Honda NeuV

The NeuV stands for New Electric Urban Vehicle, and is a concept developed on the fact that privately-owned vehicles sit idle 96% of the time.

The NeuV explores the idea of functioning as an automated ride-sharing vehicle. The NeuV can also sell energy back to the electric gridm when it's not in use.

Honda says the battery-electric NeuV is more of a mobility solution than a car. The NeuV also features HANA (Honda Automated Network Assistant).

Honda says it is an "emotion engine" that will learn from the driver by detecting the emotions behind the driver's judgments and then, based on the driver's past decisions, make new choices and recommendations.

BMW i Inside Future Concept

The i Inside Future concept of BMW features the company's HoloActive Touch that showcases a holographic interface for controlling navigation, infotainment, and communications.

The interface allows the driver to give instructions to the car either via voice or by making certain hand movements. After an input, an ultrasonic source provides tactile feedback without any physical connection between the screen and driver.

The concept also features a futuristic exterior, which is uber-fun to look at. The concept has been showcased without doors and skinny wheels replace the tyres. The signature BMW kidney grille is retained at the front with a modern touch, the rear of the concept gets strips of LEDs that run vertically as taillights.
