Xscape is the 21st century equivalent of a 1900s carriage

The Xscape is Shengjie Wang's vision of what a car will look like in 2030. With its Tron-like wheels and slim profile, we think the Xscape looks more like an updated version of a carriage instead.

Shengjie Wang really went to town with his final project design. The Xscape is all about flexibility. Nearly every component in the vehicle retracts, expands or contracts to minimize obtrusiveness.

If Sherlock Holmes needed a 21st century lift, the Xscape would be quite the right fit. But what about Watson, you say? The Xscape's expandable body can open up to reveal another seat.
