Theme - Compact car for Mumbai, which will debut in 2018

Let me ask you what is your image of Mumbai. If you are given this design theme of “A Compact Car for Mumbai in 2018?, what kind of car would you propose?

Keywords which our instructors came up are such as “Energetic Emerging Country Vitality.” Mr. Can, our instructor said that designer should not be handcuffed with the Compact Car image to propose small size exterior. Rather he encourged and evaluated high for those proposal which expressed vital image by its shape or color.

So, please take a look for those got awarded in this design competition. And always think if you are in the contest, what kind of car will you propose.

FIRST PRIZE / Carlos Puerta Mascaró


He started design idea from TukTuk and developed to the final works. His idea creation process was clearly communicated and the process was very persuasive. As a result, the proposal achieved a high completion level. All three judging criteria, originality, attractiveness, and sketch skills are fully met. The car looks matching to the city of Mumbai. The finish of presentation material was excellent. (Yamashita)

The proposal has a design theme to match to the city of Mumbai. The green parts which connects Front to Rear produced a strong accent. The round shape of headlamp fits to the overall design. The proposal successfully sent the message of “Newness” and “Tomorrow.” (Nori)
