Derived from the FNR, an aborted concept that Chevy debuted in Shanghai just two years ago, the FNR-X is a plug-in hybrid "all goal sports concept" that boasts an adjustable ride height, active grill shutters (a feature on a handful of GM products, even the Colorado) and its wheel blades can apparently adjust automatically at higher speeds to reduce drag. However, the chances for a production version of the FNR-X are much better, with consumer demand for crossovers of all shapes, sizes, and prices exploding worldwide. On the other hand, front and rear spoilers help to generate either improves efficiency or performance, corresponding to the selected driving mode. Instead, it says the driver has the choice of two driving modes - a V (Versatility) or S (Sport) mode.
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.
It's not known whether the FNR-X will go into production anytime soon and Alan Batey, GM executive vice president only provided a generic statement about the auto: "The Chevrolet-FNR (sic) is one of Chevrolet's most forward-thinking concept cars, truly exemplifying the brand's passion for innovation and ingenuity", he said. 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. Seats ride on multipurpose rails and have fixed components to individualise storage space.
The FNR-X supports intelligent connected mobility for individual users. An augmented reality heads-up display shows the driver views from the rear of the vehicle, which is illuminated by organic light-emitting diodes (OLED).
According to Chevrolet, the FNR-X is equipped with an active suspension system that automatically adjusts the vehicle's ground clearance depending on the road condition. Its panoramic intelligent augmented reality head-up display offers a clear 270-degree posterior-lateral view to maximize safety and driving pleasure.
