Top 35 Autos Trends in October

From Pickup-Mounted Camper Cabins to Eco-Friendly Cargo Trucks

— October 24, 2020 — Top Lists
This collection of October 2020 autos trends are focused on some cutting-edge real and conceptual vehicles alike, but also highlight just how popular off-grid exploration is becoming for consumers. This is coming in the form of camper vans, aftermarket overlanding equipment and more that are all focused on supporting consumers with a penchant for local exploration.

Conceptual vehicles are also in the spotlight this month as designers imagine the future of transportation with sports cars and shipping trucks that highlight electric motors, autonomous driving or both.

The top October 2020 autos trends also includes two examples of vehicle-centric marriage ideas that come in response to the inability to have a traditional wedding this year. This comes in the form of the FREE NOW & Kapten drive-thru weddings and even the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile being made available for proposals.
