A modular and adaptable vehicle that perfectly suits any adventure on any terrain and has enough room to bring whatever and whomever you want to share your epic adventures with. Where will your adventure take you in 2030?
As car technology advances, autonomy and electric powertrains will become commonplace. My 2030 Chevy idea is to have a car for the people that still love to drive in a world of self-controlled cars. Self-driving could be toggled on or off based on how the driver is feeling. The car will be electric, giving it a powerful acceleration and a low center of mass (battery will be on bottom). The exterior will appeal to car enthusiasts with sleek proportions, and the interior will have everything a car from 2030 should have (i.e. touch screens and a heads up display). I've attached some sketches I've done so far (generally newer work in front), and I'll continue to add more as I get ideas and change things.
When my dad first got his luxury vehicle in Korea, I was hooked into car industry, especially car design industry. I started to admire car designers and cars that are designed well. After then, I began to draw my own cars even though I was not sure how to design proper cars. However, since I tried to draw cars watching lots of other designers' works, I was able to get my own design language for the cars. In terms of my design, my works usually involves lots of curved lines and detailed components, which helps driver or passenger to drive cars more efficiently. I do want to introduce some of my works to mentors for this competition, and learn about how I should design cars using technology (Rendering program: Photoshop, Illustrator, Allias, or Rhino / I will get a new laptop which would make it possible), and get some advices of my work through this competition.
I chose my adventure type to be more like Vehicle Type A because I believe that driving is part of the adventure and I prefer to drive rather than just sitting and enjoying the ride. The setting for my adventure is Setting 1, city because I find more interest in sports cars and the city like settings matches better with the sports cars. I am interested in designing how the Chevrolet Corvette will look after 30 years. I plan on keeping the Corvette’s basic proportion constant and instead focus changing the outer appearances of the car because I believe the Corvette’s current proportion makes it different from other cars which can be a huge advantage. The Chevrolet Corvette in 30 years would be a 2 seater sports car with trendier looks.
This is a three wheeled, solar powered, three person off-road vehicle. The windows serve as the doors, the engine is located in the back, luggage will go behind the seats.
I'm looking to design a zero emissions car with a perfect balance of style, performance, and practicality, for both on-road and off-road adventures. It will be available in two main variants, a regular 4-door edition, and an off road Z71 edition (with enhanced off road prowess and capabilities). Inside, all models will feature the most innovative technologies and materials. All will be partially autonomous, meaning that the driver can switch between autonomous and regular driving modes. Two of the key ideas behind my design are the fully collapsible rear and passenger seats, as well as the long hood on both of the model variants. While the seats maximize practicality, the unique hood captures a timeless styling element (found in many famous Chevy models) in a time when so many cars will have short hoods. Also, with the lack of an internal combustion engine, the area below the hood can be used as a highly practical cargo area. Below are some of the sketches I've done recently for this competition, as well as some of my inspirations.
A vehicle responding to the elements magnifying your spirit of adventure. A vehicle centering around the essence of your adventure. A vehicle supporting your dreams for today and tomorrow.
Driving should be an adventure in itself whether it's blasting down a mountain pass or cruising in the city. Your car should be able to tackle any corner with ease and still be enjoyable and comfortable for both you and your passenger, no matter where your destination may be.
My goal is to design a futuristic pickup truck that provides ultimate comfort, adventure and ruggedness. While most cars in 2030 will probably be autonomous, I still want the driver to be able to drive the car to be immersed in the trip. However, the pickup can be converted to a self-driving car, and turned into a place where the driver can sit back and relax, if he/she desires .
I want to design something unique and extraordinary. My favorite types of cars are supercars and offroad vehicles. I plan to make an offroad supercar
The Chevrolet Coronado, a crossover vehicle, is designed for the ultimate traveling experience. It's ideal for traveling anywhere requiring something tougher than a coupe, yet more luxurious than a truck.
