We live in innovative times with one thing constantly being developed – the vehicles we drive. Innovation has always been a vibrant force in the vehicle industry and progressively car manufacturers can’t afford to sit back, and watch competitors “drive” ahead.
Here are some of the most innovative cars created over the past years:
Volvo XC90 SUV
The Volvo XC90 SUV’s dashboard is dominated by a huge touchscreen panel that is similar to a large intuitive iPad, which controls most of the car’s functions.
Toyota Mirai Saloon
Toyota is branching out to a possible future power source: hydrogen. The Mirai generates power for its electric motor by mixing hydrogen with oxygen and emits only harmless water vapour. The technology is currently in the early stages of development and therefore extremely expensive.
Tesla Model S Hatchback
The Tesla Model S Hatchback is a luxurious hatchback with outstanding design and age-defining performance. It has been created as a truly desirable machine; a magnificent vehicle that puts a multitude of ethereal technology at your fingertips.
Renault Twingo Hatchback
While the Renault Twingo Hatchback is a similar size to the Volkswagen up!, its layout is very different – the Twingo places its 0.9 or 1.0-litre petrol engine below the boot floor. It also has a very distinct driving appeal, with the engine noise coming from behind the backseat passengers.
Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
Hyundai is the first vehicle to be presented with an all-electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid propulsion. It can be considered as a true alternative to the Toyota Prius – although with a more conventional design. The Ioniq Electric offers a real indication of a future where cars like this are the exception and not the rule. It may even become ‘iconic’.
