Designers Xin Zhecheng and Zhang Ming Yang are bucking the trend of the compact future vehicle with their Intertandem concept car. Intertandem is designed for Shanghai 2047 and is meant to ease the city's transportation crisis by allowing more people to travel in a single vehicle.
The Intertandem concept car is about the size of a standard sedan and can seat eight. The car has a sizable trunk and is tech-savvy, communicating with other Intertandems in the area. Car design is consistently skewing towards smaller and more personal vehicles. This is great for the suburbs, but it could present a nightmare for urban areas. Bigger and greener vehicles could be the best way to ease the traffic jams of the future.
