The autonoMe concept is a lightweight, ‘wearable’ three-wheeler – a modular design built around a swappable power pack that makes commuting fun. Gallardo cites Porsche and Tesla as companies he admires, but he believes future mobility solutions will rely less on branding. javiergallardo91@gmail.com

This self-driving, electrically powered, omni-directional carriage maximises space inside while retaining an elegant external form. The Panorama concept encapsulates future thinking, ‘free from the idea of a car being a metal cage with a front and a rear’, de Graaff says. degraaffdesign.com

‘We are creating the future of mobility from a blank sheet – it’s a dream to be a car designer now,’ says Pressler. His autonomous Bugatti Type A concept examines how the luxury brand could adapt to a digital future. The car evolves the classic Bugatti style, harking back to racers of the 1930s. nico.pressler@web.de
