Adaptable Chevrolet FNR-X concept debuts in Shanghai


Designed as a successor to the wild FNR sport concept shown in Shanghai two years ago, Chevrolet has used the 2017 edition of the Chinese automotive showpiece to unveil the crossover flavoured FNR-X.

While not as radical as its predecessor, the still futuristic concept, its name standing for Find New Roads Crossover, boasts a sharper iteration of the bowtie's current design language, while its digital LED headlamps and full LED tail lamps are claimed to have been derived from the mortise and tenon joint used in traditional Chinese woodwork.

Featuring a set of suicide doors that can be opened and closed remotely, the minimalist interior includes a Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) dynamic display system, customisable information displays, unique intelligent voice recognition system, seats mounted on multi-purpose rails with fixed components for improved storage space, and hexagonal design textures Chevrolet claims were inspired by graphene crystal structures.

In addition to a "highly autonomous driver assistance" system, the FNR-X's panoramic roof is equipped with an augmented reality Heads-Up Display offering a 270-degree view to "maximise safety and driving pleasure".

Powered by a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that can alter between the petrol and electric motor in either Versatility or Sport modes, the FNR-X also boasts adaptable suspension and aerodynamics, with the latter consisting of the front and rear spoilers, active grille shutters and switchable wheel blades.

It however remains unconfirmed if the FNR-X will became a production reality soon.
