IED Shiwa concept is a futuristic, autonomous EV [video]
The IED Turin and Quattroruote have unveiled the Shiwa concept at the Geneva Motor Show. Named after the Japanese word for "fold," the Shiwa was created by Youngjin Shim and eleven other students who are completing their master's degree at the university. As the name suggests, the model draws inspiration from origami and features a diamond-shaped exterior which is constructed of a "metal composite material" that has been given an aluminum finish. The concept has also been equipped with LED headlights and an exterior OLED display that indicates the charging level of the car's batteries. More notably, since the car was envisioned as an autonomous vehicle, designers were free to eschew a windscreen and side windows.
