AutoComplete: Chevrolet FNR-X concept rocks good looks, hybrid powertrainPlus: Lexus debuts a refreshed NX, and Renault envisions Formula 1 in 2027.
Here's what's making news on roadshow. Chevrolet's hot new concept is believe it or not a hybrid crossover and it just made its global debut in Shanghai. The FNRX concept blends an aggressive front end with a crossover body. It's got a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, suicide doors and a whole load of sensors for a highly automated driver assistance system. It's the best looking crossover Chevrolet has ever shown. Now let's just hope they actually build the thing. Shanghai isn't all about future concepts, though. Lexus used its time to debut a refreshed version of the 2018 NX luxury crossover. There are some small exterior adjustments, but under the skin there's a new adaptive suspension, higher amperage USB ports and better noise mitigation. Lexus's suite of active and passive driver assistance systems are now standard as well. If you're wondering what the future of formula 1 will look like, look no further than the Renault RS 2027 vision concept. Renault's idea of formula one a decade from now features some sensible improvements like a proper cockpit and an improved fan interaction but also gets a little weird with things like electric only driving in the pit lane, an autonomy that kicks in under caution If Formula One does even half of this in 10 years color me excited, find more on these stories and more over at TheRoadshow.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow.
