Master in Transportation Design  – a.y. 2015/16

Scilla, the concept car that embodies the tradition of three icons of the made in Italy – Istituto Europeo di Design, Quattroruote and Pininfarina – will be presented at the 87th edition of Geneva Motorshow (at Quattroruote booth/hall 5 – n.5032), the scene par excellence of worldwide releases. In the course of this powerful partnership different actors were involved and exchanged their views on the evolution of mobility and of the car design scenario: IED Turin managed by Riccardo Balbo, the Pininfarina Business Unit Design represented by Luca Borgogno Design Studio Chief and also former student of the Transportation design program at IED Turin, the leader automotive magazine, through the lectures held by Gian Luca Pellegrini head editor and other interventions by the editorial staff.


SCILLA (length 4,550 mm – width 1,955 mm – height 1,100 mm – pitch 3,530 mm) is a semi-autonomous driving vehicle with an innovative 1+1 seats layout, inspired by the world of aeronautics. It is powered by an electric plug-in/plug-off power train combined with rear wheels brush-less engines that allows good traction and control on the road. Protected by an innovative shell structure, its occupants can experience the emotion and pleasure of driving and project themselves into a hypothetical 2030 scenario. In fact, Scilla was conceived as a glider on the road, inside which one can distance himself from daily life. One of the distinguishing features is the man-machine interaction: the wheel, just like a human being, monitors the driving and is able to detect dangerous or critical situations.


The show car was manufactured by NCS-New Cast Services main sponsor for 2017 and partner of Istituto Europeo di Design for prototyping. However other partners supported the project on the technical side: AM Costruzione modelli, CAD Evolution, CMS Industries, Freeland, OZ Racing and Pirelli. The project has also been supported by La Fondation Dassault Systèmes.
Scilla was conceived by: Ramón Aguirre Dávalos (Mexico); Yusuf Atlamaz (Turkey); Ana María Bravo Sanabria (Colombia); Giovanni Bulgarelli (Italy); Ko-Han Hsu (Taiwan); Kaihang Huang (China); Abhijeet Kumar (India); Daniel Antony James Lourdusamy (India); Jayesh Ajay Naphade (India); José Rogelio Quesada Campos (Costa Rica); Allwyn Pushparaj Santha Suthan James (India); Igor Shenderey (Russia); Jaehyun Shin (South Korea); Yanyi Song (China); Sandeep Dilip Sutar (India) e Daniel Gilberto Teruel Valdenea (Mexico), students of the Master in Transportation design at IED Turin a.y. 2015/16
Coordinator of the Master in Transportation Design: Alessandro Cipolli
Other contributions to the project: Rawad Abou Zaki (Ergonomics); Alan Coda (3D Modelling); Vincenzo Greco (Maya); Pierfilippo Mancini (Maya); Emanuele Nava (Tutoring) e Davide Tealdi (Interior Design), lecturers at IED Turin.
