Crossover Concept Cars

Chevrolet Orlando Turbodiesel Spotted in Paris

— September 11, 2008 — Autos
GM will be showing the Chevy Orlando concept at the Paris Motor Car Show next month. The Chevy Orlando is a 7 seat crossover turbodeisel. The Chevrolet concept rides on the same chassis as the upcoming Chevy Cruze. The Chevy Orlando and the Chevy Tacuma prototypes appear to be the same car. A substantial split grille dominates the front end, along with headlights that sweep back onto the front fender.

Implications - This concept car differs from many others in that its design and technological attributes do not seem so outrageous that this car will never be built. The appeal of this car is the possibility that it will actually be made.
Trend Themes
1. Crossover Vehicles - The rise of crossover vehicles, which combine elements of SUVs and passenger cars, creates opportunities for automakers to cater to consumers who want the best of both worlds.
2. Turbodiesel Engines - The increasing popularity of turbodiesel engines presents an opportunity for automakers to offer more fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly options, especially for larger vehicles like crossovers.
3. Concept Cars - The use of concept cars as a way to test the waters and gauge consumer interest in new designs and technologies can help automakers stay ahead of the curve.
Industry Implications
1. Automotive - Crossover vehicles and turbodiesel engines are disruptive innovations in the automotive industry, presenting opportunities to appeal to consumers who seek fuel efficiency, versatility, and eco-friendliness in their vehicles.
2. Manufacturing - The production of concept cars requires innovative manufacturing techniques, creating opportunities for manufacturers to develop new technologies and materials to meet the unique demands of the automotive industry.
3. Marketing - The use of concept cars as a way to generate buzz and gauge consumer interest presents opportunities for marketers to develop innovative campaigns that highlight the unique features and benefits of these new designs and technologies.
