Top 100 Auto Trends for 2019

From Electric Car Conversion Companies to Holographic Sports Cars

— February 18, 2019 — Autos
These 2019 auto trends range from custom holographic sports cars to electric car conversion companies. While examples like Dreams Factory Automotive's customized Lamborghini Aventador is wrapped in a reflective, holographic material, car personalization company Voitures Extravert transforms vintage models into fully functioning electric cars. The latter example speaks to consumers' evolving love for nostalgic automobiles while appealing to environmentally conscious sensibilities.

When it comes to compact and city-friendly car options, Fiat’s 500 Spiaggina ’58 model is a notable example which updates a retro design to be summer-ready and ideal for road trips to the beach. Additionally, examples like the Honda Urban EV concept marry compact and sustainable elements thanks to the vehicle's electricity-powered design.

Other 2019 auto trends to note include vehicle accessories like the travel-friendly 'Hitch Hotel,' a wheel free trailer concept that doubles as outdoor accommodations, and the YI compact dash cam which records HD footage while appealing to a budget-conscious audience.

For more auto trends in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2019 Trend Report.
