By now we know that cars of the future will look nothing like the floating spheres featured on our favorite Jetsons episodes. With technology booming and people striving to create the next best thing, it’’s no wonder that the creative minds of the world are banging their heads against the walls trying to push the envelope with the vehicles of tomorrow. One such creative mind that may have just banged his head one too many times is Korean design student, Youngho Jong. Jong has put together a design for a 2025 Saab Concept that combines the elements of nature and human psychology fit to warn other vehicles of any impending danger.

The 2025 Advanced Warning System Vehicle concept is a four door saloon that comes with various warning signals to alert other drivers when he vehicle is getting too close or is driving recklessly. Jong’s inspiration for this concept came after doing some research and discovering that 50% of vehicle accidents are caused by carelessness, excessive speed, and tailgating. Keeping this in mind, Jong designed this sports sedan to feature amber hazard lights on the front, back, and side to warn the other vehicles that the car is too close. Another warning that the car may be coming too close are the patches of the vehicle’s body darkening upon sensing that another car is near. The coolest part of this concept is the body that is made of a soft, impact absorbing material that will decrease pedestrian injuries and vehicle damage upon impact.

They say that there is a thin line between genius and insanity, and this guy is doing the Lambada on it, but then again, a lot of people thought Christopher Columbus was crazy when he said the Earth was round.

2025 is way to far. I don’t know if Saab is still an existing company in the year 2025. I think it would be much better if they will release it sooner.

WOW! I didn’t know that this car can be this good. Honestly, the current production of this car is not that impressive and look so ordinary of its kind! However, I think it would be a long time of waiting before this car can be seen in the showroom.

The concept looks so futuristic. It needs more explanation on the details. This sedan concept will become a hot topic in the future.

This one is a true genuine and elegant sedan car! I wish this project will push through. I can’t wait to see the actual results.

In addition to the 2011 9-5 already being available in showrooms, the 2.0T version of the 9-5 is available with a six speed manual as well.

Saab have a serious presence in the back of people’s minds, including some of the kids and their parents at my school. In other words, that’s the stereotypical Saab. But many others exist. Like me.

Yes, m93 is right - this one is traditional SAAB design. But this quirky car was always for special owner. And seems to me SAAB is on the right track finding its roots and I hope it’s buyers!

The concept has been developed as a project for a graduation course in transportation design in the Umea Institute of Design, a leading school that prepares transportation designers.

If you are following the 2025 concept too closely, for instance, slits open up in its rear panels revealing amber hazard lights. Patches of the car’s skin also darken, warning you that you are too close.

hahaha same here dude... were thinking the same.. but are they serious with it?

2025? dang isn’t that the cars are already hovering in 2020? hahah just kindding, i just remember the jetson family.

Yes, this is a concept, The problem is that the technological advancements of 2025 are kind of far and you cannot anticipate that far. I mean it was trully an revolution in the past 10 years in terms of technology. I expect that to triple in the next 15 years, and this could result in amazing results. Maybe no rubber wheels, no front-hood smiley

Yeah, with yellow it is a material brought from the X sun gallaxy and this material does not bend, this way making this car impossible to destroy!

What safety could some yellow stripes bring?

The drawings are great looking. The final shape needed more touch.

If the Aero X was my favorite car for quite some time, this concept has only one great part, the front grill and lights.

true, never get behind of it because the rear end might attract you to come closer, and you’ll never know that you’ve already kiss his tail.

The design is destined to ward off people who tailgate or who drive close to you. The concept is combined with the great idea and modern materials to bring it to the whole vehicle. This is really excellent!

If you look closely at the design of this concept you’ll inevitably notice the yellow and amber accents that appear on it. According to Youngho Jong they are not there because of styling efforts but because of safety.
