Cars of the FUTURE: 11 best transport technologies, startups & prototypes



Car & transport industry development in the modern information technology can’t be described other rapid and driven by worldwide competition. In recent years we have seen hundreds of car prototypes and theoretical technologies, which are sure to become the base for the transport of the future.

Many of us have seen futuristic driverless cars or personal transport, which use alternative types of fuel (including electricity and even air). All these scientific ideas and research could help us outline the future of the ways we commute and deriver things.
Briefly, our cars, planes, buses and trains are to be more eco-friendlier, faster, more efficient and adapted to our ways of living, both inside and outside the cities.

We have done some research and put together a short video presentation about transportation ideas, which have the potential of becoming popular in the future (please make sure to take a look at full videos via the links provided, as we just used excerpts of the content listed under the creative commons license):

– driverless cars have already been personated by Google, Audi, BMW and Mercedes. The most popular of them is the luxury concept Mercedes Benz F 015
