General Motors made a debut at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show with a very futuristic model, the 2015 Chevrolet FNR Concept. Since the company is celebrating its 10th year of business in China, this was their way to celebrate it. The Chevy FNR Concept isn’t made to come into production any time soon, but to show potential customers what can they expect and look forward to in the future from this company. Even in terms of a technology they talk hypothetically. GM had done a great job, just imagine a car like this gliding along the roads.
2015 Chevrolet FNR Concept Design
As you can see from the photos, the exterior design of the 2015 Chevrolet FNR Concept is absolutely amazing. The body is dappled with all sorts of LED lighting, providing a spectacular visual experience, so no one can remain indifferent. There is no doubt that the highlight features of this concept are the so called dragonfly doors and the hubless magnetic wheel motors. The design of the doors makes this concept absolutely fabulous. Both the front and rear ends feature the crystal laser headlights and taillights.
The thing about these lamps is that they are actually featured on some European production cars, but since the design of this concept is really futuristic, years and years away from production possibility, this new light technology looks almost old on it. On the roof, the manufacturer puts a terrain-mapping radar system, which is designed to provide superior autonomous driving capabilities to the FNR Concept.
When it comes to the interior design, it is equally amazing and futuristic as the exterior design, looking like a cockpit of a space aircraft. The seats have mesh look and they don’t seem very comfortable, reminding more of the uncomfortable garden chair. One interesting thing is that front seats can be rotated by 180°. As you can probably notice from the photos, there is no steering wheel inside the 2015 Chevrolet FNR Concept. The company has imagined it as an autonomous, self-driving car.
The automaker actually says that a manual mode exist, but still it is not clear how that would work. The steering wheel and instrument cluster are replaced with a dashboard with one long and curved screen. This large touch display should provide various sorts of internet functions and gesture commands. The potential owner would start the electric car by letting it scan its irises. How great is that.
Under the Hood, Specs
Well, there is not much to say about the drivetrain of the 2015 Chevrolet FNR Concept, since the manufacturers don’t like to go into details when they talk about autonomous electric concept car drivetrains. So far, the only thing that it is known about what’s under the hood of this concept is that it is the electricity that makes it go. We don’t know how much horsepower is needed to run this car nor any other specs.
FNR Concept Production, Release Date
The thing with the most of the futuristic concept cars is that we don’t know if they will ever be released. One of the reasons why companies make concept cars are to get us excited and see what the future can bring to us from a certain brand. No things are different with the 2015 Chevrolet FNR Concept, which has an amazing and advanced interior and exterior design. The only flaws of this concept certainly are the seats that look very uncomfortable, even if we take into consideration the low standards of concept cars. That mesh look really doesn’t seem much comfortable. Also, it is not known how this car should work only with manual mode. Still, Chevy can be really proud, because they have done a great job. It is still very exciting to imagine the day to see a car like this on the roads.
