1. The Harmony Scooter

The Harmony scooter features a clever folding design that also allows the scooter to stand upright without falling over, and when opened, will enable you to easily, swiftly, and safely get from A to B. When traveling, Harmony’s headlight system also doubles as a notification module, projecting symbols on the road based on obstacles that the e-scooter scans. “Inspired by the headlight technology in automotive design – Harmony can help guide micro-mobility users of dangerous situations and prevent road casualties by detecting objects from the camera and projecting warnings,” designer MJ Park says.


This self-driving concept trike christened ECHO is a stark view of sophistication level 5 autonomy will bring to the fore. ECHO has a trio of hubless wheels – with the two on the front reinforced with massive suspension systems to take on any bump on the road. The lack of a rider seat reiterates that you cannot take this thing around for a spin in manual mode when desired. Just imagine this thing marching forward along with a herd of Spot the Dog robot and an army of Atlas humanoids.

3. Bugatti Chiron Terracross 4×4 Off-Roader

Have you seen the 4×4 Bugatti Chiron Terracross concept by Rafał Czaniecki? It’s a bit of an oddball, but that’s exactly what makes it so intriguing. The Chiron is typically associated with smooth roads and high-end cities, but this version is built for rugged terrain and off-roading. It’s the brainchild of Rafał Czaniecki, who created it as a pandemic project. The result is a dystopian beauty that looks like it belongs in a world where futuristic cities and wastelands coexist.

4. Model M

Designed by Víctor Rodríguez Gómez, the Model M is designed keeping in mind the tight urban spaces, hence, the detachable handlebars make complete sense. The electronic kickstand makes the ride easy to park without any hassles. When it comes to adventure escapades, Tesla Model M has your needs covered. Right where the fuel tank of traditional bikes is, there is a detachable bag with its own battery that powers the lights and the multimedia system.

5. The Fordzilla Hypervan

Designed by Keyu Deng, and called the Fordzilla Hypervan, this dune buggy drew massive inspiration from the reptilians. It features a matte black color, that signifies a Godzilla influence, and matte orange hues on the outside and the inside of the ride, displaying a sharp character. The battery on the rear indicates its rear-wheel-drive origins, and therefore, a better balance and handling.

6. Yamaev’s Tricycle Concept

This odd and interesting-looking tricycle scooter concept was designed by Alexander Yamaev and features a rectangular side profile that slices through the air sharply and cleanly. It has a unique wheel setup with a large front wheel, that surrounds the scooter’s transparent bubble-shaped cockpit. It also features two rear wheels that interestingly separate at low speeds for stability, and unite at high speeds for maneuverability.

7. The Polestar CP1 Concept

Created by Lukasw Wenzhöfer, the Polestar CP1 Concept is an accessible, likable, and realistic version of the Polestar sports bike. It has a super cool geometric edgy design with high riding positions that elevates the ride’s performance status supported by the high-grade suspension system. The focus of this design is on ergonomics and functionality. So, those good looks are not merely for the eye candy factor, but rather for a defined shape that makes complete practical sense.

8. The USD RR X

Designed by Netherlands-based Ugur Sahin Design, the USD RR X is a Rolls-Royce concept that walks the careful tightrope between being a legacy RR automobile and being audaciously different. The luxury car borrows its main silhouette from the likes of Wraith and Spectre, with their luxurious-but-sporty appeal, while introducing a few minimalistic tweaks to the overall aesthetic, including sleeker headlights, edge-lines on the side, and those gorgeous aerospace-inspired rims.

9. Polestar Move2

Designed by Jen Ellison, the Polestar Move2 is a semi-autonomous, shared micro-mobility solution designed for a conceptual ‘Polestar Smart City’. It aims to be a form of comfortable personal transportation in a compact and sustainable package. The aim of the project is to discourage the ownership of cars, and instead provide a reliable, multi-modal transportation experience.

10. WAYRA EV-03

The WAYRA EV-03 electric cruiser motorcycle is a 100 percent no-gimmick concept that’ll please every kind of rider – be it a cruiser enthusiast, performance lover, or off-roading fanatic. WAYRA EV-03 is a bike high on personality, created keeping in mind the heritage of fat-bikes and cruiser-length bikes, while also having those minimal eye-catchy modern touches to create visual appeal. The presence of café racer aesthetics can also not be denied owing to the low-slung rider positioning.
