Transforming Moto Car

Transforming Moto Car

The Paraton-e concept merges motorcycle maneuverability with compact car practicality into a transformable urban commuter for the sensible thrill-seeker. The driver can choose between a configuration that leans and negotiates traffic like a motorcycle with a leaner profile, or a broader stance to deliver a stable and assisted driving experience with a reclined seating position suitable for higher speeds. Slim as a sidewalk, the variable width of the vehicle also makes parking a cinch.

Human Hives of the Future

Human Hives of the Future

Design Yuhan Zhang imagines cities in 2030 being so congested they require multi-layered transportation systems that divide routes between pedestrian, commercial, and personal use. The system closely resembles a beehive, where individuals serving various tasks can use designated vehicles to get around and complete their missions. At the center of the hive, automated vehicles are dispatched directly to customers. For example, the Beetruck here is a programmable rental truck that’s perfect for transporting cargo.

Hot Honda Hatch

I love me a hatchback! More so if it’s electric and fast! Jex Chau’s Honda R-EV concept was designed with the already trending EV racing in mind. With sharp lines and abrupt angles, the 2-door makes perfect brand-sense for the evolution of Honda’s current aesthetic. It’s like a Fit on steroids!

Two-wheelers have their fancy appeal and I for one love the ride. The FREERIDE E-SPEED Electric Scooter Concept is essentially a motorcycle idea in a scooter’s architecture.

Now this is a Jag

Now this is a Jag

Without looking, take a minute to describe what you imagine a Jag looking like… chances are, you just described the classics AND the modern Jaguar XK-I concept. It’s an automotive brand that relies heavily on its name; a name originally synonymous with dramatic curves, top-notch materials, thoroughbred British performance, and overall star-quality of the earlier 50s and 60s models. It’s nice to see a Jag concept that embodies the roots of the brand when it was in its prime!

Roll and R1de

The futuristic R1 (Roller 1) concept vehicle was designed for the not-so-distant 2030s and aims to shed light on what might be expected from urban vehicles of the future. Powered by hydrogen fuel-cell technology, the R1 moves on 4 spherical wheels capable of cross-directional movement, making it ideal for parking, changing lanes, or turning on a dime. The small size of the hydrogen power plant provides more cockpit space on a lightweight chassis and also makes its low profile possible.

Mini Transformer

The age of super-compacts is in full swing, but with that smaller wheelbase comes compromise in stability. MONO is a transformable EV that adapts its stance to maximize the driving experience whether you’re in the city or on the open road. The vehicle automatically adjusts the wheelbase depending on road type, traffic, or speed to ensure stability and practicality no matter the driving conditions. In its compact form the EV is only slightly larger than a motorcycle, making it perfect for zipping around the city.

The Ultimate Citi Bike

The Ultimate Citi Bike

This is the future and the city’s business district frowns upon those who bring their cars to work. The alternate arrangement is to leave your car at a distant parking lot and cycle your way to work. Why? Overpopulation has taken its toll on the city and this is a plausible solution. In comes the Ford Citi Bike, one that is designed for easy mounting and holding gadgets like laptops and iPad.
