Concept cars are designed to showcase new technologies and design ideas that usually look totally bizarre but today we’ll be taking a look at the top 10 craziest concept cars of 2022

It’s certainly a striking vehicle. The sleek styling will stand out on the road and accompany is packed full of technology, even highlighting the winshape headlights that apparently will be used to communicate with pedestrians and other vehicles, although quite how this works is still to be seen. the GLA8 flagship is fitted with V 2x technology which will give an autonomous driving capabilities and Buick hasn’t yet provided any details of the powertrain almost expected to be a turbo for gasoline engine.
As for the interior, the flagship feels like a modern lounge with a bench seat in the rear and a front passenger seat that can swivel all the way around to face backwards. In the front there’s a 30 inch infotainment screen, a touchscreen on the steering wheel and a full width heads up display, providing the driver with all the information they could possibly need.
I don’t expect a vehicle like this to be released by Buick in any other country other than China. But it at least gives you an idea of the types of technologies and design the company could be bringing elsewhere.
