Renault Kwid Concept

If you've ever been driving along in your car and wished for a better vantage point to see the road ahead, your dream is (nearly) a reality, thanks to the Renault Kwid Concept. This bizarre-looking two-wheel-drive, dual-clutch 1.2-liter turbocharged buggy channels the look of an off-roader, and has one important feature — an aerial drone that docks on the rear portion of the roof, flying above the car as it drives. Able to be piloted automatically or manually, and controlled from a built-in tablet in the dashboard, you can use the drone to survey traffic, take aerial photography, or just confuse passers-by. Just make sure not to fly it manually while you're actually driving.

  • Audi Allroad Shooting Brake Concept

    The guys behind the Audi Allroad Shooting Brake Concept ($TBA) like to think that it represents the near future of automotive technology — and if trends are any indication, they're probably right. The car is powered by three motors: a gas-powered two-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, and an electronic motor in each axel. The gasoline engine and front electronic motor work in tandem for hybrid drive functionality that's capable of up to 123 miles per gallon, while accelerating to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds. And when driving conditions get tricky, whether in light off-road conditions or slippery roads, the rear electronic motor will engage, giving it all-wheel-drive and some added torque.

  • Volvo Concept XC Coupe

    Concept cars are always fun, but they're even better when they portend a potential production car. Possibly foreshadowing the replacement for the XC90, the Volvo Concept XC Coupe ($TBA) is one of the latter, featuring only two doors but a full four seats. As with most concepts, details on the inner workings — such as the engine, transmission, and acceleration — are thin, but the car does boast 21-inch wheels, a floating grille, headlights with T-shaped light guides, orange details, matte rubber moldings, and underbody skid plates. The overall design was influenced by modern sports equipment, including the protective gear of Swedish company POC — which should come as no surprise, given that Volvos are as well-known for their safety as for their performance.
