The Aiolos Concept [1] from designer Kyoung Soo Na is a proposed solution to the air pollution [2] of South Korea. In the Aiolos, you can drive to work in a wind turbine [3], which generates more energy [4] the faster you drive, and then plug in to your office’s wind-powered energy grid to power up.

Unlike some fan-powered cars that place a propeller under the vehicle at odd angles, this looks like it could actually work. There isn’t much room for carpooling in the Aiolos, though. It’s a one-seater that is purpose-built for commuting. Also less than practical is the fact that it appears you need to have the vehicle’s door open to plug in [5] for charging.
