Top 75 Autos Trends in August

From DNA-Determined Car Colors to Commemorative Motorcycle Designs

— September 2, 2019 — Autos
The August 2019 auto round-up boasts a selection of car accessories, an interesting branded rental by Airbnb, as well as a number of examples of how manufacturers are navigating the electric car and self-driving vehicle market.

In the category of accessories, Dwayne Adams creates the Cup Logic holder that assures beverages are stabilized while the car is in motion.

In terms of Airbnb's publicity stunt, the company allows for its users to rent the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile at $178 USD per night. The offering is outlandish because the vehicle is shaped like a hot dog. Through it, the company celebrates National Hot Dog Day.

On the front of autonomous vehicles, on the other hand, the August 2019 auto list reveals an interesting concept by Honda dubbed 'Skyroom.' It allows passengers to lounge while the car is in motion.
