lol)
