2012 LA Auto Show Design Challenge theme is the 2025 highway patrol vehicle

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 11, 2012

The Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge for 2012 is being held in hopes to build the ultimate law enforcement patrol vehicle for 2025. Developing a vehicle for law enforcement is a challenge that may prove to be critical to its mission.

The future highway patrol vehicle needs to be able to patrol the roads well and to effectively "protect and serve.” This means that the vehicle is designed with a totally new set of factors such as advanced powertrains, alternative fuels, telemetrics and new sizes to navigate dynamic urban environments.

This year, several major auto manufacturer design studios, including those from the U.S., Germany and Japan, participated in the challenge. To date, design studios from Bentley, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai and Subaru have risen to the annual design challenge to utilize their innovation and insight.

The winner will be announced on Nov. 29 at an event at the LA Auto Show Press Days. The proposals will be judged according to the following: consideration of future needs for advanced technology, speed and agility on future freeway systems; creativity of the solution; meeting a specific region's emission standards; and environmental sensitivity, including maintenance and recyclability. All of the entries will be seen online in early November at LAautoshow.com.
