10 Innovative Concept Designs of Transport
In this blog, I will present you some really cool concepts design of transport, cars, vans, bikes. The concept of ford car is unveiled actually 10 years ago. When the car was unveiled, consumers weren’t ready for this concept, it was almost universally despised. But back to now, I’m sure you will like it.
So, let’s check those innovative concepts. And here is my world: “there is no limitation to imagination“.
1. BMW Blue Dynamics Concept [link]
BMW Blue Dynamics Land Yacht by designer Stefan Radev, the concept is a wind powered vehicle. It consists of three wheels and a sail. The name “Blue Dynamics” combines a symbolic connection of the wind(air) and BMW “efficient dynamics”, “active hybrid” greener emission programs. The concept has a rigid sail to harness the energy of the wind, and the driver can adjust the sail from the cockpit. Entry to the cockpit is through the concept’s elevating windscreen.
2. Transforming Cargo Concept [link]
Urban traffic congestion is an increasing problem which affects countless delivery companies every day. The unique ‘CarGo’ concept addresses this issue with its variable track, wheelbase and load carrying configurations.
The CarGo has one seat, and can be turned into three modes; a compact mode where the pickup section is placed longitudinally with the cabin, a narrow mode with tilted cargo bay for higher maneuverability and a full pickup mode for larger payloads. And the electric truck’s storage compartment when not in use, can be detached from the vehicle to further reduce the vehicle length.
3. NASA Concept Car Can Spin 360 degrees [link]
NASA Concept Car, has the ability to rotate 360 degrees with extreme ease that in turn enables the car to be driven sideways. The only problem (which would hopefully be taken care off in the future) is the way the head is left outside, where the rest of the body is immersed in the car. The immediate solution could be the use of helmets but then it is supposed to be a car, a confusing automobile future beckons!
4. Ford 021c, ten Years ago Concept Car [link]
The Ford’s 021c Concept Car was unveiled ten years ago! When the car was unveiled, consumers weren’t ready for this concept, it was almost universally despised. But back to now, I’m sure you will like it. It’s built from carbon fiber, it has some interesting features like the rear doors are hinged at the back that four wide opening doors for easy entrance and egress. The trunk functioned as a pull out drawer instead of a lift up lid.
5. Traveling Alone In The Metro [link]
Daisy’s bicycle was built for two, but somehow the future foresees her traveling alone in metropolitan Los Angeles in the year 2015. I’m specific to the date thanks to the Metro Cell Vehicle Concept which is designed specifically for Metro Los Angeles. The infrastructure is thus: Single person semi-private vehicle system called PDD (pickup-drive-drop) will be implemented. With the PDD system, a driver finds a “cellular-mobile stack”, engages a car and uses it within that limited area. Once the commute is done, they simply disembark and the pod goes back to the nearest mobile stack. Kind of like a hop-on hop-off system.
6. Speed Away On Speedway [link]
The idea is to enhance the current limited range and speed of the electric vehicles by putting in a linear motor into the highways. This external propulsion is embedded beneath the pavement and drives the vehicle by a drifting magnetic field. Due to the transfer of the propulsion power for long range drives into the infrastructure, the futuristic car can be lighter and nifty.
Speedway’s interiors transcend between two different shapes and modes effortlessly. In the City-mode, the car becomes compact thus saving space and resolving parking issues. In this mode the seats of the car are upright and elevated to give a better overview. In the Speedway-mode, the aerodynamics of the car optimizes. The front seat turns around and switches to a more comfortable communicative position.
7. Super Green, Super Dangerous, Super Bike [link]
What you’ve got here is a very fast, very dangerous vehicle. It’s called the Halbo, and it’s got a BMW stamp on it. It’s tiny and it’s got a front wheel motor combined with a sphere form rear wheel.
The target user for this vehicle is a “vibrant eco-minded young individual.” Speed on! It’s half the size of the “regular high end motorcycle,” and it’s full name is Halb Organismus. Also it’s electric powered. The front wheel is stationary, while the back… tail… turns left to right. It’s like flying an X-Wing! Or… like a motorboat! But it looks really dangerous to me…
8. Biggest Hugest Tricycle [link]
The Triclo is an innovative tricycle concept, featuring the functionality of a paddling tricycle, while offering the outlook of a futuristic transportation means. This vehicle is designed to make room for one person only and comprises paddles with a convenient sitting arrangement. The Triclo has a steering wheel instead of conventional tricycle handles and an innovative and unique rear wheel setup. It features a shade over the driver that will let the driver protected from the sun and mild rain.
9. Love Affair With London And Lego [link]
Clearly the Volkswagen Conerto Concept Car is inspired by London’s rustic charm and the sustainability of Lego. It’s like dividing a car according to its section or functionality, thus transforming the entire car design. New innovations in the automobile industry make it possible to integrate suspension parts and customize wheel configuration. Moreover using natural materials for finishing the exteriors instead of paint, makes the Lego-brick-like construction whimsical and appealing.
10. Solar Powered Sunflower Jaguar [link]
Jaguar has always been a pioneer in car design. Elegance has also been an integral factor for this prestigious automobile brand. In a time when “Go Green!” is being spoken in every language, Jaguar is smart enough to jump into the bandwagon. Check out the Jaguar Mark XXI, completely powered by solar energy and extremely energy efficient.
The black panels which are photovoltaic cells get activated when the car is parked and uses solar energy to power the vehicle. These cells “lift from the car automatically and face the sun, like the sunflower.” Wow…welcome to the future. A truly-totally green car from designer Christopher Pollard.