When I was designing this car, terrain driving was the main thing I thought about. I combined the looks of an urban car and an off-road vehicle for speed, capability of driving almost anywhere, and a nice design.
I want to make a 4 door high performance sport saloon gt car that is sort-of like a coupe. It will have two normal doors and 2 suicide doors much like the rx-8. I want it to have a long hood and a sweeping back much like a Datsun 240z. The front of the vehicle is somewhat aggressive and similar to a Camaro crossed together with Gumpert Explosion, while the side is more subtle. This is an enthusiast car and I want to make the experience as raw as possible with either a manual or dual clutch transmission. It would be amazing if it was powered by a twin turbo v-8. However, I think a hybrid performance engine with some sort of forced induction would be another good option. This is a vehicle that is meant to be thrashed at a track as hard as possible but also a good high speed cruiser and canyon carver.
As a future transportation designer, I want to explore an idea that would be unreasonable in other settings not regarding a strictly fun, adventure vehicle. My vehicle would be an anti-gravity concept and would have tracks or be flying that would be designated for mountainous and canyon terrain. It could travel at 180 degrees, to provide an experience that is unattainable by any car on the road today.The entire vehicle would be transparent, allowing the driver a full 360 view. Regarding the fact that my concept is still in early stages and I do not have much content for it, I have also included a few other vehicular renderings I have done in the past.
Cars are meant to be sexy like the human body, and I specialize in sexy females, so I'll bring a new perspective to car design with the background I have.
This also includes other drawings and sketches I have done. As you can see I do a lot of different things. I prefer black and white drawings done with pencil or sharpie.
My goal is to design an adventure vehicle that gives people the ultimate thrill of driving while also being stylish and practical at the same time. My vehicle is intended to be able to aid people with their adventures by carrying whatever materials they may need to carry. Additionally, the vehicle is designed to be able to go off road but still maintain the maneuverability and agility it has on paved road. My inspiration comes primarily from crossover and large SUVs and occasionally from some technologically advanced cars such as the Chevy Volt or BMW i8.
This design incorporates elements of classic luxury and performance cars, combining them with modern features and amenities to create a car that can comfortably transport people in style. This car is designed with elements from the Cadillac Coupe Deville, Ford Crown Victoria, Chevrolet Corvette and Caprice, and the Plymouth Gran Fury. I envision it being a little more aerodynamic than I could draw. The most important thing about the picture though is that it shows a rough design for a luxury car. Obviously, with fuel prices, environmental regulations, and buyer tastes different from the heyday of many of the cars I took inspiration from, it would be necessary to probably have a shorter, more aerodynamic hood, and a more aerodynamic rear. Right now my design for the trunk is mostly a cross between the Cadillac Coupe Deville and Ford Crown Victoria, with some elements of the 1960s Corvette. One feature that is unique is the grille. It is intended to point outwards and be flanked by headlights, like the Coupe Deville, but on a hood shaped more like the Caprice or Crown Victoria. I'm thinking that headlights like the 1980s Kenworth T660 would fit best with the design of the car, because they combined traditional truck headlights, which just stuck out of the fender, with headlights from aerodynamic cars, placing the turn signal on the corner so as to only require one bulb. I'm thinking for the rear that I would like to have Cadillac ATS tail lights for a sedan, or Escalade tail lights for a station wagon. For radio or CB antennas, I think it would look best to center the antenna on the trunk, but with new radio antenna technologies, it will probably be possible to integrate the antenna into the car. The final design is based partly off of the VW Beetle and Porsche 911, which would allow more storage space and a sportier look. I'm also thinking of the possibility to do a rear end similar to that of the Ford Capri MKII or 1970s Chevrolet Nova. Semi-Finals: I thought more about the design of the car, but not only from the perspective of a car enthusiast, but also as an intended user. I decided that two big things that I wanted this car to have were an adjustable ground clearance, and lots of customization. Adjustable ground clearance would let you lower your car when traveling on smooth roads, improving gas mileage, and let you raise your car the the height of a small