Thought you had seen everything regarding electric vehicle’s concepts? No quiet!
The Shanghai automotive industry corporation SAIC, will unveil it ‘Leaf Car’ during next week’s Beijing motor show.
This ambitious project is not scheduled for production for now. This car has been imagined to clean the air as you drive. It uses wind, solar and biological technology to power both of the seats. ‘Photovoltaic conversion cells’ will be the main power of the car. The solar cells on the leaf-shaped roof helps to increase the solar absorption and provide the best energy possible. There is also a microbial fuel cell on board that also charges the lithium-ion batteries.
‘The leaf’ has been designed to imitate plants behaviour while extracting CO2 from the air during photosynthesis.
Even though it’s not suppose to be build, the SAIC has several partnerships, including American car giant General Motors. The ‘car leaf’ could be in our streets sooner that we think!
