Today we are attending to some crucial changes around the car pushed by environmental issues, social trends and new uses.

In the next ten years electric drive trains will make possible a more dramatic change on the proportions of the entire vehicle than the combined changes from the past 30 years.

Besides, every single area will be rethought with new functionalities linked to advances in aerodynamics, electronics, charging or lighting.

In a scenario where cars will be designed to look nice and to be more functional, light will have a key role, expanding to areas that until now were just conceived by style criteria.

How light will influence both Style and Colour & Trim of the 2025+ car?

The aim of the contest is to show the integration of light on Colour & Trim design (new aesthetics, finish, materials) and Design/ Styling (new concepts, products) linked to new functionalities and see how they will affect the following specific environments of the vehicle:

  • Exterior front module (front grille, trims, etc.)
  • Exterior upper side (B/C pillars, etc.)

Take into account subjects as Materials, Colour, Interaction with the Environment, Use, Semantics…etc.

Show us your vision of how light will change the way we see cars beyond 2025!
