Perodua from Malaysia presents X-Concept car showNovember 23, 2018
The brand brought a conceptual version of the future urban hatchback to the Kuala Lumpur Motor Show.
At the motor show in Kuala Lumpur, the largest local automaker Perodua presented its new development – a concept car called Perodua X-Concept. The history of the brand began in 1992, and up to the end of 2016, the company produced the turned-up compact car of the Japanese brand Daihatsu. Three years ago, the situation radically changed: Perodua brought out its two almost original models – the Bezza sedan and the Myvi hatchback. Another independent brand development is the conceptual version of the compact X-Concept hatchback.
The length of the show car reaches 3.9 meters, and its design, most likely, over time we will be able to watch on future brand updates.
The prototype, which was brought to Kuala Lumpur, received a stylish head optics with LEDs, cameras instead of traditional rear-view mirrors, as well as the so-called “swing” rear doors that open against the progress of the car. These doors, hinged to the rear rack, called “suicidal.” The original design could not ensure the safety of the passengers of the car, even in a moderate traffic accident – there was always a risk that the door would swing open and the person would fly out of the cabin. Often, these doors spontaneously flung open at high speed.
Inside the concept car, there is a disproportionately large digital dashboard, a steering wheel with a complex geometric shape, an Apple-made overall tablet that acts as a media system, as well as sports seats. Information about the technical stuffing concept is not. The timing of the release of the car in the series, even approximate, is also not called. Experts talk about waiting in two or three years.
