The Geneva International Motor Show is Europe’s premier annual motor show and the world’s top venue to exhibit the latest supercars, prototype, concept cars, automobile designs, and breakthrough technology.
On this list, we’re going to present the coolest concept cars to grace the show. Scroll down to start!
Honda’s NeuV – Electric Autonomo-Box
Aside from being a pure-electric concept car, NeuV also has a state-of-the-art emotion engine called HANA or Honda Automated Network Assistant, which enables the machine to artificially generate emotions. How does it work? According to Honda, the emotion engine will gather data from the emotions behind the driver’s judgments and make new choices and recommendations based on the driver’s past decisions.
The car also has a full touch-panel which is accessible to both driver and passenger, and additional enhanced selection of driving modes. They’ve added “Comfort”, “Sport”, and track-focused “R+”, and each driving mode has tailored adaptive dampers, steering force, gear shift feeling and throttle response. This concept has an optimized 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo with an output of 320 PS and peak torque of 400 Nm.
Toyota i-TRIL – Urban Kid Hauler
If you’re a single mom, aged 30-50 years old, with 2 children and living in a SMESTO (Small to Medium Sized Town), this car concept is made especially for you!
The car is equipped with Toyota’s Active Lean Technology for enhanced maneuverability. According to Toyota’s blog site, this system has a lean actuator motor and gearing mounted above the front suspension member linked via a yoke to the left and right front wheel, working in conjunction with rear-wheel steering and controlled by a conventional steering wheel. Acceleration, steering, and braking are all handled via drive-by-wire tech and control nodes hidden beneath the driving module fabric.
At the moment, there’s no information regarding its top speed and 0-62 mph sprint capabilities. Range is about 200 km or 124 mi per charge.
Volkswagen Sedric – Self-driving Car
Amazingly enough, this car doesn’t have a steering wheel and pedals. Sedric the self-driving car transports people to their destination with just a push of a button. This button is linked to a universal mobility ID, which allows customers to switch between their own personal autonomous Sedric – under one of VW’s brands – to a shared vehicle in another city. According to Volkswagen, Sedric is considered as the “father” of the future Volkswagen’s numerous concepts – which means that aspects of the design will be used in future concepts and even production cars.
