2020 Hyundai City Car Concept

Hi guys, happy to meet you all with an interesting article about the latest cars available in the world. In this series here comes 2020 Hyundai's Family concept car. Daniel Nocera, who calls the method "artificial photosynthesis." Thepure oxygen helps replenish the "city" air we breathe, or can be
pumped back into the cabin (like they do in Las Vegas casinos) to give
you the extra boost you need on your way to work. Or an actual high
depending on the quantity of O2 were talking about - hows that for
air "conditioning". The cars body consists of transparent solar
panels, which "collect ambient light" and create electricity. Now,
that current doesnt simply power an electric motor. The electricity
is fed into a water tank to split the hydrogen from the oxygen. The
hydrogen is stored and used to power the vehicle while the pure oxygen
comes out the exhaust. The car essential functions like a plant does,
with its own version of photosynthesis. Funky, isnt it? Thats your
future city car au naturelle. Hey, if this works out, in 2020 you can
trade in your obsolete 10 year-old Chevy Volt for this oxygen-filled,
happy-making machine. Sounds like fun.
Looking ahead 10 years into the future, Nicolas Stone, a recent
graduate of the College for Creative Studies, has developed a city-car
concept as part of his thesis. The project was sponsored by Hyundai
and features a design based on advanced technologies from MIT. The car
was designed by Nicolas Stone, and sticking with the naturalist theme,
the interior cabin comes with a design that mimics "leaves growing off
a stem" and with the seating laid out asymmetrically. The cabins
principle is to keep things as "open and airy" as possible.
