2018 has been a crazy year for concept vehicles. We’re used to seeing “traditional” concepts sporting traditional powertrains, and while those concepts still arrived in abundance this year, automakers mixed their offerings up to introduce what we like to call “new-age” concepts that tout electrification, autonomous driving technology, and over-the-top power and performance numbers. We saw a lot of those concepts, too. The specs and features of these concepts may be arbitrary and far-fetched, but their features point to where automakers are spending their time and money with an eye towards the future of the industry. Picking this year’s coolest concept cars was more challenging than in past years, but we were able to narrow it down to 10 concepts that, we believe, best embodies the year in the business that’s about to come to a close.
