The futuristic "Mars Rover Concept Vehicle" was unveiled on June 5th 2017 at NASA's kickoff event at the Kennedy Space Centre Visitor's Complex for their "Summer of Mars" promotion campaign. It was designed for a crew of four people and operates on an electric motor, powered by solar panels and a 700-volt battery. The rover separates in the middle with the front area designed for scouting and is equipped with a radio and navigation provided by the Global Positioning System. The back section serves as a laboratory which can disconnect for autonomous research.

Measuring 28 feet long, 14 feet wide and 11 feet tall, the Mars Rover Concept Vehicle has been designed by the Parker Brothers Concepts, who are widely known in the US for building movie themed and futuristic vehicles like the Light-Cycle from the sci-fi film "Tron: Legacy" and the Batmobile from the "The Dark Knight".
