What do you know about the Chevrolet FNR Concept?

April 22, 2015

Chevrolet have revealed a new concept car at this year’s Shanghai Auto Show called the ‘FNR’.

Self-driving cars have become a lot more interesting all of a sudden. Chevrolet (from General motors’) have taken the wraps off their self-driving electric FNR concept car that was designed in Shanghai by the company’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC). It looks like something you’d see in a science fiction movie!

The car represents a glass capsule, with crystal laser headlights and taillights, dual-swing “dragonfly” doors and magnetic hubless wheel electric motors. The car uses self-driving electric mobility and its wheels have magnetic hubless electric motors embedded inside. It also features a wireless charging system.

“The aim was to create a unique and intelligent vehicle for tomorrow’s younger consumers by utilizing innovative car networking technology” says Chevrolet.

The car cannot start without recognising your eye’s iris. You can also take advantage of the car’s various sensors and roof-mounted radar which maps the surrounding environment and helps determine the best route to your destination. The seats can swivel 180 degrees which makes it easier to have a conversation with passengers in the back seats. The car also allows you to steer yourself with gesture control.

Chevrolet says the FNR is loaded with a range of intelligent technologies usually seen only in science fiction movies.
