One of the highlights of an auto show is watching an array of concept cars rev into the spotlight. These vehicles represent the latest feats in car engineering and are usually characterized in bold colors, cutting-edge features and revolutionary innovations. A concept car is actually an automobile prototype and does not go directly into production from concept model to manufacturing, without undergoing certain changes. Once a concept car has been shown at an auto show, it is destroyed. The few cars that do not make it to the salvage yard are sold to collectors or wind up in car museums. Concept cars not produced en-masse unless the public show a willingness to purchase the car. These cars only make it to production when reactions from the public have been gauged and validated. If the response is unfavorable, these vehicles are either destroyed or sold off to avid car collectors. Here are 3 awesome concept cars that did not make it to the production line but are worth remembering.
In a survey conducted by JD Power, an American firm which conducts comprehensive annual surveys of car owners to see who is happy, and who is not, with their new car, it was found that "the way in which technology is integrated into new car design, especially interior features and controls, is now considered to be as important to car buyers as defects and malfunctions". Additionally Joe Ivers of JD Power says that "New vehicles today are often packed with new technologies that unfortunately can be complicated and frustrating for the average consumer when their integration is not well executed. This could explain why many car buyers have not been keen in the internal design of the car as opposed to external design.
Mock-up Mock up is a stage where the actual design along with its selected colors is put into a 3-dimensional model. This model is created using clay by expert professionals who work together with the designer to understand the concept and give it a form and structure. Interior mock up is done using wood, plastic, metal, fabrics, and various other materials to create a complete design model of the car. This also defines the placement of the feature and the spaciousness in the car interior. The process involves a united approach between the car modeler and the car designer.
