AURON is a luxury business class concept, powered by an Electric Range Extender Engine. Its GT-style body provides more room than a common sedan, while its stance and roofline lend it a sporty appearance. In contrast to a modern car set-up, AURON features a large panoramic greenhouse, affording it a wide and open view.
The concept takes its main inspiration from the Northern Lights; its styling based on the motion of simple continuous lines.
THE FOLLOWING PICTURES PROVIDE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE WHOLE DESIGN PROCESS.
