5 Incredible Transforming Concept Vehicles
Posted By Laura K. Cowan On July 8, 2011 @ 12:27 pm In automotive,Green Transportation,Innovation | 2 Comments
We love concept cars, and lately we have seen a whole slew that not only transform transportation into a more sustainable industry, but they actually transform themselves in the process. Whether it's a chassis that shortens to turn a cruiser into a city car, a boat that can be transfigured into a plane, or a car that morphs into a boat -- we love them all! Here's a peek into out five favorites, including the MAININKI Kakola Concept, Opel Icona, VIERIA, the Jon Salerno Habitat Micro Home, and the Octuri Yacht Plane.
What we love most about these concepts is that they are not only powered by green technology — most of them are EVs or a type of hybrid — but these vehicles look to solve future transportation, global warming, and overpopulation issues while going green. What do you think of these real-life transformers? Let us know in comments!
