Chevy's new autonomous concept, the FNR, was unveiled at the Shanghai auto show.
The FNR is a design exploration into how we might experience autonomous cars of the future.
This vehicle uses hubless wheels, over-sized and with extremely low-profile tires. The front uses a nearly open-wheel design.
Chevrolet specifies that the FNR would have electric motors at each wheel.
A large transparent canopy covers the car, giving passengers a wide view of the outside world.
Chevrolet notes that a radar module on top of the FNR would map the environment for autonomous driving.
Chevrolet refers to the "dragonfly dual swing-doors" on the sides of the vehicle.
With the doors open, there is only a narrow beam over the top of the car.
These rear seats look designed for light weight, with a headrest that would seem uncomfortable.
Panels around the cabin let front and rear passengers get entertainment and information.
In autonomous mode, the seats can swivel around, making the FNR a conversation lounge.
Chevrolet has not shown much in the way of driver controls for the FNR.
A panel across the dashboard lets front passengers see entertainment and driving information when under manual control.
Strictly a concept car, the FNR is an exploration of what cars of the future may be like.
Autonomous technologies and electric propulsion systems are already well-developed, making the FNR a feasible idea.
Laser headlights and taillights fitted to the FNR are another new technology currently being developed in the automotive market.
