The SHC is a futuristic car concept that features style and aerodynamics to illustrate a clear picture of the high-performance future transportation. The selection of materials and applications has helped it to achieve the ideal weight distribution which resulted to a fast, carefully directed and cutting-edge car design.
Featured with three powertrain alternatives including a hybrid/electric option, the car has achieved the credentials of being a sports car, while being completely eco-friendly. The chassis has been made with high tensile steel and aluminum, making the car lightweight and improved handling has been ensured with aluminum suspensions that reduces unsprung mass. The air-streamed front and rear window combines hydrophobic and super-fast screen heating technology that eliminates the requirement of wipers or washers and high-intensity LED has been used on the headlights, rear lights and lower fog lights for a clear view.
