Gallery: NAIAS PHOTOS: Michelin Challenge Design Shows Off The Best in ...

The Honda is designed for flexibility, offering up multiple drivetrains and flexible interior space. The idea with this design challenge was to envision what consumers would need to live efficient lives in an urban future in the year 2046.

The Renault Zoe ZE Concept uses a 95-horsepower motor and a lithium ion battery to create a total vehicle range of 100 miles. The car features multiple hexagonal honeycomb details, even comprising the headlights and what looks like a solar array on the roof. The Zoe ZE provided early input into the design of the Renault Zoe EV, which is launching in Europe in 2012. The Honda P-NUT appears to be a flexible design that can be used with a traditional gas engine, hybrid, or all-electric powertrain, and was designed to be a sophisticated small car meant exclusively for the city. Tata’s eMO concept is the first vehicle fully engineered in India, according to Tata Technologies President and Global COO Warren Harris: “It is a tangible example of the capability of Tata Technologies to engineer a full vehicle.”
