One piece of extra-shiny eye candy at the recent Detroit Auto Show was Airstream and Ford’s “crossover” concept vehicle. While more car than livable trailer, the stunning, modern, and inhabitable vehicle is nevertheless a great example of mobile living and sleek design. The partnership between the two automotive companies resulted in a vehicle centered around the idea of the American Journey, roadtrips, wanderlust, and adventures. Its greenest and most cutting-edge feature is the newly developed HySeries Drive, an efficient powertrain technology that operates under electric power at all times while yielding a combined city/highway fuel economy of 40 miles per gallon. Its interior truly has the typical road-tripper in mind, with a rear “lounge” area and screen for entertainment and games. The screen also works as a light source, providing ambient mood settings or even a virtual fireplace.
