5 wild concept cars that have been unleashed at The Geneva Motor Show

Megan Donnan Tuesday 14th, 13:47

A range of brand new concept cars have been unveiled at this years Geneva Motor Show. The show is commonly used in order for companies to reveal new cars and their features to the public, also allowing investors to view the future of mobility and brand new incorporations. Each fresh concept has been able to be viewed since the show opened last Thursday, with our top picks below:

Oasis by Rinspeed

Rinspeed used the show to introduce their brand new urban concept, Oasis.

This genius idea is self-driving, which has been cleverly designed and perfected for city travelling. Frank M. Rinderknecht, swiss automotive visionary, has designed a compact speedy car with a small garden plot behind the windshield. The designer has explained it’s his interpretation of the Star Wars icon, R2D2. Along with various visual and technological advances, the small garden plot is said to be big enough to grow radishes or little bonsai trees. You certainly wouldn’t get a small allotment opportunity in your usual run-around. Rinspeed also visions the driver being able to select whom to ride with in the car via a Tinder-like app. The app intends to send out invitations to potential passengers. These contributions have certainly made Rinspeed stand out in the popular GMS this year.

 

Microbus

Volkswagen unleashed their brand new take on the 1960’s microbus.

The driverless version of the classic microbus has been proved to be a popular concept in the GMS. The ID Buzz clearly incorporates the original design of the VW microbus, but has so many fresh and exciting features. The unique driverless version is activated by the individual travelling in the ‘driver's seat’ by pushing the steering wheel inwards. This action then sends a signal to the car that the wheel is not needed, sending it back into the cockpit. The Cloud helps the concept with navigation, which is definitely making e-mobility a new identification for the popular brand.

Fly-Drive

Airbus popup concept has brought a brand new link to ‘fly-drive’.

The brand new popup car is initially seen as a compact pod, though can detach and airlift over congested traffic. The concept is said to have been designed in order to bring a diverse and modern way of travelling. A pop-up app would be available to all owners of the car as a way of conversing with the pod to detach and change to ‘fly-drive’ mode. You can get 100km out of one single charge, which isn’t a lot but can be seen as worth it due to the fantastically unique experience that can be generated from this drive. Airbus haven’t revealed when the idea will be available to purchase, though the thought is very exciting indeed.

Sedric

As well as the brand new electric microbus, Volkswagen used the Geneva Motor Show to also show off Sedric, an intelligent and personal robot. The German manufacturer used the show to unveil its first technological concept that doesn’t need to be directed by a human being. Volkswagen have stated that this concept will open up opportunities to travel more comfortably and leisurely. The flat battery pack would be situated between the axles, which enables the design to be more of a box shape. The design has been developed in this way in order for the shape to enable more space and, as previously stated, a more comfortable interior for passengers to enjoy. Sedric is able to find its own parking spot, pick up packages and drop children off at selected locations via the navigation system.

Toyota’s i-TRIL

Toyota’s i-TRIL is meant to be a modern concept instead of motorcycles. The two-seater’s technology allows wheels to adjust and improve maneuverability. Gone with public transport, as this quirky new design enables passengers to nip around the city and surrounding areas in a quick and stylish way. Created for 35-50-year-old women in mind, the electric car has been created to fit into an active and vibrant lifestyle. This car represents future mobility and eco-friendliness at its very best.

Along with the five that have been selected above, the Geneva Motor Show have also unleashed exciting concepts from Fiat, Honda and BMW, which equally have showcased their amazing new ideas and designs. Each have different and exciting interpretations on the future of eco travelling.
