Eco-friendly all terrain car for land, water and ice

Source: dailymail.co.uk

A Chinese inventor has come up with an incredible new design for a car that will work on tarmac, sand, ice… and even water.

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.

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.

Mr Zhang said: ‘There is no better form of transport than an air cushion vehicle because it travels equally well over land, ice and water.

‘I hope Aqua will become an affordable supercar that is available to the general public one day.’

The competition asked designers to come up with a ‘Chinese off-road vehicle’. Aqua is based on technology that is currently available.
