Italy's Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) of Turin will showcase its new Eye concept vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show today.


Developed in collaboration with Tesla Motors, the new concept car was created by 11 students on the university's Transportation Design MA program under the supervision of Tesla's Design Director, Mr Franz von Holzhausen.

The idea is based on a drawing by Jorge Andrés Pinilla Fonseca, that aims to produce a fully electric 2+2 seat, C-segment car for a young, cosmopolitan target demographic.

Measuring 4250mm (L) x 1800mm (W) x 1360mm (H), the Eye Concept sits on a 2650mm wheelbase.

It incorporates a black plexiglass front fascia and an innovative roof structure that enables the vehicle to become a semi-open car, similar to a Ute.
