Peugeot ELA concept
The futuristic and orange Peugeot ELA concept
The Peugeot ELA concept from designerMohammad Ghezel is a car looking into the future where roads will support maglev-like movement of cars. The Ela is a hybrid that will move over a thin surface of air, with its movement powered byelectromagnetic energy from the future roads, and from harvesting solar energy using solar cells placed at the top of the car.
I would rant about the massive infrastructure such a concept will need, but as the KAIST electric vehicle project showed, such roads may indeed be feasible in the near future. The car will seat two, and will have great efficiency due to reduced friction and drag.
