Top 30 Auto Trends in May

From Engine-Honoring Concept Cars to Protective Futuristic SUVs

— June 3, 2020 — Autos
This collection of the top May 2020 auto trends identify several eco-friendly transportation solutions as well as an array of renderings of vehicles that, although seemingly futuristic, could be showing up on roadways sooner than we think.

Aside from the eco-friendly and the futuristic, we're also seeing vehicles for road trips and travel like the 2020 Airstream Classic Travel Trailer be introduced as warm weather sees consumers itching to hit the open road. The arrival of warm weather is also bringing with it several electric motorcycle styles that all allow riders to take to the open road or get around their city on their own terms in a sustainable way.

Finally, there are several conceptual automotive designs like the 'IRIS' electric car that reacts to the driver's music to create a visual display on the road and also the Bugatti La Finale that pays homage to the internal combustion engine.
