By - March 3, 2014 45 Pictures
Of all the technologies to have emerged from the digital renaissance, additive manufacturing (3D printing) has the potential to be the most disruptive. A perfect example of the way 3DP will change the way we make things will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show this week when EDAG, the world’s largest independent engineering partner to the mobility industry, displays an example of a printed automobile. The Genesis is more a conceptual sculpture than an automobile, but it will give you a taste of what the world's leading manufacturers might be producing a decade or two from now. Read More

Here's one from this year's International Geneva Motor Show you may have overlooked. We first caught a whiff of EDAG's Light Car concept in the September of 2009, when the open source project was in preliminary development. At Geneva this year, EDAG unveiled the third member of what's fast becoming a full range of all-electric Light Cars: the EDAG Light Car - Sharing. Hmm. Let's call it the LC-S for short. A markedly different animal to the Light Cars before it, the LC-S is aimed at inner-city car hire fleets. Read More

The EDAG LUV - a modular vehicle concept with maritime flair

By - March 1, 2007 12 Pictures
March 2, 2007 As we previewed last month, EDAG’s latest concept car will be making its first appearance on March 6 in Geneva – the “EDAG LUV”. The design concept of the “LUV” is based on an luxury-class SUV and incorporates a maritime look from bow to stern: oiled teakwood on the hood, as the flooring on the interior, and on the elegant cargo area conveys a maritime flair. But the “EDAG LUV” is a real eye-catcher in other respects as well: the cargo area, behind the two rows of seats with plenty of room for 5 passengers, has been outfitted with teakwood and distinctly resembles a quarterdeck – in keeping with the maritime look of the concept car.

The EDAG Biwak – the Beetle Estate Wagon inspired by the grunge movement

By - February 1, 2006 6 Pictures
February 2, 2006 EDAG Engineering + Design regularly comes up with interesting automotive concepts and has once again surprised us with the Biwak concept it will display at the Geneva Motor Show later this month. Like the Porsche Chopster SUV it showed last year, the Biwak is a derivative concept based on an existing design, though this time, it's based on Volkswagen's iconic Beetle. In this case, the classic, half-rounded beetle shape has been converted into an estate silhouette, creating extra room for various new professional and leisure applications. Now if you think the exterior treatment is provocative, wait until you get to the rationale. The EDAG Biwak look is “inspired by the spirit of the grunge movement of the early 1990s.” EDAG describes the Biwak thus: a daring mix of materials in the interior and exterior, and patina instead of a high-gloss finish dominate the appearance of the avantgarde Beetle, which signals understatement and individuality for a new generation of vehicle owners. The vehicle will be unveiled at a press conference on March 1, 2006. Read More
