Automotive designs that have become the popular + growing trends of May 2021!

The month of May saw a downpour of fierce, drool-worthy auto designs at Yanko Design. Each automobile was innovative, giving us something we had never seen or experienced before. From blazing speed and jaw-dropping beauty to impenetrable safety standards, every automobile we’ve presented to YD has broken a design barrier for us, and I hope they’ve done the same for you too. And we’ve curated some of our absolute favorite automotive trends for the month of May for you – from a Cybertruck-inspired rover concept to a Honda electric pickup concept, we’ve got some nasty machines for you!

The Honda Ridgeline EV concept comes from the mind of California-based Rene Garcia, a concept designer at ILM who previously worked on The Mandalorian, Thor: Ragnarok, The Avengers, and the Transformers anthology. Garcia began to design the vehicle as a Dakar rally truck, but gradual iterations slowly transformed it into a concept van for Honda. Designed to handle just about anything you can throw at it, the EV comes with its own winch hook up front, luggage rack behind, suicide-style rear doors that give you access to the spacious interiors of the car and an expandable truck. bed on the back which is even equipped with tools and emergency medical kits.

Radek Štěpán’s Pandemax concept is unconventional to say the least. It has a distinct Star Wars inspired aesthetic and those off-road tires and that high ground clearance really implies that the car could easily run over even the most rugged alien terrain. Designed to be a sort of exploration vehicle or manned rover, the Pandemax comes with two seats that are absolutely at the front of the vehicle, with a panoramic windshield that allows explorers to have a full view of the terrain and landscape in front of them. Of course, there are also a few questions that come to mind, particularly regarding driver safety and also the center of gravity, given that the drivers are seated outside the wheelbase of the car. However, it’s a neat aesthetic exploration of an interplanetary vehicle if you ask us. I especially like the Cybertruck vibe, and I’m sure the driver has a hell of a view!

The Boat Tail, a coupé born out of customers’ enduring love for the sea and their fondness for nautical design, has been specially designed to celebrate craftsmanship and the relative history of yacht building. Three coupes inspired by nautical shipbuilding design were built under Rolls-Royce’s modern bodywork department. Merging today’s cutting-edge technology with the trusted bespoke bodywork of yesteryear, the Boat Tail’s hand-formed chassis houses a 19-foot hood that covers the 6.75-liter V-12 engine of the car. The azure blue coat of the boat tail tilts to a tapered finish around the rear and lines the painted grille of the Automotive Hall of Fame.

If Maserati builds a futuristic superbike, it would definitely catch the eye, and this design concept really deserves the Maserati badge. This superbike design by motorcycle enthusiast Tomáš Klečka – a student from Brno, Czech Republic – is certainly so worthy of riding. The electric two-wheeler seems to be inspired by the alien Xenomorph XX121 for its villainous machine character. On the other hand, the superbike is just more than its flashy Trident logo. The air vents on the sides are so reminiscent of the Maserati brand and the cars we have seen all these years. The large hubless wheels give the Maserati electric concept bike the iconic character of the Tron bike – and you could say – the ride is a striking image of the legendary superbike. A badass style wheelset with the Xenomorph XX121 and Tron bike styling.

Meet the Marzal, a conceptual off-roader designed to be about as brutal and powerful as the brand of “fighting bull” it represents! Its profile certainly captures the iconic Lamborghini silhouette, with its iconic wedge-shaped design… but with higher ground clearance, a taller rear, and bigger tires designed for rough roads. It’s pretty rare to see a Lamborghini with a rear windshield, and the Marzal brags about it too, although it crashes when you include the storage unit. With its aggressive design style and that iconic yellow color, the Marzal looks like something Lamborghini would do – a testament to the strong visual language of the company. It also sports a rather interesting Y-shaped tail light, often seen in Lamborghinis, but not like this. In the case of the Marzal, the Y shape is an important and defining feature at the rear, and I personally think it gives character to the vehicle.

Ziggy Moto created the cool looking bike for Anthony Partridge and they are working with Olliminium Auto Fabrication to further refine the mechanics. Since Ziggy Moto doesn’t have an official name for the race, I like to call it the Iron Man Streamliner. The ventilation slits on the front resemble the armored layers of the Iron Man suit. According to the design plans, this bike is meant to be a drag racer and not really a practical two-wheeler for circuit races or even crooked sections of the road. The low ground clearance at the front and the elongated lower part like that of the Streamliner will make it difficult to tilt the bike in the turns with the assurance of not losing your balance.

Habib designed the plan during the quarantine period in February 2021 for this Type 57 SC Atlantic-inspired concept highlighted by the vertical split with a raised seam running from the hinge to the hood. He envisioned the futuristic electric-powered coupe in 2036 when technical improvements made it easier to use carbon fiber for the design of the chassis structure. The spaceship C-shape (adapted from the Bugatti Ventoux Coupé) and the engine housed inside the wheels (yes, that’s not a typo!) Provide a glimpse of reimagined vehicles of the future. The concept retains the proportions of the GT series for a luxurious and emotional touch while incorporating a modern and sporty look. The tail design of the Bugatti Hommage 100 2036 pays homage to the Atlantic with a riveted middle to make the car lighter. The same goes for the hood, which preserves the natural GT feel.

Designer Shuvoneel Chakraborty created the master plan for Monster in Shell 2 from the inside out, giving it the appearance of modularity, utility and inherent minimalism. He imagines it powered by a 100 kW battery with regeneration. This massively extends the distance traveled without frequent stops to recharge. Power is transmitted to the wheels by the dual hub motors inside the front and rear wheels. To ensure that the driving experience is as smooth as possible, this monster features adaptive suspension and balance assist. Take a ride at breakneck speeds and you won’t have to give in to subconscious fear since all of your feel-good hormones are overdrive!

Building on its vision of reinventing urban mobility by bringing it into an emissions-free future, Husqvarna has just launched the Vektorr, an electric scooter concept with a heavy body design almost inspired by BMW Motorrad Concept Link that projects confidence. and domination on the road. The launch of the Vektorr comes just days after Husqvarna announced the E-Pilen electric motorcycle, and one can even notice a consistency in their design language. The Vektorr embodies Husqvarna’s agile, forward-thinking design aesthetic while judiciously using tight curves to create an automobile that looks edgy and muscular. The e-scooter relies on a familiar silver, black and lemon yellow paintwork, as seen in the E-Pilen, and has the iconic circular headlight that is the signature of the Husqvarna brand.

Meet the CyberX electric bike by XION, which is good as a street cafe runner, dirt bike, daily commuter to the local store or your perfect accomplice for a winning date. The eBike has everything in one package to impress any user. Straight from a future Cyberpunk, wearing a semblance of neon colors that has become a cult favorite with Tron bikes – this ride is unlike anything on the roads yet. Those chunky wheels contrast with a slim profile, rigged LED lighting, and fully customizable laser-printed side panels – all add up to make this a dazzling ride that one would want to flaunt. The two-seater setup (in a bench-like leather saddle setup) of the electric bike is another standout feature, which most performance bikes cannot boast of. The sharp LED headlight gives it a moped feel, while the bodywork and color-changing wheels give it enough presence on the road in the dark, so that other motorists remain aware.
