Select Series car of the future
Rockets and an on-board pizza oven!
Children imagine the perfect car of the future:London, [20th April 2017]
“Are we there yet?” is a very common question existing as long as there have been children, vehicles and road trips. Avis Car Rental UK knows that driving is far less stressful if the children are happy. Marking the launch of its new fleet of Avis Select Series cars, the company recently visited Merry Hill Infant School and Nursery to ask pupils aged 4-8 to share their vision of the perfect car of the future to ensure road trips are stress-free when they grow up. The results painted an imaginative picture of tomorrow’s world.
Rockets for extra zoom, an on-board pizza oven and a whopping price tag of £1,000; the family car of the future has it allUsing 3D printing technology, the company turned one child’s car of the future drawing into a real-life model. Here is what we have to look forward to in the car of the future.
Nina Bell, Avis Budget Group Managing Director for the Northern EMEA Region, said:
“These highly imaginative drawings show what children want in a car to have the ultimate experience. While we can’t yet make pizza in our cars, Avis Select Series is the perfect fit for today’s holiday road trip – offering our customers the best choice of cars and guaranteed make and model for a family driving experience to remember.”
