    SHANGHAI – The Chevrolet FNR-X all-purpose sports concept vehicle made its world premiere today at Auto Shanghai 2017. Chevrolet previously showcased the Chevrolet-FNR (Find New Roads) concept vehicle developed by GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) joint venture at Auto Shanghai 2015.

    “The Chevrolet-FNR is one of Chevrolet’s most forward-thinking concept cars, truly exemplifying the brand’s passion for innovation and ingenuity,” said Alan Batey, GM executive vice president and president of GM North America and Global Chevrolet. “The FNR-X builds on the design and technology showcased on the original FNR concept and embodies the belief at Chevrolet’s core that anything is possible.”

    The futuristic-looking FNR-X draws inspiration from and exemplifies the century-old brand's combination of performance and versatility to meet multipurpose mobility demands.

    The concept vehicle retains Chevrolet's signature powerful, attractive design language through clear, masculine lines. Dynamic digital LED headlights and taillights combine the brand's characteristic dual-element light design with the mortise and tenon joint used in traditional Chinese woodwork, delivering a high-tech, artistic feeling underpinned by the spirit of craftsmanship. Unique rear-hinged doors that can be controlled remotely ensure easy entry and exit.

    The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle can switch between its engine and electric motor, while offering two driving modes: V (Versatility) and S (Sport). The FNR-X can modify its suspension and handling profile thanks to an adaptive suspension that adjusts ground clearance on demand.

    The model’s intelligent adaptive control systems, active grille shutters and switchable wheel blades adjust automatically during high-speed driving, reducing wind drag. The outstanding aerodynamic performance is further enhanced by front and rear spoilers and side skirts that move up and down in accordance with different driving modes.

    The FNR-X has a creative, imaginative interior design that matches its exterior. Intelligent ambient lighting changes colors to match driving modes, making the cabin more user-friendly. Featuring high-tech fabrics, the cabin’s hexagonal textures were inspired by graphene crystal structures – signifying the beginning of a new era for new energy.

    The steering wheel and dashboard have a sporty integrated design. Seats ride on multipurpose rails and have fixed components to individualize storage space. Split-folding second-row seats maximize cargo capacity.

    The FNR-X supports intelligent connected mobility for individual users. It incorporates an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) dynamic display system, a unique intelligent speech interaction system and an ID-customizable information system.

    With the all-terrain Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS), in addition to optical and acoustic recognition sensors all over its body, the FNR-X provides highly autonomous driver assistance by choosing the best route based on its predictions for complex road conditions. Its panoramic intelligent augmented reality head-up display offers a clear 270-degree posterior-lateral view to maximize safety and driving pleasure.

    I've said it before: C A M A R O S U V. Camaro, Camaro SUV, Camaro sedan (SS successor). Make em all look alike, badge them similarly.

    You'll have that plus Cadillac plus GMC to maximize opportunities for RWD crossover scale and profitability, and theoretically, all three channels should be "premium."

    Now that they are building the Velite (Volt) in China, I wonder if that platform will be modified to make the production version of this?

    A Chevy Evoque.
    Drives a 2011 CTS Coupe (crystal red tintcoat) and a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk (mango tango pearlcoat).

    Used to drive the 2010 Camaro pictured, until a deer hopped in front of me on I-79. Before that, I had a CTS sedan, two Firebird Formulas, a convertible Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, and a Saturn coupe.

    I don't mind the design, but not sure how "Chevy" it is. To me, it looks like a mish-mash of other brands' design cues. The shoulder line looks like Nissan's stuff, the front makes me think Lexus, the beltline/greenhouse/c-pillar looks like a Kia. Not sure what's with the 18 screens all in different spots around the cabin, either.

    Not bad. I do see a little Lexus in there.

    I like it and would buy it. It won't make production looking like that though.

    Looks better than the Lexus UX thingy.

    Honestly not bad looking at all, but you know the production version will be either hideous or look like another minivan/crossover thingy.

    Or maybe......GM should work on making the Camaro more successful.


    But I do see some Camaro cues on this thing. And I'll go out on a limb and say that they work better on this crossover concept.
