Seat Vitoria Shows An Electric Tech-Laden SUV From The Future

There will probably come a day when even mainstream automakers such as Seat will no longer need to adhere to conventional designs for their products, as cars will be completely reliant on computers and battery power to get around.

So in the future, we’re bound to see quite a few spectacular-looking vehicles, since many of today’s aerodynamic solutions will become obsolete due to different packaging, unless of course we’re dealing with a supercar or a hypercar that need to satisfy a completely different set of needs.

For a mass-market compact crossover, we see no reason why something that looks very much like this render by Aitor Amigo Lopez shouldn’t see the light of day.

According to its creator, the Vitoria moniker was given in reference to the Basque municipality that goes by the same name. Meanwhile, features that would help this concept stand out are its spacious interior despite the compact exterior, the battery-electric powertrain and its Level 5 autonomous systems, meaning that the vehicle is fully self-driving.

A very interesting piece of tech is the facial recognition system, which together with a fingerprint reader (those circular buttons on the doors) would make entry real easy without having to operate a key fob and yank on a door handle – and probably safer, too.

Once inside, you would of course have access to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus a personal assistant, which we assume would be infinitely better than anything available today, seen as how the Vitoria was designed for the year 2030.

    It may be just me, but it is becoming (as of very recently) quite apparent, the difference between when a vehicle is designed by hand, and when one is designed solely by a computer. It seems to be too sharp, too angular, and (while overflowing for some in the “cool factor”,) lacks substance or soul to it,.. a cool, but cold statement.

    It’s not simply with this concept/rendering here, but it seems to be something that had begun to appear in concept vehicles and production vehicles as of late. I am ok and fine with this, and this is great, but my main concern is not the integration of computerized design, but rather the loss of design with intentional-soul to it, with it.

    It may just be my opinion, but it’s something I felt I should say.

      This is the difference between digital design and hands-on sculpting. I agree with your comment, and if this went past the digital stage, to creating a clay, then it will take on different characteristics.because you can walk around it and it becomes a physical, tangible form.

        Definitely agreed.

    Since when Seat are allowed to be creative, I’ve always thought they are deemed to follow/use last generation VW products.
