Thought the year, I wrote about some interesting cars that were ridiculously innovative. For the survey, I listed them down for you to vote. Here are the results:
The Model X is Tesla’s third major car, after the Roadster and the Model S. The Model S defines how electric cars should be - from the high capacity, fast charging battery to the insane 17” touchscreen display that replaces all knobs and buttons and adds a more functionality to the dash. The Model X takes these features, and adds to it a larger, more spacious cabin and some really well designed “falcon wing" doors, and of course, the "bioweapon defence mode". Essentially, you are getting a car that is fast, easy to maintain and really, really safe to be in. I’ve covered all these features in detail in this article about the Model X, so read on!
With 21% votes comes the Koenigsegg Regera.
The thing is, it is a hybrid. The 5 litre twin-turbo V8 produces 1100 bhp, while the 3 electric motors add 700 bhp more to it. By no means is this a practical car; but it still is far more efficient that the rambling Agera RS. Fun fact: unlike the Agera, the Regera has no gear box!
The Regera translates to “To Reign” in Swedish, and it sure does. This limited edition car truly shows the power of a hybrid vehicle.
I’ve written about the Regera in this article.
Finally, let us talk about the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion.
Personally, this car made most impact on me this year. The F 015 takes imagination to the next level: it is hard to even think of a car that looks like that, drives itself, has the most unique interior layout and is hundred percent electric. I’ll leave it to the pictures to explain this car to you. I’ve written about this car here.
The cars in the list are truly inspirational, bringing the best of technology, design and sustainability into one cover. And I? I can’t even wait to drive (or be chauffeured by) them.
