The Los Angeles Auto Show has announced their 9th annual Design Challenge will focus on highway patrol cars for 2025.
A number of design studios - from Bentley, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai and Subaru - have already confirmed plans to participate. The concepts will be unveiled in early November and utilize "advanced powertrains, alternative fuels, telemetrics and new sizes to effectively navigate dynamic urban environments."
The various concepts will be judged by Tom Matano (executive director of the School of Industrial Design at San Francisco's Academy of Art University), Imre Molnar (provost and chief academic officer at Detroit's College for Creative Studies), Stewart Reed (chair of Transportation Design at Pasadena's Art Center College of Design) and Bruce Meyer (a board member of the California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation). They will evaluate the cars on their speed and agility, creativity, technology and eco-friendliness.
