Beyond Design Attends 2017 Chicago Auto Show

March 2, 2017

Part of our Beyond Design team attended the 110th annual Chicago Auto Show earlier last month and saw some great and innovative vehicle designs. Below are some that caught our eye:

Camp Jeep Indoor Track:
Fan favorite, Jeep, brought back their indoor trail for 13th year. Participants were able to sit driver or passenger side to experience how different Jeep models can take on:
• Rugged terrain
• Climbing up a 35 degree hill
• Going over jagged boulder-like terrain
• Climbing up a set of stairs

Kia Ski Gondola:
Similar to the Jeep’s tough all terrain vehicles, Kia unleashed their tenacious Ski Gondola. With its dominant and bulky track “wheels,” Kia’s concept car was a stand out. The mountain ready gondola also features:
• LED light bars on the hood, front, and rear of car for optimal visibility in snow storms
• Cameras as opposed to side mirrors
• Sleek black metal roof to rack skis and snowboards
• Suicide style doors
• Autonomous – the gondola will take you up and down the slopes
