You know how sometimes people just need to get out during the weekend and go somewhere to relax and recharge for the week ahead? That’s where something like the Infiniti A-RT Concept would come in.
According to designer Won Choi, the A-RT, which stands for All-Road Tourer, is an electrified premium crossover that’s meant to accompany you on your weekend journey, especially if that means “venturing out to the unbound,” as Choi puts it.
Weird or innovative?
While beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, the A-RT’s concave windshield design looks pretty awkward from certain angles. We also can’t help but wonder how such a design would affect visibility, although we suppose that if this concept was advanced enough, the driver may not have that much responsibility behind the wheel – which might actually be the case since the designer mentions the year 2050.
So imagine a fully interactive windshield/head-up display, Level 5 autonomy and perhaps even a steering wheel-free dashboard, or at least one where the wheel slides inwards so you can fully enjoy the vehicle’s multimedia features.
As for its overall appearance, it does look properly futuristic, for better or worse, and the light graphics at the rear do feature a very intricate layout – while the front end design has little to nothing in common with any modern day Infiniti model. Also, this isn’t meant to be that big of a vehicle, measuring just 4,700 mm (185.0 inches) in length and 2,040 mm (80.3 inches) in width, dimensions not unlike those of a 2019 BMW X4.
