Top 65 Auto Ideas in November

From Luxury Plug-In Hybrids to Bicycle Traffic Sensors

— November 25, 2014 — Autos
The most popular November 2014 auto ideas reflect the industry's commitment to creating safer and greener driving experiences for consumers. While hybrid and electronic cars are becoming more mainstream, there is only a handful of car brands working to deliver high-end luxury to complement the environmental advantages. The Lamborghini Asterion is the perfect example of how a luxury car brand can deliver its customers the speed they want and the guarantee that the vehicle isn't harming the planet.

The other pattern identified among the top November 2014 auto ideas is safety. Whether for a car or bicycle, there are many products emerging that are able to enhance the safety of transportation. Products like the Veloloop ensure bikers can wait at and leave traffic intersections safely and timely.

Trend Hunter's Autos Trend Report includes more in-depth research on how these patterns are transforming the way brands design their cars.
