We tend to overestimate the changes we expect to find in the world in a decade or more. How does this relate to the automotive industry? How much will the design of cars in the future change, and above all – will their functions be very different from those we have now? Here are a handful of interesting predictions

Key differences

A lot about what the cars of the future might look like says the appearance of concept cars. In practice, however, they are usually much more futuristic than those later destined for mass production. What trends should we expect? Certainly, cars will move towards being greener.


It is certain that diesel engines will become obsolete, but it is not entirely clear what the future of gasoline units will look like. It is expected that zero-emission communication will become more widespread. Currently, the problem is the lack of infrastructure, but it will grow rapidly and become more widespread. Perhaps the future will belong not to popular “electrics”, but to hydrogen-powered cars.

Essential functions – a car without a driver?

What changes await us? Rapid development of modern technologies may result in the fact that the presence of a driver inside the car will no longer be necessary. But how will we get to our destination and without a crash along the way? Autonomous cars will operate on the principle of an interconnected network of computers, which will translate into traffic optimization that will be devoid of typical human error, i.e., traffic jams, accidents and crashes. It is also likely that the service of renting cars for a specified period of time will develop much more. This can be very conducive to better management of resources – it rarely happens that we need a car for most of the day. During that time it is useless, wouldn’t it be better if it could be made available to someone else for that time?

A car that “senses” your needs

It turns out, however, that futurologists foresee the emergence of cars in the future that, thanks to sensors, will be able to do much more than just drive us safely to a given point. It is speculated that sensors, based on the analysis of our voice, will be able to suggest appropriate actions when we are sick or sad. Automation may be the key process that will fundamentally transform the cars of the future – the Japanese are currently leading the way.

A car that flies?

This is exactly the feature imagined by some commentators who would like to see a real revolution in the way cars function in the future. Will we see scenes of flying cars on the streets, as if it were a science fiction movie? It is known that the biggest giants in the production of cars spend large sums of money on research. The machines they work on usually resemble very large drones

Mobile entertainment center

In addition, it must be said that not having to pay attention to driving gives you the opportunity to devote yourself to much more pleasant things while going from point to point. So, it is suggested that car manufacturers will take advantage of this and offer their customers models that are also mobile entertainment centers

Design and interior appearance

If it is difficult for us to determine what functions the cars of the future will be endowed with, it is even more difficult to answer the question: what will the cars look like in a dozen or so or several dozen years? Of course, we keep coming across new body and interior designs, but the revolution is more about equipping cars with modern technologies than giving them a “cosmic” look. This is especially true for the interior, where it is all about ensuring maximum ergonomics and it is difficult to come up with something completely new

We can expect to experience a revolution in interior design only after the introduction of autonomous cars. Rotating seats or even beds today are something that goes against the ergonomic use of a car, in the future their layout may change profoundly. After all, we won’t need to be facing forward all the time and paying attention to what’s going on around us. That is why it is worth following automotive trends – who knows, maybe we will be able to predict what cars of the future will look like
