Designer Giorgetto Giugiaro took inspiration from his past creations to pen the Sibylla luxury sedan concept, which also looks to a future when energy-efficient electric cars rule the roads.
The Sibylla, which Giugiaro developed with Chinese energy management company Envision, will debut at the Geneva auto show on March 6.
Its styling is reminiscent of the very low-slung cars designed in the 1960s and 1970s. The forward-hinged front canopy is similar to the 1963 Chevrolet Testudo, which was also penned by Giugiaro.
The nostalgic styling is juxtaposed with technologies that will become increasingly common. The sedan has an electric drivetrain powered by four motors. It uses Envision's energy management technology to embed the car into a broader renewable energy system across homes, communities and smart cities, using real-time computing and data analysis.
