I think we can all agree on the unsightly and inconvenient nature of sharing the highway with big rigs. These massive 18-wheelers overpower all other vehicles on the road and lend themselves more to eyesores than their utility. However, that would all seem to get thrown by the wayside if Audi follows through with these concepts that two designers put together this past week.
The goal of the project, called Truck For Audi, was to create a concept for a self-driving electric truck for the German automobile manufacturer. In this case, since the idea itself breaks new ground in the transportation world, it only made sense that designers Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko would practically reinvent the way we view these trucks. What’s left for us is quite the imaginative piece of vehicle conceptualization, featuring elongated headlights and tail lights along with design lines smoother than Miles Davis. And let’s not forget that cockpit inspired cabin. Whatever the case, if these do make it on the road eventually, they’re sure to draw significant attention from surrounding drivers.
