The main inspiration came from Nature: “[…] we usually do not realize that everything in nature has its specific curves and flowing lines and it is very rare to spot perfectly straight lines.”
“The main goal was to implement this design aspect into a car which creates a relaxing, energetic, vibrant and confident feeling.”
The name of the concept reflects the concept of curve: in mathematics, “Locus” is a collection of points which share a common property, usually forming a continuous figure such as a curve.
A curved sharp edged line starts at the very front, flowing through the middle section, slightly bending down after the A pillar and then rising up again at the rear wheel arches to follow its way back until the diffuser.
The same curve language is also applied to the greenhouse and the design of the windows.
The rear section is very organic with defined curves and subtle details, tail lights are designed to have integrated air outtakes underneath them to avoid any unnecessary details.
The sleek design of the rear volume is defined by the dual exhaust tail pipes located at the very sides and by the dark surfaces of the diffuser.
