The Rolls-Royce Eidolon Concept by designer Ying Hern Pow is a design study of a futuristic autonomous vehicle featuring omnidirectional wheels and an interior inspired by luxury yachts.


With his Eidolon Concept, Ying Hern Pow explores the innovative possibilities offered by technologies such as autonomous driving systems and omnidirectional wheels, combining them into a luxury package for the Rolls-Royce brand.

The sleek exterior is characterized by a length in the 6 meters range and a futuristic aesthetic with hubless wheels and an extremely shallow glazed area.

The Eidolon can operate in two modes: undriven and driven (semiautonomous mode). When passing from the first one to the second one, the cockpit area is raised, and the windshield area is increased for better visibility.

The interior takes inspiration from modern yacht design, and is divided into an upper and a lower deck.

The upper deck is similar to a convectional car cabin and can accommodate three passengers, with the driver sitting in the center seat like in a yacht’s captain bridge.

Passengers in this “lounge”-like area have a large cinema screen and can enjoy the outer environment thanks to the large panoramic roof made of opacity-adjustable electro-chromatic glass.

The whole cockpit can be easily accessed thanks to the opening system, with large vertical doors.

The generous dimensions are balanced by the adoption of the omnidirectional wheels, which allows the Eidolon to achieve a level of maneuverability higher to that of a C-segment sedan.

The drivetrain features Magnetic Pulse coupled with existing omniwheel technology.
