Yesterday Michelin announced the winners of its annual ‘Mobility for All’ International Design Competition. Encouragingly, most of the winners submitted concepts based on electric vehicle technologies.

To be clear, these concepts have very little chance of making it into actual end products, but regardless, when electric vehicles dominate a list of concepts, it is a good indicator of where the future is going.

Here’s a few of my favorites from Michelin’s list of winners:

Nathan Allen of Redding, Calif., for design entry “Stator Scooter”

Edgar Andres Sarmiento Garcia of Bogota, Colombia, for design entry “Arriero”

Hung-Ju Lee of Taiwan, for design entry “Loxodon”
