Nucleus represents the synthesis of futurism and a human-centered mindset. It takes the Icona Neo Concept one step further by reconsidering the very way that we use a vehicle. Neo introduced us to tomorrow, Nucleus will introduce us to after-tomorrow. The Icona Nucleus embodies Icona’s vision for the future of mobility. First seen in 2015, the Icona Neo concept demonstrated a very tangible tomorrow for the electric vehicle. With its fully autonomous driving level five, the Nucleus jumps two generations ahead. Inside the vehicle, the absence of a driver does not only mean the absence of a steering wheel and a dashboard, but the opportunity for a new understanding of mobile living spaces, where the focus is no longer the road but the destination.

Icon Volcano official launch. This new supercar has been revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show on April the 20th 2013. The Icona Vulcano brings together different skills and expertise of a very Italian tradition. The powertrain is the work of well-known Claudio Lombardi (AIPA), former powertrain technical director of Ferrari and mastermind of numerous world champion cars: a front engine V12 two-door two-seater car, reaching up to 900 horsepower through a masterful combination of combustion engine and electric motors. The top speed will be around 350 km/h, and 0-200 km/h will be under ten seconds. Alongside its astonishing performance and pedigree, the design of the Icona Vulcano is an evolution of the very advanced form language which was first introduced on the Icona Fuselage concept in 2011 by Samuel Chuffart, Icona's design director. The aim of the design approach is to express the amazing capabilities of this extremely powerful car, while maintaining harmonious and generous shapes: bringing together the Beauty and the Beast.

Following the ICONA lineage, the new NEO concept sets out to explore the inspirations and daily challenges of life in a busy metropolis like Shanghai. Like its sister Fuselage, NEO is a 4-seater vehicle whose design is adapted to the reality of an electrically powered package. However, the aim of NEO is not just to provide the balance of style and maximized practicality expected from a modern city car. NEO’s bold styling and asymmetric design theme combine clear lines inspired by the latest architecture trend with sensual dynamic automotive sculpting. The inspiration for NEO is derived from the latest architectural trends which have reshaped the landscape of Shanghai, the place where the car was designed. Its sharp and contrasted lines combine simple geometry and sensual surface transitions. The architecture of the passenger layout is also different. The car interior has also evolved with a more passenger-orientated layout: instead of solely focusing on the road straight ahead, rear passengers can enjoy a wrap-around ottoman-style rear bench which takes advantage of the absence of a rear left door. The technology of this electric concept is a motor in wheel application with a total of 21 kw, giving a top speed of 120 km/hour and a city driving range of 150km, thanks to the optimized lightweight body. It was developed by Icona's technical partners, ACTUA and Italtecnica, based in Italy.

The design is approachable, not intimidating. Its light communication signature faces outwards rather than forwards: the intention is to provide an immediate and intuitive connection for the user and for people adjacent to the vehicle. The streamlined surfaces and a solid double-face silhouette underline the full versatility of this vehicle, so simple in its look and so rich in its performance.
