You’ve seen a broken down Citroen 2CV turned motorcycle, now check out the Citroen Oli concept, which is supposed to be a Swiss Army Knife-inspired electric SUV. More specifically, this is a multi-purpose everyday extension to your life that is as useful when you aren’t driving, complete with smart ‘Vehicle to Grid’ (V2G) as well as ‘Vehicle to Load’ (V2L) capability for enjoyable driving.
It may be a while until we see MIT’s LEGO-inspired AI chip that can be stacked and reconfigured, but the Intel x Samsung ‘Slidable PC’ concept may be coming sooner than later. Put simply, it consists of a 17-inch screen that can be rolled up partially when not in use by simply pushing on one side.
There’s the self-driving ID.BUZZ robotaxi, and then this autonomous Volkswagen GEN.TRAVEL EV concept, which is touted as a mix between a sedan and MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle). This vehicle is capable of driving autonomously, making the driver a relaxed passenger who has time for other things such as catching up on work or just making a video call.
When DALL-E 2 isn’t being asked to generate the last selfie ever take on Earth, it can be used to design an Apple Car concept, or at least that’s what industrial designer John Mauriello decided to do. For those who don’t know how the AI model works, it basically creates multiple interpretations of the same prompt, and in this case, it was: “minimalist sports car inspired by MacBook”.
Think of the Dacia Manifesto concept as a mini electric Halo Warthog designed to go off-road. The company touts it as a very compact and completely open SUV that puts you in direct contact with nature, complete with a a detachable battery pack with bidirectional charging. Plus, you can remove the headlight and use it as a flashlight torch.
You could turn your Hyundai Accent into a 1969 Ford Mustang, or spend a day with the DeLorean-inspired Hyundai N Vision 74 if you happen to know someone at Top Gear. Power comes from two pressurized 4.2kg hydrogen tanks located under the rear deck, paired with a 62.4kWh battery pack, that generates a combined 670 hp.
The 2024 Lamborghini Aventador reveal couldn’t come soon enough, and that’s why a German tuner decided to render the DMC Revuelto. This Aventador successor will also be a plug-in hybrid paired with a newly developed V12 engine, unlike the Sián FKP 37, which utilizes supercapacitor technology.

Automotive designer Maximilian Schneider is quite familiar with supercars after working at Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen, so it’s no surprise that he has a few ideas for a potential Tesla hypercar. Called the Tesla X SpaceX Model R, this concept builds upon the upcoming second-generation Tesla Roadster and adds a glass cockpit, along with downforce boosters.
Now that you’ve seen the DeLorean Alpha5 EV, the DeLorean Omega 2040 concept previews what an all-electric, Baja off-road race car from the company would look like. It was made to celebrate mobility and driving, representing the next-generation of DeLorean’s design philosophy as a complete departure from traditional automotive design.