SUV or possibly pickup truck, thereby allowing you to drive through mud, sand, and snow, and offroads. Additionally I want the car to be powerful enough to tow a boat or camper, and when not towing be capable of accelerating like a BMW or Mercedes. Secondly, I want this car to be customizable. Not just in that you can choose the color and interior, but also modify the exterior. I want to be able to have a very simple, economical base model which you can add features that you desire to. For example, you could add a vinyl top, chrome bumpers, a spotlight, hood mounted mirrors, an exterior visor, spoiler, towing apparatus, etc. to make the car even more versatile and have a greater appeal. I also would want to make "business customizations" available. For example, physicians, bookbinders, computer technicians, or salesmen would be able to drive a car without rear seats, and would likely make a better impression upon their customers than if they were driving a small van or hatchback. I would also want to consider offering the option to remove rear windows, giving the car an uncluttered appearance, even if it is full of work materials. It could also be useful to have the option of dividing the rear area from the front seats, and maybe even offering separate climate control. If a station wagon was produced, instead of just a sedan, business customizations could be offered to convert the vehicle into a delivery van, hearse, or if offered with right side drive and additional mirrors, maybe even postal use, as the USPS is currently looking for a viable and practical way to replace custom built 30 year old trucks.
Here are some files of cars and some that portray moods that I like. A lot of these are also just art that just inspire me to imagine what their color and aspects would look like on a car.
Chevrolet needs a hot hatchback. the car is ready for an adventure in the city. It is the perfect balance of performance and efficiency. Its small size is perfect for parking in the crowed streets but also gives it a gokart feel.
A sleek sports car that utilizes spherical wheel maglev technology. It would be powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The "Quantum" brings a new idea straight from science fiction to reality, and with more practicality than most think. Since this vehicle will use spherical wheel technology, (thanks to Michelin for starting development and renewing my interest in such a technology.) it will be able to move in any direction since the wheels aren't subject to only forwards or backwards thanks to their shape, also with this design there will be no axle. Instead, this vehicle will use magnetic levitation to act as a suspension and to drive the tires. So with this advancement parallel parking could be made much easier and safer too, and it could even be automated. As far as the power source goes, it will use a hydrogen fuel cell system which combines hydrogen and oxygen atoms to create energy, and the only emission.... water. Yep this car literally makes it's own water which could then be recycled and separated back into it's components to increase fuel efficiency.
This two door coupe has equipped with four wheels that are round spheres. This car is planning to driving in city. The one with color is the final piece. It is evolved from sketches and sketches. CityRover will leave its best impression on its coolest design.
I believe what a car needs is dependability, and a distinctive design which inspires a person to get behind the wheel. You can find many unique and interesting shapes that can spark emotion everywhere, but for me, especially in an urban environment. My concept is a car heavily influenced by the city in which it mainly presides in. It appeals to the professional person with either filled schedules or some recreational time. With a self driving feature this car would allow a person to venture through the city with ease, confidence, and in great comfort while still having the tools to do their job, chat with friends or deal with business on the go. Its important for the average working professional to enjoy their time in their personal car so having an atmosphere of safety, reliability, and fearlessness shown with a bold, solid, and a sleek modern design is key to my concept.
I envision an electric car with a unique, modern design, and optional self-driving capability. I plan on designing a sports car with some new aesthetic aspects to give it a futuristic but somewhat familiar feel. So far I've contemplated having the tail lights be one long strip. I also like the idea of incorporating sharp geometric lines into the design. 13 years in the future, hopefully electricity will be on the road (haha) to replacing standard oil based fuel as the main power source for cars. Also, the possibility of more cars with autopilot options is strong. If more vehicles have reliable self-driving capacities, hopefully crash frequency and severity will be minimized.
