Clemson University’s Deep Orange 5 Concept Vehicle is Like a Nightclub on Wheels!

By: | April 28th, 2015

The Deep Orange 5 is a concept vehicle from Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research, developed with the help of General Motors.

The car itself comes equipped with double-hinged doors and seats that turn completely around, allowing for a VIP-like social atmosphere while on the road.

Basically, Deep Orange 5 is designed for millennials and as the developers say, for young adults who will “live in mega-cities in 2020.”

Leader of the Deep Orange program, Paul Venhovens, said the concept vehicle was “about creating a better value proposition for young adults that have little money to spare, less interest in vehicle ownership than previous generations, yet need a personal mobility solution that aligns with their complex lifestyle.”

The concept car has digital displays for the driver and the passenger, allowing one to potentially watch Netflix while the other browses through music.

In designing the vehicle, students were very in tune with what young adults would want in a vehicle, hence the reason it utilizes a carbon fiber body for better fuel efficiency.

I’m not sure the Deep Orange 5 will ever make it to production but if it does, there might be a whole wave of millennial-mobiles being thrown at us!
