Humanity has overcome the path from horse-drawn carts to gasoline cars. What’s next? Nissan has presented its version of the future without gas stations at the International Geneva Motor Show. Instead use of petrol, eco-friendly electric cars powered by renewable energy will remotely recharge and perhaps fuel our homes. Recycled old car batteries will also be used.
Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nissan Europe Paul Wilcox says: “Technology provides answers to many of the questions that our cities face today. True power lies in the mutual unification of technologies and the world around us.”
The company has prepared a video illustrating its vision:
Here are some more futuristic inventions originated in the automotive industry. These innovations, like the cars of which they are part, will help humanity make a breakthrough in energy, technology and design.
Hydrogen engine cars emit carbon dioxide, which causes global warming. The exhaust consists exclusively of water vapor. Although the energy efficiency of cars is high, they still remain too expensive: Toyota Mira costs 57.5 thousand dollars, and the updated Honda Clarity will cost the buyer 67 thousand dollars. The rarity of hydrogen fuel filling stations also hinders sales.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2017 is equipped with the Remote parking pilot option, which allows the car to self-park and drive up to the owner on command from a smartphone. Drive Pilot function allows the car to drive independently on the highway at a speed of up to 200 km / h.
A new concept from Buick – Avista — acquired hidden touch door handles. Avista glass roof is a very popular solution. FFZERO1 developed by Faraday Future and the new Chevrolet Bolt can boast of them. Another innovation is the lightweight, more aerodynamic design of the new Ford GT. LED lights not only look great, but also shine better.
Better sound systems, coupled with the management of information and entertainment centers, sensory steering wheels, printed on 3-D car interior and ion air purifiers are innovations that will make future cars more comfortable.
