An Old Friend
As demand for environmental alternatives grows, some green-thinking automotive designers have gone above and beyond simple hybrid or energy-efficient cars to develop radically creative green vehicles in many senses of the word. Here are five of the most interesting, innovative, strange and downright bizarre green concept vehicles developed this past year.
MIT’s The City Car is a brilliantly green concept vehicle that boasts the convenience and stackability of shopping or airport cart. This idea “would combine the best features of mass transit, car-sharing, and personal vehicles in a high-density, high-convenience system.” These are not intended to be long-distance heavy-use transportation devices, but rather a short-stretch solution for connecting between mass and local transit.
