The Chevrolet-FNR concept has been unveiled today on the dawn of Auto Shanghai 2015.

Looking straight as if it was taken from a Sci-Fi movie, the FNR was developed locally by GM's Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) joint venture who envisioned an electric vehicle equipped with autonomous driving technology. It boasts a high-tech capsule design with crystal laser headlights and taillights, along with "dragonfly dual swing" doors and a wireless charging system.

The Chevrolet-FNR is powered by hubless wheel electric motors and has received a roof-mounted radar capable of mapping out the vehicle's surroundings to allow driverless functionality also possible thanks to a multitude of sensors. 

The concept has been imagined with an iris recognition start system and with special front seats that can swivel 180 degrees to face the rear seats when the vehicle is in autonomous mode. Switching back to manual mode is done via gestures to enable the driver take full control of the vehicle.

Needless to say, a production version isn't being planned.
