Typically, an automaker will exhibit a concept cars as a prototype, a way to show off new technologies and radical styling without committing to full production. This allows the company to measure the public's reaction to the design and, should the response be negative, affords plausible deniability that "well, it's just a concept, we weren't really going to add this to the lineup."