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to view my presentation. I would like to start out with stating that I have a need for speed, and it’s pretty clear from my pictures. I want to bring a practical family car that has a weekend warrior side to market. Think of all the young fathers that are car guys that are just starting families and can’t own a performance two-seater anymore because it just isn’t practical. What if we were to take something like the new Cruze hatchback and add a performance variant. Something a little lower, leaner, and faster, but still has that practicality of a hatch back. Now for the basic answers to the questions: You drive the car, and its a city(ish) car to be driven on the street (question code A1). Driving the car is supposed to be part of the experience; like the driver and the car are one, working in sync to offer an exhilarating rush without being stupidly fast. The car can hold 5 people, bench seat in the 2nd row and buckets up front. I want to take the dimensions of the Cruze hatchback and tweak them slightly. Same wheelbase and width, but I want to lower it so it rides maybe an inch lower. Something that could be considered innovative is a DOHC turbo v6 with the head flow direction reversed (the exhaust will dump into the V between the cylinder banks which will help to eliminate the turbo lag. Intake runs from the intercooler to an intake manifold on the outside of each cylinder bank, direct injection), CGI block construction with cast iron cylinder liners to save weight, and a paddle shift/automatic dual clutch transmission. I want to have a reliable car that can be driven to work daily and still be fun to drive. Another point I’d like to bring up is to leave some meat on the bone performance wise, so the car can be upgraded and tuned if so desired, but not so much so that there isn't a difference between the base Cruze and this. I want to design for this adventure because I go through it every day. Just driving to school in my 2000 Impala, I’m trying to have fun. Being the first out of a stoplight, being able to cruise comfortably at 70 on the freeway; both of which it can do, but it just needs a little more oomph, and a little more stopping power with a little less body roll, all while dropping a few pounds. This car could potentially be a direct competitor to the Honda Civic Si, which is highly sought after in the tuning world. Lightweight, agile, quick, good tuning potential, good weight balance, low center of gravity, and sporty; The Cruze SS could be all of these (or possibly Cruze Z26?). I want clean, crisp, edgy lines on the exterior. Minimal vents and badges. Mostly Angles that direct the airflow to the few vents there are. I like the look of the 2013 Volt’s tail lights and the overall lines, and would like to incorporate some of its styling into this. LED lighting, bold presence with razor sharp lines. Not boxy and not round, but angular and looking slightly angry. Hopefully this has helped you to envision what I see in my head, and hopefully I will have a computer draft of my design to show you soon!
I hope to create a stunning, sporty, efficient, and practical sedan for the city. I also want the driver to feel connected to the car by driving it and not being driven autonomously.
an American Hyper car Made for speed and taking corners. I enjoy the beauty of the Europeans super cars. However I am a fan of cars made in America. I want this car to be able to go from a cars and coffee straight to the race track and be able to put up a good fight.
Who is my car for, where is it driven or taken, what is it for, when is it used? My concept car(Geneva) is for the enthusiast/ the gearhead (by then they might just be called the motorheads) of 2030 primarily manually operated but can be put in autonomous driving mode at any moment throughtout the journey.My concept is a coupe so there is only enough for four occupants . My concept car has a low clearance ,is agile ,and long so it will have the body of the luxury coupe and the guts of a hypercard , so it is by any means not a off-road adventure car. Luxury / streamline styling with supercar inspired styling cues. Quad electric motors and independant rear steering to enhance performance and agility. Aerodynamics played a big role when designing my concept car as you may be able to see throughout my sketches.The Interior is very technologically advanced with modest and simple yet suave design motifs to besiege the driver in car utopia.
Story I choose A1. The reason I want a self driven car is because I want to feel the car. I want to feel the power of the car. I want to feel the drive of the car. How it handles and how it reacts to many different situations. I also chose B1. The car will be a city sports car. It will be adaptable for families as well as those who seek more adventures. The people I want to direct this car towards are those who are adventurous risk takers. The people that want to stand out from the crowd. I want to bring back the classic Impala. The one with power and was fierce. The one you drove by and knew it was strong. I want to bring it back with an extraordinary V8 engine that has great fuel economy but the power of a V10 engine. I want this car to represent original muscle car power that will blow all other cars away. This car is not meant to just be the soccer mom car but to be able to have the parents have a night out on the town. This is a car for long road trips and those who want to seek out new locations to explore. This car would be available in two and four door options. I want tis car to be the most dependable car on the market. It will have all the amenities of the current day and it will push the envelope for connectivity, convenience, extremely low maintenance, as well as power backup availability that can get you back home in times of serious need.
