2011: Showcase of Selected Entrants

The 2011 Michelin Challenge Design, “Plus 10! The Best is Yet to Come,” celebrated the 10th year of this global transportation design competition by encouraging designers to present a vehicle that people in their region would enjoy using in the year 2021.

The 2011 Challenge resonated, and Michelin was amazed to see registrations double from prior years. With 1000 registrations and more than 500 entries, the jury selected 34 for display at the 2011 North American International Auto Show. These works were displayed along with the futuristic General Motors EN-V all-electric city commuter concepts and scale models developed by Hyundai designers. The Hyundai models were developed in response to an internal Hyundai competition called “myBaby: Visionary Transportation Projects.”
