There are just three days to go until the 2013 Media Preview of the Chicago Auto Show and we’re pretty sure that there will be a few surprises, although with Detroit already getting many exclusives we don’t expect many debuts. While we may already know about many of the vehicles that will be on show shortly, we thought we’d have a little recap on three concept cars that will be on show during the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
These concept cars will never make it to production in their current forms because car manufacturers will need to make several changes in order to keep costs down, as well as making them practical for everyday use. Three vehicles that will be on show in a few days are the Ford Atlas Concept, Honda EV-STER Concept and finally the Lexus LF-LC concept.
The Ford Atlas Concept could very well be the F150 in a few years time and there are a number of key features to help increase fuel-efficiency, as we previously explained. Ford has listened to their customers about what they want from a pickup and they believe that if the concept does finally enter production then it should help compete in a market they were once leaders in.
The Honda EV-STER Concept is a two-seater sports car powered by an electric motor with a power output of 78 horsepower, good enough for a top speed of 100 mph and a range of 99 miles between charges, which is only practical for local driving, such as the school run or the commute to work.
The final concept and the one that appeals to us is the Lexus LF-LC, although we’ve already had a taste of this vehicle at last years show. This hybrid vehicle is said to produce more than 500 horsepower and will not only give great performance but fantastic fuel-efficiency to match, unlike the LFA with it’s small fuel tank.
Which of the three concepts are you looking forward to most, or will you have your eye on another vehicle at Chicago?