The Hover Truck combines modern technology with the classic styling of a bygone era. The truck rides on a magnetic cushion using opposing electromagnets located in the four corners of the truck. This allows the truck to go over any terrain without hesitation.
When I heard about this car design competition, I did try to design some sort of cars and I tried a lot. It is actually not that easy if you want to design something great. So I really want to learn this specially skill. I love drawing and designing. Here is one sketch of my car design and some of the art work I did (including a clay tea pot I did last year). Hope you like it. Thank you!
Hello! So these are the pieces due by January 20th! I have drawn out the concept car as i believe that this is what is due, I hope! I have created the Chevy concept car for 2030 and what some cool features in have included are that it have signals on the headlights that are displayed on the road, also the grille have white lines which mean the they are illuminated at night. It is is an automatic driving car, and well as it can sense your body coming near the car and automatically opens the doors for you. The interior is my favorite part is includes a full cabin all around infotainment displaye and the boomerang looking lines show that they move around slowly in a up and down motion. The car can drive itself, And it displays holograms for AC, and heating. As well as heated and ventialated seats. The navigation is as well parnerted up with google earth to indicate where you are from a higher point of view. This vehicle has many options and features that show it serves a right for the future, in my opinion of course.
Here is a rough version of my car design. I am definitely not a car designer, but still wanted to give it a try. This is a pickup truck that seems like, given the current line of truck and car technology, could come out in 2030. It has a touchscreen GPS/control unit in the middle of a table separating two benches. I plan to add more ideas to it, this is simply a starting point. 1/19/17 Update: Here's a roughly colored version of the truck. I like to imagine it being use for vacations and similar things, it seems like it would be a good vehicle for that.
Sleek lines mean the stance and the way it looks under the lights. The car will be aerodynamic and feature air tention system so the car stays down. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1k7xDsRcTgdOb4gUeOZrblcvGzekmZ11u4Aj4HcqZ1qw/pub
Andrea Giselle Chavez, Senior at Skyline High School in the Graphic Design Cluster, Medium Pencil Car of the future inspired by 2D Dimensional shapes such as triangles and squares. My inspiration has shown within the car design of a corvette. I also did research on futuristic cars and tried to make something similar.
A car can hold 1-5 people, the car is not too big. First the car gonna be safe, and it can drive in water(the black line around is the inflatable cushion, so if anything happen that can save the people in the car) and fry(the triangle on the side of the car will push out a wing that make the car can fry). Also the car doesn't use oil, it use battery and it can use more that two days, also on the top of the car, it can use the sunlight to changer the car too. I know the car doesn't look that good but it can use in a lot of ways. One last thing is that the car can't be cost a lot, just a normal price that everyone can be able to pay for it.
So everyone thinks adventure, outdoors off-roading all that, but when I think adventure I want to think of an all american sports car that can easily smoke the competition. I'm talkin' about a car to rival all competition, whether it be by style, speed, or originality, I want a car for somebody who's idea is hitting the Autobahn or taking the car for a spin along the Nurburgring. I want to design The new standard of 'Sports car' maybe even that of a 'Super Sports Car' like say, the Ford GT for example. I find that many things 'futuristic' I' don't like the look of, in fact I'm a big fan of the more angular design of Lamborghinis. I kinda feel like they resemble fighter jets which I'm fascinated with. I want to prove 'Angular' and 'Futuristic' can mesh together perfectly. My end result goal, is a lovable beautiful mean American machine.
This project was designed as a mixture of modern and future concepts. It only carries the essential properties, making it the quintessential car of its kind. It will not disappoint.
