Chevrolet FNR-X Concept Unveiled At Shanghai Auto Show

Chevrolet FNR-X

The company labels the FNR-X as an "all-purpose sports concept vehicle", and has given it a wide selection of technologies to match its futuristic styling.

The futuristic Chevrolet FNR-X concept has been shown at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show, potentially signaling the arrival of a sporty new crossover from the American automaker in the world's largest vehicle market.

Whether or not the FNR-X will have the same fate as the FNR is unclear, but here's to hoping this wild-looking Chevy at least inspires future designs.

The Pan Asia design and engineering center is run by a joint venture between General Motors and Chinese automaker SAIC Motor that produces multiple vehicles and brands, many unique to the China market.

The carmaker does say that the FNR-X offers two driving modes - V (Versatility) and S (Sport) - and that the powerplant can switch between its internal combustion engine and the electric motor. The FNR-X can modify its suspension and handling profile thanks to an adaptive suspension that adjusts ground clearance on demand.

On the move the concept also introduces active aero largely alien to the small crossover class. Features like active grill shutters are nothing new, but the U.S. vehicle maker's concept also comes with adjustable wheel blades, front and rear spoilers and side skirts that move according to driving style to maximise downforce or minimise drag. With a battery of optical and acoustic recognition sensors the FNR-X Concept also provides "highly autonomous assistance" by selecting optimal routing based on its assessment complex road conditions. Even the blades on the alloy wheels can adjust to assist smooth airflow.

The absence of a B-pillar coupled with conventional front and remote-controllable coach-style rear doors ease access to the FNR-X Concept's roomy passenger cabin which boasts a rich feature set of its own.

The steering wheel and dashboard have a sporty integrated design.

The steering wheel and dashboard of the FNR-X are meant to convey a sporty feel, although interacting with numerous car's functions is largely done by voice.
