A team of students which worked closely with the people from BMW was asked to create a BMW for 2015. The result is the BMW ZX-6 Concept. This car can’t be compared with any other concept car made by BMW. The BMW Z X6 is a simple car, but with a very aerodynamic design. This car would also be an amphibian vehicle. The whole design of the BMW ZX-6 Concept is pretty futuristic for anyone’s taste, but it can also be very appealing. The doors have an amazing opening system, something that was never seen before. Many people can’t believe that we have the technology to build a vehicle like the BMW ZX-6 Concept and that it could transform from a dream into a real car in a few years.

Designer Pierre Sabas has created the Airflow concept car, featuring an electric engine and suspension system enveloped in a stunning all-​​glass body. He is the winner for best concept, Pierre Sabas, placed both the electrically driven engine and suspension in the wheel, this leading to a high degree of architectural freedom. Inside, the car is made of glass and has 4 capsules for the passengers. “I’ve tried to wrap glass around like fabric”, says Sabas. It allows for a new driving sensation and it gives the occupants a new perception of the outside world.

Conceptualized by Mihai Stamati, this solar powered car is big enough to allow four to five folks to ride comfortably. The roof is plastered with solar panels that juice up this spacious green vehicle. Steer it comfortably by a joystick and a few other control buttons on the front. This solar powered van is fitted with ergonomical seats and a table at the rear. With two motors on the rear, it can move at a slow speed, less than 30 kph, when extended. Users can hop in and out of this futuristic van via sliding doors.

7. Stackable Car

Imagine a shopping cart – a vehicle that can stack – you can take the first vehicle out of a stack and off you go,” says Mr Chin. “These stacks would be placed throughout the city. A good place would be outside a subway station or a bus line or an airport, places where there’s a convergence of transportation lines and people. According to the engineers the concept vehicle will not have a traditional engine. Instead the vehicle’s power will reside in the wheels themselves plus they will provide “omnidirectional” movement. By placing the motors in the wheels it removes the need for a drive shaft and engine block, thus enabling the use of the freed space. The prototype is already under construction

6. Magnet Car

Declared as one of the most eco friendly cars, this car overcomes the force of gravity through the strategic use of an electric engine. Matúš procháczka finds an unusual solution to the problem of, expending fuel to get somewhere. rather than finding a different fuel source, or building a smaller car, he ingeniously reduces the weight of the car by using an electric engine with magnets the same polarity as the roads, the resulting upward force lightens the vehicle’s weight by 50%. another innovative touch is the desing of the seats: two outer layers, pile yarn, and a soft construction foam make it possible to adjust the final hardness and spring characteristics of the seat. this lightweight, adaptable seating not only cuts down on waste during construction and the overall weight of the vehicle while being driven, it also sounds pretty darn comfy.

Nereus should easily make it to any sci-fi flick with ease. Its amazing sense of balance and grace with its aggressive look that echoes raw power make it magnificent beast for the future. While the designer believes Nereus is like a chameleon, it does a lot more than change color. It changes its shape, dynamics and sheer body language to convey the speed and movement it has to offer. It is much like a physical transformation that is reflected in its shape. The vehicle is akin to a living object that shows its ‘mood’ very clearly with its posture. Nereus may not even really need a road to travel.

4. Noah Car

South Korean designer Jung Hoon Rhee is concerned that our health is being compromised by the rigid seating position in cars. His Noah concept incorporates ‘wave seats’, which duplicate the lightness of being immersed in water. He says: ‘They can cope with various body sizes from infants to obese people providing equal comfort everywhere. He focused on ergonomics and preferred to eliminate the rigid seating position and reduced the car weight by being just carried away by the use of electromagnetism causing the car to float away just like the bullet trains. Noah car would give the occupants the sensation they are light and carried by the water.

3. Nissan Pivo

This weird looking vehicle owns some nifty technologies, changing the way we interact with the car. One of them is the ability to turn the cabin around in the direction you are driving, making parking a pleasure. And yes, the car can drive sideways. To make this driving experience work they integrated an ‘Around View Monitor’ which constantly generates a 360-degree view of the car’s surroundings on the dashboard. But what makes it really interesting for Johnny is the way you interact with your navigation system, audio player and other technology. At Nissan they came up with the “Magic 4″ concept, which is a new type of interface. You simply have to point your finger at the IR system or node to use the controls.

2. Bentley SenseS

Rather than being a car, it acts more like your loyal steed and becomes a part of your daily drive. The concept is near to the movie Avatar where the Navi’s can make bond with their animals. Designed by Arturo Peralta, the SenseS attempts to make a connection with its driver and in course of time recognize him and understand all his feelings and emotions. It aims to integrate the driver and his vehicle as one with the help of genetic engineering, biotechnology and artificial intelligence. The concept car is unique and special and is custom crafted to match the needs of each individual user. The car grows and learns along with its driver and becomes a machine that recognizes the needs, emotion and feelings of its driver without any external assistance.

On the contrary, if the exterior is like a drawing board waiting for an artist to weave his magic, who wouldn’t want to customize the car. MOY Concept gives you that option of taming the exterior customization. The contest winner, MOY concept car was designed by Elvis Tomljenovic received first price in contest held during auto(r) automotive design conference in Zagreb, Croatia. Vehicle is powered by batteries that charge electro motors set in wheels and controlled by drive-by-wire technology.

Aimed for those people who love to use latest technology as a way to communicate with others and express themselves. This concept will allow you to design your car on your PC and then affect the design to your vehicle via wireless data transfer. Using a body made out of polycarbonate layers, liquid crystals, LEDs and a chromic film, MOY can display both static images and videos for the exterior. You even have downloading options available if you are confused about the content you wish you display. What more can you ask for from a car tipped as the future of customization.
