The EDAG Light Cocoon is EDAG's big concept creation of 2015. It's a compact and dynamic sports car that offers a glimpse into the future of lightweight automobile construction.

The vehicle's high-tech outer skin is inspired by the humble leaf. Just as leaves feature an ideal structure with a lightweight outer skin stretched on top of it, the EDAG Light Cocoon is sheathed in a textile skin. Beneath these layers sits backlight technology that illuminates the vehicle's underlying organic skeleton-like structure.

The textile skin of the EDAG Light Cocoon means that it is incredibly lightweight. This of course means that acceleration, braking, efficiency and handling are all made more enjoyable to anyone who has a need for speed.

Indeed this is a concept vehicle that, even if it never makes production, is sure to inspire some interesting creations in the ufute.
