More than any other industry in the world, the automotive business has the capacity to remind us just what the future may look like. It may not smell of grandeur like other scientific fields, but the auto industry can give us sneak peeks of what may be in store for all of us somewhere down the road.

GM introduces the Buick Avant

Take General Motors for example. After launching its new Lab website, GM has given us a slew of cars that could one day – all things considered, of course – end up roaming the streets in the future. The brand’s latest offering is the Buick Avant, which, in addition to being innovative in every sense of the word, could also become the standard bearer of scaled-down models among high-end car brands.

If futuristic cars become topics of discussion, the Buick Avant should be right in the thick of the conversation. It’s got a cargo space that automatically brings the luggage to the passenger, it’s got doors that seemingly swings and slides every which way, and what GM is calling a pergola roof, which turns translucently depending on what the driver wants.

It’s innovation at its finest, and you can check out the video to learn more about the car.
