General Motors has unveiled the Chevrolet-FNR autonomous electric concept at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. The concept, which was developed by GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center is a glimpse of the future with its futuristic capsule design and autonomous driving technology.
GM’s engineering, design and electrification teams drew on their past experience developing electric concept vehicles. Their aim was to create a unique, intelligent vehicle for tomorrow’s younger consumers by utilizing innovative car networking technology. In addition to its futuristic capsule design, the Chevrolet-FNR features crystal laser headlights and taillights, dragonfly dual swing doors, magnetic hubless wheel electric motors and a wireless auto-charge system.
The Chevrolet-FNR is filled with new technologies, like 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.
