Volkswagen Develops Crowd-Sourced All-Electric Hover Car Concept

As part of its People's Car Project (PCP) in China, Volkswagen has developed a concept car based on a crowd-sourced idea for an all-electric hover car that it will debut at the Beijing Auto Show.

The car is a two-person city car that hovers above the ground and travels via electromagnetic roadways. The Hover Car looks a lot like a flattened fish bowl with its circular design and large glass panels. Simon Loasby, Head of Design at Volkswagen Group China, said "The creative ideas from the ‘People's Car Project' give us a valuable insight into the wishes of Chinese drivers. The trend is towards safe cars that can easily navigate overcrowded roads and have a personal, emotional and exciting design."

Out of 119,000 submitted ideas, the other two picked by Volkswagen to become concept cars were The Music Car, which features OLED lights that create light shows to the driver's music and The Smart Key, which is best price cialis online just what it sounds like -- a car featuring a touchscreen key that provides information on the car's fuel level, security and more.

None of the viagra for sale cars will go on to become production models, but Volkswagen says they will use the people-designed vehicles to inspire features in future car models. Darn. I really wanted that Hover Car.

It's great to see designers try something completely new and not just rehashing a typical car design.

Lots of questions, but I will keep them few:

1) How what are the power requirements/charge?
2) Safety, overcoming friction with electro-mag won't this increase everyday fender benders, or worse?
3) The infrastructure of cialis info putting down electromag roadways seems emense. We complain about developing infrastructure for EV charging. Wouldn't this be an order of magnatude worse?
Sorry Alex!

Hi, Alex, sorry I meant to make a positive vote on your comment, but I had my mouse too far over and hit the negative instead. I tried to change it, but... "can't vote more than once on a comment." I think you are on the right track. Just tweaking the same old concepts is NOT progress.

Floating anything has the mobility of a feather in the wind. Only in sci fi movies can a vehicle turn on a dime. Only way I can see around wide looping curves for turns is to have counter magnetic coils on the vehicle so it suddenly makes a field at 90 degrees from the inlaid road to jerk the viagra legal pod in a new direction. Hovering is cool and the concept is neat (though all 'glass' tends to wow)) buy cialis australia get REALLY hot inside).
Great marketing

None of this is real so no point speculating about the technical details, but the marketing aspect of this is really cool. VW is surely gonna pick up a few sales because of it. I'm sure the Chinese love being included in things, and this is definitely a way to include them.

It is really a good step by the Volkswagen team. But, as we know electric cars are used to control the pollution level of environment but after using this electric car it came to know that these cars are also not environment friendly. So dear can you please help me to know how these cars means electric cars can be beneficial for us. .

As we know our environment is getting polluted mostly because of the vehicles that we ride. So, to control this level of pollution the branded car makers of only best offers real cialis all over the world had decided to make an invention so called electric cars to overcome this problem. As we know Volkswagen always make cars that capture the most attention of the public so I am damn confident about the electric car concept of Volkswagen that it will be the best in the market. .

No doubt electric cars are friendly to our environment and our health and it is approved by our government. After that it consider as dead in market. As we know electric cars are cost effective but the major problem is charging station. The number of charging station is gradually increasing day by day. Now we can use electric vehicle without any problem. Everyone have to go for it for spend a healthy life.

This is the most amazing invention i have ever seen in cars. It just looks so beautiful. It seems like they are flying above the road. Electric vehicles are the vehicles which run by electricity. I wish i could drive this car. Thanks Volkswagen for such a beautiful invention.
The idea seems good

The way car flies seems good but I wonder if they can be able to fly to a greater height. The concept of flying car was introduced to ultimately fulfill two wishes. The first one is generic viagra next day delivery obvious to increase the efficiency and the other one is to reduce the very good site buy cialis overnight traffic amount on the roads and that can only be possible if they fly at a greater height.
Most amazing creation

Flying cars have been the most greatest invention ever. Volkswagen have invented one of such cars. But its bad that you can't fly much above the sky. Its operated to fly just above the road, it has some electromagnetic force which helps then to fly. There is a benefit of having flying car with you is that you don't have to wait for traffic, you can just fly off. It also has safety sensors within it which will save the car from being colliding to another car, that means there is no risks of accidents.

There were a time when driving car seems to be one of the most boring thing to do. But the scenario have changed now, thanks to phizer viagra made in canada high speed cars and the fun filled infotainment. This concept have almost vanished. Now with this addition of new flying car the future of rx online cialis car market seems to be bright, hoping for the best to come soon.

This is really a very great invention. We have been waiting for years for flying cars. This car will certainly give us the experience of flying cars but not so high. This car has maximum capability of flying at a certain distance. Due to some electromagnetic force, it has the capability to fly up to certain distance. Hope we will soon get to ride this car.
