If you are thinking that you have seen anything in the world – just have a look at the Chevrolet-FNR concept.
I bet that you haven’t seen anything like this in the real life.
Beauty, isn’t it?
Futuristic BMW i8 is nothing in comparison with her. Brand-new vehicle created by GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center overshadows any of the existing vehicles (even the self-driving Mercedes-Benz F 015 concept which looks just as wild as the Chevy FNR) and there is no surprise in there.
The Chevrolet-FNR boasts a really unique futuristic capsule design (the only car I could think of is a racing car for “The Tron:Legacy”). It has crystal laser headlights and taillights, dragonfly dual swing doors, magnetic hubless wheel electric motors, wireless auto-charge system and that’s not all.
The Chevrolet-FNR aero design has been made with a special purpose in mind – it is optimized for low drag with braking and propulsion provided by all-wheel-drive magnetic hubless electric wheel motors along with autonomous wireless charging.
Smart technologies in use
The Chevrolet-FNR is loaded with a range of intelligent technologies usually seen only in science fiction movies. They include sensors and roof-mounted radar that can map out the environment to enable driverless operation, Chevy Intelligent Assistant and iris recognition start. The Chevrolet-FNR can also serve as a “personal assistant” to map out the best route to the driver’s preferred destination.
In self-driving mode, the vehicle's front seats can swivel 180 degrees to face the rear seats, creating a more intimate setting. The driver can switch to manual mode through the gesture control feature.
You can’t start the car without it recognizing your eye’s iris. At that point, you can take advantage of the car’s various sensors and roof-mounted radar, which map the surrounding environment and help determine the best route to your destination, along with help from an artificially intelligent personal assistant.
Will it go into production?
We don’t know if the Chevy FNR will go into production, but in the meantime we know something for sure – Chevrolet FNR is one of those cars that catch your eye.
Let’s have a look at some more shots of the car (simply because we’re having trouble getting over just how cool this beauty is) and hope that’ll see the production-ready version of the Chevrolet-FNR in the nearest future.
