Starting in 2040, the UK is set to ban all gas and diesel vehicles in an attempt to lower nitrogen oxide levels in the air. This will drastically change the automotive landscape. No one really knows what the future holds for the automobile. Many people are looking forward to cars that drive themselves, while others hope flying cars will feature in the future. Any parent with kids who are into cars must also have drawing after drawing of the strangest and most wonderful imaginary vehicles taped to the fridge. Kids are not limited by things like logic or reality and it’s what makes them some of the most creative people on the planet. Keeping that in mind, the staff over at Rimstyle asked the kids and younger siblings of employees and friends to draw what they thought futuristic cars would look like. Then, their designers retooled the drawings to make them more life-like.
The first drawing on futuristic cars is from Lina, age 11. She said that her car “Has wings so it can fly. Strawberry smell smoke which makes music. It’s got heart shaped windows. Has a spider web shooter. Has vegetable and fruit wheels so very eco-friendly.” Some rendering artist then took Linda's designed and helped bring it to life.
The next drawing comes from Liam, age nine, who put a propeller on the side of his drawing. Izzy, age five, designed a car that companies like Volvo are aiming for. She said that “This is a car that can transform to a boat if necessary. It doesn’t need a seatbelt because it never crashes.” Ben, age nine, created a car that eliminates the commute all together. “This car teleports so dad doesn’t complain about the traffic on his way to work” he said. He would love to see some of these ideas on futuristic cars.
There were also some fun ideas such as Harry, age seven, who designed a futuristic cars that splits out candy instead of exhaust fumes and Hannah, age four, who created a car that is shaped like a banana.
Izzy, age 5. “This is a car that can transform to a boat if necessary. It doesn’t need a seatbelt because it never crashes.”
Harry, age 7. The text bubble in the bottom right reads, “Mum I got a sweety please don’t be mad, I saved one for you!”.
Ben, age 9. “This car teleports so dad doesn’t complain about the traffic on his way to work”.
Hannah, age 4. “I shaped my car like a banana because mum always makes me eat my banana on the way to school”.
