The well-known German-based Audi Motors is presently attending to the allegation that most of its vehicles look almost similar to each other by adopting its design in an all-new bold direction.
So, the carmaker is preparing to introduce more demarcation between all its upcoming models, with its new styling anticipated to mirror the mechanical traits in detail behind the vehicles. Another significant aspect where the company designers will be hugely concentrating on, is enhancing the cohesion existing between the standard interior, and exterior styling of company’s vehicles, in such a way that each and every new model line could be potentially recognized entirely by their standard interiors.
As a sample of what the consumers could anticipate from the future models, we just need to take a glance at the brand’s all-new Crosslane concept vehicle that has been recently revealed at this year’s Paris International Motor Show. Heading the new design campaigning at the German luxury automaker is Wolfgang Egger, the company’s present head of design sector, who strongly believes that great design should convey a standard vision always.
The vision that is moving along is more likely to concentrate on the solid connection between advanced technology, and design. Egger explained that the company could make a general statement, only when the firm’s technology and design interlock flawlessly with each other. For that very reason, technology will no longer be sealed off, but it would rather be greatly exposed to the consumers.
Considering the latest Crosslane as an ideal example of the company’s new design direction, the vehicle’s newest multi-material space frame is clearly visible at many positions in the car – in the single frame front grille, at the ridges when unbolting the vehicle door, through intakes in the power-train hood, as a standard load bearing component, at the vehicle’s A-pillar, etc.
The company’s multi-material space frame styling is basically the interior construction of the model. But, rather than completely depending on a sole major design component for its production, the latest space frame concept is essentially made up of various dissimilar components, including carbon fiber, fiberglass, and mainly aluminum. The carmaker says that the new design permits for significantly lighter and firmer models, but without any considerable raises in the overall production costs.
If the consumers wish to know how the upcoming vehicle’s interior cabin design would probably look like, they could again take a good look at the newest Crosslane concept so as to obtain a general idea about the future styling.
