Who needs a road? Chinese designer creates eco-friendly all-terrain car for land, water and ice
The all-terrain vehicle, which has a top speed of 62mph and works like a hovercraft, can move seamlessly between different surfaces.
Designer Yuhan Zhang, 21, created the spectacular car – called the Volkswagen Aqua – for a competition sponsored by the German car manufacturer.
Concept: The Volkswagen Aqua car would be capable of travelling on road, sand, water and ice
It features a shiny, sleek design with four fans and integrated airbags that inflate to make it hover.
And it’s also environmentally-friendly as its two motors are powered by a hydrogen fuel cell – with zero carbon emissions.
One of the motors inflates a ‘skirt’ around the vehicle to lift it off the ground, while the other drives it forward and controls direction.
