The 2010 Geneva Motor Show has been a venue for a ton of hybrids and concept vehicles. It is a good thing to note though that even small players in the automotive design industry get to be noticed. The I.DE.A institute headquartered in Turin, Italy will have their phones ringing because of the Sofia Concept they showcased in the auto show.
The Sofia concept is a sedan made by a small design firm located in the outskirts of Moncalieri. The company is growing as it now provides full scale car designing, engineering, model building, prototype construction, and manufacture engineering.
The concept vehicle is a four-seater sedan that takes its design lines from famous Italian cars of the past and the curvy female body. It also revolves around a hybrid setup. The Sofia is just a design exercise though and we cannot expect the car to go to production by any chance.
The Sofia was unveiled just to showcase the design philosophy of the I.DE.A Institute and the talents of its teams. The chairman of the design firm revealed that they have formed ties to work with top car brands from Europe, South America, and Asia. Green Cars are Great, aren’t they?
