Chevrolet FNR Concept - NetCarShow

The Chevrolet FNR is an autonomous electric concept vehicle that offers a glimpse at mobility of the future. It was developed in Shanghai by GM's Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) joint venture.

Engineering, design and electrification teams drew on their past experience developing electric concept vehicles. Their aim was to create a unique, intelligent vehicle for tomorrow's younger consumers by utilizing innovative car networking technology.

The Chevrolet FNR boasts a futuristic capsule design. It has crystal laser headlights and taillights, dragonfly dual swing doors, magnetic hubless wheel electric motors and a wireless auto-charge system.

The Chevrolet FNR is loaded with a range of intelligent technologies usually seen only in science fiction movies. They include sensors and roof-mounted radar that can map out the environment to enable driverless operation, Chevy Intelligent Assistant and iris recognition start. The Chevrolet FNR can also serve as a "personal assistant" to map out the best route to the driver's preferred destination.

In self-driving mode, the vehicle's front seats can swivel 180 degrees to face the rear seats, creating a more intimate setting. The driver can switch to manual mode through the gesture control feature.

Chevrolet-FNR and
All-New[(reTREAD)] Chevrolet Malibu Make Global Debut at Shanghai GM Gala Night -

...The '''all-new''' Malibu, which is based on the (old) eighth-generation Malibu, was developed especially for China to meet the demands of younger consumers. It demonstrates Chevrolet's latest “Designed to Raise your Heartbeat” direction that reflects muscular body lines and enhanced body proportions.

It is longer than its predecessor. Muscular lines on the hood combined with sculptural outlines on the rear accentuate its powerful stance.

The all-new Malibu’s integrated narrow upper grille with eagle eye-shaped headlights, Chevrolet's iconic sculptural dual-port grille with chrome trim, and semi-framed fog lamps work together to present a sharp three-dimensional look that is balanced by the sedan’s well-rounded rear fascia. Its dual-element taillights were inspired by those on the first-generation Malibu.

True to the brand's “fun to drive” philosophy, the all-new Malibu is equipped with a choice of a 2.4L Ecotec SIDI engine or a 2.0L DVVT engine, as well as a new-generation six-speed automatic transmission.

Its European-style sports chassis, which is built on GM's most advanced upper-medium sedan platform, adds to the driving pleasure that today’s younger car buyers prefer...

Now THAT'S a concept!

Chevy really is doing extraordinary things now, finally GM is giving them priority attention. My attitudes about the brand have flipped in just the past few months, I've never seen a company evolve this quickly and aggressively in every single corner of their business all at once.
