I can’t really tell what it would ride like, but this Nissan IV concept car is, well, a bit eye-catching. The ultra lightweight car was designed for 1,000 pound challenge at the 2010 LA Auto Show. It looks about 2035, with electric power, and the use of “organic synthetics” – parts grown like pumpkins and rutabegas. A totally natural process, theoretically 100% sustainable and carbon-neutral. Seats for four. The car also sports a photo-voltaic rooftop, as well as a regenerative capacitor technology that returns 60% of kinetic energy spent.
I’ll be planting one next year.
