Chevrolet's FNR Concept Car - A Shame it's Driverless

This is the FNR Concept car from Chevrolet. It is supposed to offer a "glimpse at the mobility of the future", according to GM.

It's a beautiful creation, with sharp lines, combined with futuristic curves. It looks like something straight out of a science fiction film.

It's electric powered, and full of sensors. Which is a shame in a way. The car is designed to provide a look at what autonomous driving could be, but this vehicle is so cool it's a shame it is designed to drive itself. Who wouldn't want to actually "drive" this car?

It has wireless charging, and hubless wheels. It seems "less" will be "more" in the future.

The Chevrolet FNR has a roof mounted radar, and sensors that "map our the environment to enable driverless operation". It also has Chevy "intelligent assist" to map out routes while you work on daily tasks, make calls, or text. It's a car that Chevy hopes will help them connect with a whole new generation of automotive consumers, in a way that will help provide a map to future products that may eventually find their way into showrooms, and onto roads. This car was introduced a year ago for the first time, just ahead of the current wave of "autonomous driving hype" that hit car shows in 2015/2016, proving that GM and Chevy are right in step with the times, and maybe even a little ahead of some competitors.
