Futuristic Cars that are not Unrealistic
Futuristic cars are something that we all dream of or imagine, be it practical or not. We tend to imagine futuristic cars as unrealistic as possible in comparison to our existing technologies. Many of the futuristic cars are just concerts, so millionaires tend to buy a Lamborghini instead of any car that claims to be futuristic. But, there are some great concepts that can become mainstream in the near future instead of a thousand years. These cars are practical and still boast realistic features that makes them truly something that you can buy soon.
The Sony Vision S is a car with futuristic looks, design and engineering. The main attraction of this car is that it has future ready intelligence, connectivity and simplistic design that is practical and also something that may hit the road soon. With its current prototype, Sony claimed to have tested it on the test tracks with 5G connectivity and other things. It claimed to reach 240 km per hour with 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds. Although the acceleration is not awe worthy, it is not meant to be that kind of car. As I said, it is a smart car with focus on AI and connectivity. Part of the AI feature is its safety feature that comprises 33 sensors all made by sony.
With all these sensors, it can detect the nature of other cars and driving patterns and also notice lane changes and change of pattern of other vehicles. It can suggest you change lanes only if it is safe enough. When parking, the system detects surrounding conditions such as pedestrians, other vehicles and map information, and can automatically park while recognizing obstacles.
The interior of this car is also interesting. It has a dashboard that extends from right to left side of the front interior. The side mirror feeds can be observed from the same dashboard and the passenger can enjoy some entertainment from their own side. Sony aims to solve one major hiccup of self driving cars, and that is safety. With their current testing, they want to make sure that the Sony Vision S becomes the safest self-driving car in the world.
The design of Mark Zero is similar to cars that we already have like Ferrari GT with sporty touches. But it’s like no other existing electric cars. Piëch claims to release this car in the market within 2022 but we have to see if they can deliver what they promised. The main attraction of this car is how fast it can charge. Here me out, they claim that this car can fill up its battery 80% within 5 minutes! 5 minutes! That is less than the time it takes me to drink a cup of coffee! Now, if they can do it within double the promised time, we won’t complain. Because that is impressive. It can deliver 311 miles of mileage with that amount within just 5 minutes of charging time!
This car also promises continued software and hardware upgrade over time so you can continue using it for a long time. This is essential because electric cars should contribute to less e-waste. And with those high sticker prices, they better deliver.
We all know about Tesla Cybertruck. It looks like the designers were unable to draw or produce curves and were forced to use sharp angles. The truth is, Tesla thought it would be uncommon and unconventional and they have gone with this design. And this has actually become a good thing for Tesla. They got huge PR impressions and coverage and people did free marketing for Tesla by talking about it, making memes and making it an internet troll. Now, the design may or may not seem futuristic for you, but the features and the raw power of the Tesla Cybertruck is unseen in any existing mini trucks.
The vehicle’s exoskeleton design is said to be nearly impenetrable, and it also includes Tesla armor glass. The Cybertruck has a payload capacity of 3,500 pounds and adjustable air suspension. While the interior follows in Tesla’s tradition of being extremely minimalist. It can boost 0-100kph acceleration in 2.9 seconds and the range can go up to 500 miles (804 kilometers).
This Lamborghini supercar was introduced last year, but at CES, it received a dose of tech-based practicality in the form of deep Amazon Alexa integration. Virtual assistants such as Alexa and Google Assistant have long been present in automobiles, but the Huracan Evo is one of the first to allow Alexa to control nearly every function. You can, for example, ask Alexa to turn up the heat or adjust the lighting in your car, in addition to performing more common Alexa-based tasks like checking the weather or getting driving directions. With its 640 horsepower engine, the all-wheel-drive V10 Huracan Evo can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds.
Rivian has recently made headlines for a variety of reasons. The R1T is a pickup truck that will be available on the market in the coming years. The all-electric Rivian R1T is built like any mid-size truck, with 750 horsepower from four electric motors and a range of up to 400 miles (643 kilometers). It also has a massive towing capacity of 11,000 pounds (4989 kilograms), a payload capacity of 1764 pounds (800 kilograms), and a wading depth of 3 feet (0.9 meters).Rivian has recently made headlines for a variety of reasons.

So, these are the cars I think that excites me the most in terms of futuristic design and capabilities. These cars aren’t dreamy or impossible and are practical. You can buy most of them now, or the next year instead of waiting more. Many of the concept cars do not even become reality, but you can hope that you will be able to even own one of these cars in the list soon.
