The automobile sector has been the field that has experienced the greatest change in the technological fields, perhaps in the shortest time. In addition to the entry of companies such as Apple and Xiaomi into the cool automobile industry, well-established automotive giants continue their preparations to start electric vehicle production. The most recent news in this sector came from the design company Xtend Design .

In this era, where the space race is accelerating like never before, the major automotive companies’ series seems to have its eyes on ‘lunar exploration vehicles’ . The US General Motors announced that they entered a joint project with the space company Lockheed Martin, and said that they would make a lunar exploration vehicle within the scope of this project. Similarly, Japanese automotive giant Toyota has started to design an exploration vehicle called ‘Lunar Cruiser’. “I’m in this race, too,” said Xtend Design, with the lunar exploration vehicle he designed.

Inspired by Skoda:

Tomas Rousek, the designer of the vehicle called ‘Luniaq’ He states that the reconnaissance vehicle can be used within the scope of NASA’s MMSEV, ‘Space Exploration Vehicle’ missions. Xtend Design, which has headquarters in the Czech Republic and London, introduced the exploration vehicle as part of ‘Czech Space Week’. During the presentation, the inspiration for the design of the vehicle was also mentioned.

Rousek states that they were inspired by Skoda in the design of the reconnaissance vehicle. The electric SUV model , called the Skoda Enyaq , is very similar to the Luniaq in name . Rousek states that the rover, which is currently only in the ‘design’ phase, was designed in accordance with the harsh conditions brought by the physical environment of the Moon. It is not known when humanity will drive around on the Moon, but it can be predicted that if technology continues to progress at this rate, it will not be too far away. It shouldn’t be surprising if we talk about drag racing on the Moon 50 years from now.
