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.
