BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Concept
The BMW Vision ConnectedDrive was a prototype presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, which previewed technologies that would make their way to the brand's models in the future. And thanks to the work of Juliane Blasi, it had an electric propulsion system.
Where is the asymmetry? It can be seen clearly on the hood.
Citroën 2CV Prototype
During its prototype phase, in the second half of the of the 1930s, the Citroen 2CV was an asymmetrical beauty. Undoubtedly, this prototype was the prelude to what would become one of the most famous cars in the world, which was presented at the Paris show in 1948.
Where is the asymmetry? In something as simple as having only one light (on the driver's side). Apparently, the minimum required by French law to circulate.
DS X E-Tense Concept
Conceived as a concept car, previewing a sport car for the year 2035, the DS X E-Tense is equipped with two electric motors, and can deliver a maximum combined power of up to 1,360 horsepower.
Where is the asymmetry? In this case, it's simple: just take a look at the front of it...
Ford Fiesta Urba Concept
Presented at the Geneva show in 1989, the Ford Fiesta Urba concept advanced a design that the Hyundai Veloster and the Mini Clubman would popularize. Unlike the Veloster and Clubman, though, this Ford never reached the production line.
Where is the asymmetry? As you can see, there is one door on the driver's side... and two on the passenger's side.
Marketed since 2011, this peculiar compact (or coupe?) measures in at 13.8 feet long and is available with two gas engines: A 1.6 GDI producing 140 horsepower, and 1.6 TDGI producing 186 HP. At the latest Detroit show, Hyundai presented the second generation.
Where is the asymmetry? In the scheme of the doors, with one on the driver's side and two on the passenger's side. Also, there were versions with the steering wheel to the left and to the right. Undoubtedly, a challenge for the production chain.
Land Rover Discovery
The Land Rover Discovery is currently one of the most popular models, and has more tradition within the Land Rover range. Of course, it also happens to be one of the most discrete in this list.
Where is the asymmetry? On the tailgate, in the area of the license plate. A characteristic feature, which could already be seen in Discovery 3 and 4.
The first Clubman of the 'new' Mini is one example of the golden age of the brand, where there was room for any crazy idea. In case you don't remember, there was even a John Cooper Works versions with 211 horsepower.
Where is the asymmetry? On the right side, in the form of a small door, with a reverse opening, which made access to the rear seats easier.
Nissan Bevel Concept
Without a doubt, this is not one of Nissan's most successful design jobs. But it is asymmetrical enough to include on our list. It showed up for the first time at the Detroit show in 2007.
Where is the asymmetry? In addition to having a large door on the driver's side, and two on the passenger side, both the front grille, the front bumper and the tailgate were not symmetrical.
If we talk about design, the Nissan Cube is one of the most peculiar models on sale in recent decades. In fact, a decade has passed since it was put on sale, and today it still looks excessively futuristic.
Where is the asymmetry? Mainly in the tailgate, which glazed surface extends to the right side, without a pillar crossing its path.
Plymouth XNR Concept
Presented in the year 1960, this prototype was born with a clear objective: to fight the Chevrolet Corvette. And it could have achieved it, since it had a 250 horsepower engine, reached about 155 miles per hour, and featured a design by Carrozzeria Ghia. After going through several hands, the concept car was auctioned off in Monterey in 2012 for close to a million dollars.
Where is the asymmetry? Take a look at the back and you'll see.
The Renault 4 is one of the most famous models in the French brand's history. Of course, if you ask what is on this list or if you are looking for the asymmetric features in the body, you're probably not looking in the right place.
Where is the asymmetry? In the chassis. The Renault 4 has a different wheelbase, since one rear wheel is lagging behind the other. Everything to simplify the suspension scheme.
Renault Eolab Concept
The Renault Eolab is a prototype with a hybrid plug-in propulsion system. It was presented a few days before the Paris show in 2014, but never reached the production line.
Where is the asymmetry? As you can see in the photo, it pointed to the fashion of offering different number of doors on each side of the body.
