Article by Christian Andrei, on May 10, 2016

With the rise of electric vehicles (EVs), self-driving cars, and touchscreen displays, it is without a doubt that the future that we’ve only imagined years ago is here. Who would have thought this early, we get to see the existence of powerful driving experience backed by state-of-the-art innovations?

That being said, what do you think cars would be like 10 years from now? The possibilities are endless and blow our minds. Here are some of the high-performing concepts today that might be tomorrow’s common elements on both the road and race tracks.

BMW Vision Next 100 Concept

The BMW Vision Next 100 Concept is a unique commemoration of both the carmaker’s past and future. BMW seeks to envision the future while celebrating its 10 decades in the industry.

According to BMW Designer Karim Habib, the interior of the models under this limited edition series comes with recyclable plastics, cashmere wool, and synthetic microsuede.

The dashboard doesn’t display anything other than “Alive Geometry” fluttering triangles. Only 100 vehicles will be released, each of which will be powered by a cutting-edge 6.6-liter V12 engine.

Tesla Model 3

Tesla is at the forefront when it comes to developing EVs. For the first time ever, the company has recently launched an affordable EV, Tesla Model 3. With this, Tesla is making EVs more viable and practical for day-to-day driving.

Do not be mistaken because its cheap tag price does not come with compromised features. The car industry is hopeful about the Tesla Model 3 because it just might be what the EV technology needs to become fully accepted in the mass market. The future no longer seems so distant and hard to reach for battery-powered vehicles.

Toyota Prius

Toyota has just set a new Guinness World Record earlier this month for having the most number of hybrid cars in a parade with the Toyota Prius. The carmaker’s latest offering features a unique and powerful 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine, two generators, and a variable transmission.

With a carefully designed core, the Toyota Prius delivers as much as 121 hp. Moreover, the Toyota hybrid has a fuel efficiency rating of 58 mpg and 53 mpg for city and highway respectively. Truly enough, with Toyota’s dedication, the future is here and now.

Pagani Huayra

The Pagani Huayra is widely recognized for its carbon-titanium tub. Its interior is also made of fine materials such as carbon-fiber and brushed aluminum. With the use of lightweight materials, the Pagani Huayra just weighs 1,350 kg.

As a result of detailed engineering, the twin-turbo, 6.0-liter AMG V12 engine delivers an output of 730 hp and a torque of 730 lb.-ft.

Furthermore, the Pagani Huayra is one of the very few sports cars that do not feature a dual-clutch gearbox. As experts put it, driving experience will never be the same again with the Pagani Huayra and its capabilities.
