The concept cars that will bring us to the future are packed with sheer awesomeness. At present, different manufacturers have already revealed what the future looks like in terms of what technologies they will pack into upcoming cars. If we were to describe them, they are simply “high-tech.” They possess technologies so advanced that some may seem more like a dream than a reality.
Some of these concept vehicles have innovations more advanced to the ones found in your home. Futuristic stylings, unique designs, voice technology, driverless capability, connected driving, and more – these are just some of the things we can expect from these futuristic vehicles. In addition to these, environment-friendly features are also coming into these machines. Soon enough, driving a car will no longer have any negative impact on the environment.
On top of these, hopefully, the future of cars will not only make driving even faster but safer as well. Inside and outside, these cars perfectly demonstrate what is in store in the world of motoring. We show here some of the most innovative concept cars that will make any owner a trend setter rather just some who sticks to the trend.
15. Rolls-Royce Vision 100
The epitome of luxury, Rolls-Royce knows how to be exceptional, especially when it comes to the future of cars. As part of the centenary celebration of its parent company, BMW, Rolls-Royce revealed the Vision 100. This concept car is the visual display of how the luxury car manufacturer sees 20 to 30 years ahead in the automotive world. The Vision 100 shows opulence and sophistication. If ever it gets produced, it will definitely set a high bar for luxury cars. Rolls-Royce perceives this car to be completely driverless. Hence, it doesn’t have any front seats or access to the steering wheel. It just offers a comfortable backseat sofa made from luxury silk. It can seat two passengers. Opposite the sofa is a huge OLED TV.
14. Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion
More than just offering a completely autonomous ride, the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion uses a plug-in hydrogen fuel cell and two electric motors to guarantee zero emissions when driving it. Mercedes-Benz claims that theoretically, the car has a capability of rocketing from standstill to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds. Moreover, the car brand said that it can run 1100 kilometers before needing a fill-up. The F 015 is branded as Luxury in Motion due to the plethora of advanced technologies being put on it.

12. BMW Vision Next 100
Joining the Rolls-Royce Vision 100 in celebrating BMW’s centenary, the Vision Next 100 is the mother brand’s take on the future of cars.

It also displays what luxury bespoke cars will look like in the future. According to BMW, the Vision Next 100 is a “blend of coupé-type sportiness and the dynamic elegance of a sedan.” Like the Rolls-Royce Vision 100, BMW’s version will be autonomous, giving the passengers more freedom. Additionally, it will come with iconic doors that swing up and down. The tires are seamlessly integrated with the car. Moreover, the windshield has a display that allows the passenger to navigate along the way.
11. Toyota Concept-i
A car you have a tight relationship with, the Toyota Concept-i has more than just autonomous driving and scissor-hinged doors. This car comes with artificial intelligence (AI) system that will answer to almost all your needs. It has sensors all over to monitor the driver’s emotions and attention. It also tracks geographic locations and road conditions in the vicinity. Although autonomous, Toyota recognizes that some may have the desire to drive on their own so the Concept-i still has a steering wheel, accelerator, and brake pedal. The car has a user interface named Yui. The system can display information on the car’s bodywork, exterior door panels, and rear end. Yui also has access to the car’s interior, showing important information across the car’s dashboard.

Aside from its driverless capability, it has a gesture-controlled display that can even tell when the traffic light is turning green. It has a huge 5K widescreen display inside that has voice and gesture control. Moreover, the Oasis can be owned or shared with other riders through a ride-hailing app. Rinspeed claims that the electric vehicle can attain a top speed of up to 80 mph and can accelerate to 60 mph in 9.7 seconds. A unique feature on this card that suits the Oasis name is that it has a space behind the windshield for a garden which Rinspeed describes as “enough space for growing radishes or even little Bonsai trees.”
9. Nissan’s Teatro for Dayz
Many consider the Nissan Teatro for Dayz as one of the most ridiculous futuristic car concepts we have around. Aside from its name, its features are somewhat silly for many. For instance, one of its most iconic features is that it allows the owner to splash the seats with different designs like leopard skin, grass, or even retro patterns. Moreover, you can play RPG across virtually the entire interior of the car. It is an electric vehicle with style and it is Nissan’s take on convincing non-hardcore car fans to take interest in the brand. Apparently, Nissan Teatro for Dayz serves as a canvas for an artistic driver looking for a futuristic car to get someday.
8. Terrafugia TF-X
The Terrafugia TF-X takes futuristic cars to a whole new level… literally. The company claims that it will soon start building cars that can fly. The TF-X comes with fold-out wings and helicopter-like rotor blades that will allow it to soar in the sky. Theoretically, the futuristic concept vehicle will have a cruising speed of around 200 mph. Terrafugia revealed that an unmanned prototype will be released by 2018. If this car concept pushes through, it will be the biggest solution to traffic. However, as a new concept, safety is a big issue. Still, Terrafugia assures that tons of testing will be done to guarantee that the TF-X is a car that is safe to fly.
7. Audi h-tron quattro
On the outside, the Audi h-tron quattro may look like a typical SUV. Sporty and expected to perform well, it carries the appearance of an everyday sports utility vehicle. However, what is futuristic about this car is how it works. It is not merely an electric vehicle, but it is the only car known to run on hydrogen solely. Hence, it operates cleaner with guaranteed zero emissions. According to Audi, the h-tron quattro can run 372 miles on hydrogen alone. Due to its source of power, it guarantees quite driving. Still, it is a performer with an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds. It has a top speed of 124 mph. Although Audi has revealed the car on auto shows, they have not confirmed anything about mass producing it.
6. Lexus LF-FC
Redefining luxury, the Lexus LF-FC is an incredible car of the future. This hybrid car carries a holographic interface on its center console that has gesture control. With just a wave of your hand, you can control the audio system or ventilation system.

Although not really a car, the Panasonic Autonomous Cabin is a concept that the brand dreams of seeing in future cars. When you hear Panasonic, you may not immediately think of a car product, but apparently the company is doing its research in this field. The Panasonic Autonomous Cabin appears more like a motorhome than a car. There is a table installed inside the cabin, which is not for dining because it is a four-panel interactive digital display system, serving up entertainment, information, productivity software and more. In this product, Panasonic is also exploring augmented reality, personal audio zones, and facial recognition for motoring products.
3. Porsche Mission E
An upcoming Tesla competitor, Porsche Mission E is an all-electric vehicle with high-end performance and massive plug. This means that it can cover a lot of ground on a single charge. Porsche claims that the Mission E can drive a 310-mile distance before it needs a fill-up. It boasts an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in a record of 3.5 seconds.
