7 Incredible Concept Cars from 2023

ev 1Top 7 Best Concept Cars from 2023

By John LeBlanc

2023 was a great one for concept car debuts. Here are our top picks of the most significant.

Automakers create concept cars for many reasons. They can hint at a future design direction, promote a new type or segment of vehicle, or, for the vast majority of recent examples, hint at a future production model set to go on sale to the public in the not-too-distant future. Alphabetically, here are the best concept cars that debuted in 2023.

BMW Vision Neue Klasse

Like the original Neue Klasse (German for "new class") cars that turned around the company's fortunes in the 1960s, the 2023 BMW Vision Neue Klasse concept hails a radical change in the company's future models. The modern Neue Klasse architecture will spawn a range of electric vehicles using BMW's sixth-generation eDrive battery technology, promising a 25 per cent increase in overall efficiency compared to its current EVs.

Externally, this year's Vision Neue Klasse concept features hallmark BMW design elements like the Hofmeister C-pillar kink and kidney grille housed in a reverse-angled shark nose. Muted textile surfaces herald a new take on luxury that offers another option compared to more extravagant rival brands. While the Vision Neue Klasse concept suggests a future 3 Series-sized sedan, don't be surprised if a Neue Klasse iX3 compact SUV arrives first.

Honda Prelude

Like BMW, Honda pushes the nostalgia button with its new Prelude concept. As one of the best-handling front-wheel drive cars of its time, four generations of Prelude 2+2 coupes put Honda on the map with driving enthusiasts between the late 1970s and 1990s. This year's Prelude concept aims for the same goals but with environmentally friendlier hybrid or EV power.

Although a concept, the Prelude doesn't promote wild features that couldn't be transferred to a final production version. Honda hasn't revealed any engineering specs on the Prelude's gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain or which platform it will use. But with Honda no longer offering two-door Civic or Accords, expect the production Prelude to ride on one of those existing platforms.
