Self-driving cars may not be as exciting and futuristic as they once were, as many companies have developed autonomous prototypes in the last few years.
However, there is still plenty of room for futuristic concepts to emerge and light up our imaginations. And at the Shanghai Motor Show, one incredible concept car made a huge splash.
When most people think of flash and innovation, Chevrolet isn’t the first brand that comes to mind. Chevy’s new FNR Concept looks a lot more like something you’d expect to be dreamt up my Tesla or some luxury chop-shop. Nonetheless, Chevrolet is solely responsible for the insanely high-tech FNR, and we love what we see.
In addition to being a self-driving concept, the FNR looks like something straight out of the latest CGI-laden science fiction blockbuster. Just check this thing out!
So, you’re probably wondering, what exactly does the FNR do other than looking really freakin’ cool? Well, plenty.
The Chevy FNR Concept is self-driving, as we mentioned, and refers to its cockpit as an “electric mobility capsule” where passengers can sit and watch the world fly by as this electric, autonomous trailblazer traverses the roads.
This concept also features laser-guided headlights, car networking technology, “dragonfly” upwards-opening doors, a roof-mounted radar system, gesture control, swivel seats, and much, much more. This is truly one of the most high-tech prototypes that we’ve seen thus far, and it would put the cars in most of your favorite science fiction movies to shame.
Needless to say, the infrastructure is not yet in place for the Chevrolet FNR to take to the roads, and mass-production is still a ways away – if it ever happens. However, in any case, concept cars like the FNR go to show that insane, futuristic technology is not as far out of reach as you may think.
In fact, the future may be arriving much more quickly than you had ever anticipated.
