Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko are young industrial designers. More importantly, for our purposes, they are car enthusiasts of the first order. As such, they fully understand that the future of the automobile is especially bright right now- and they’re using their talent and optimism to show just how bright it is. Today, we’ll be looking at this: an incredible, futuristic Audi semi truck.
Well, we’ll be looking at half of the Audi truck concept, anyway. That’s because Artem and Vladimir began this project by sketching out two versions of the concept. The first was intended to be a fully autonomous, self-driving truck. The second (shown here) of their forward-looking concepts would be driven by humans. In either case, though, the team’s work is truly exceptional. It’s well-thought out, possible, and- most importantly- beautiful to look at. If Audi ever does decide to take on Tesla and Volvo in the big (subsidized) truck game, they could do far worse than calling on Artem and Vladimir to start them off on the right foot.
Check out the pair’s work on the #truckforaudi project, below, then compare this electric version it to the other, driverless version of the same project and let us know which one you prefer. As for Artem and Vladimir? They couldn’t pick a favorite and, for what it’s worth, neither can I!
