Pholeum Transportation Unit with Efficient Next Generation Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

The idea of Pholeum transportation unit concept is based on the living cell tissue structure of a plant that can carry organic nutrients to any part of the plant where required. This vehicle has been designed as a personal mobility unit based on an ideal transportation means for mega-cities, which has made riding this eco-friendly car just equivalent to a bike down the street.

The minimalist interior features control steering pod, a mimicking game like control where brake and gas paddles embedded close to the steering wheel, offering next generation driving environment. The wheels are fully immersed with rubberized tire with independent spoke arrangement that allows the wheels to absorb the road bumps without having used the suspensions. Moreover, the out of the body wheel base has added few extra with the innovative look that the car already has with its clear body shell and green house like design.

The technology aspect of Pholeum includes a composition of memory plastic body work, allowing the material to be deformed back to its original shape under application of heat from scratches and dents. These plastic can be recycled further and remolded again into the same component if the damage is irreparable. The chassis is made of durable aluminum alloy, making the vehicle strong and lightweight. Comprehensive safety for the driver has been ensured with three external airbags, designed to deploy by sensing a fast automobile within a few meters of its radius through motion sensors. Each wheel contains quad electric motors empowered with efficient next generation hydrogen fuel cell technology.

aside from radical green everywhere, there is nothing new at all. same old boring design over and over. this is not what a concept car should look like. wait radical green everywhere is not new ether, Hyundai did that already ROLF

    Exactly, this looks awful like if a teenager would bang parts together and have his hipster dad add green plastic all over it. External airbag? How does that work in terms of safety? Being that it's like 90% windows, I can imagine cranking up the air conditioner in a desert at 100%, which should give the electric car maybe 12 minutes before it dies. There needs to be 1) Practicality 2) Futuristic Style that doesn't make the human race look like pansies and 3) Probability in concept cars. Car shows have a lot of awesome cars but find out that the market would prefer to have something less edgy, so they change the design slightly.
