2012 LA Auto Show Design Challenge competitors revealed

Article by Christian A., on November 21, 2012

Concept sketches were submitted by various major design studios for the ninth annual LA Motor Show Design Challenge. These studios represent automakers like BMW, GM, Honda, Mercedes-Benz and Subaru. The competition seeks to search for new ideas in automotive design, and permit designers to display their prowess. The theme chosen for this year is a law enforcement patrol car for the year 2025.

The submissions will be judged based on the following criteria: advanced technology, speed and agility, creativity and environmental sensitivity. Some of the designs include an SUV that’s friendly to the environment, the Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force; Honda’s drone motorcycles; and General Motors’ sleek Volt Squad. The winning entry will be named on Nov. 29 at an event on the motor show press day.

The judges include Tom Matano, executive director at San Francisco Art University’s the School of Industrial Design; Stewart Reed, chair of Transportation Design at Pasadena College of Design; and Bruce Meyer, former racer and board member of the California Highway Patrol Foundation.
