Top 80 Autos Trends in June

From Concept Car-Inspired Yachts to Interactive Traffic Maps

— June 25, 2017 — Autos
If Pixar's 'Cars' has shown the world anything, it's that cars alone are enough to build a fully functioning society, and the June 2017 autos trends here show that to be as true as it ever was. Whether in terms of the actual vehicles themselves or with regard to the plethora -- even cornucopia -- of products and services that have arisen around cars, its clear that a society run by cars and cars alone would be a society worth living in.

The cars in the June 2017 autos trends can be further subdivided into concept cars and consumer vehicles. On the consumer side, luxury auomaker Rolls Royce is offering up a new vehicle that may as well be conceptual. The Rolls Royce Ghost Seoul edition is exclusive to South Korea, and the company has only built two of them. Concepts are still more intriguing, with Maserati having built a concept inspired by the Argentinian soccer god Lionel Messi.

For products around cars, some are more evidently pleasant that others. The VisionZero map gives a legitimate aid, helping LA drivers to avoid the worst snarls of traffic in the notoriously gridlocked city. Others are less palatable by description: the 'Fuel Juice Co.' branding concept disguises juice in motor oil packaging.
