This vehicle features EV components in unique and innovative way that perhaps you’ve never seen before. The blue plate that you see at the front end is inductive charging, while at the rear end, you’ll find fast-charge plug. The battery itself is located at the center form of the car as part of aerodynamically sleek and polished body. If other concept cars hide control and drivetrain system, Valmet Dawn prefers to expose these components for display purposes in a way that easily understandable. It is hoped that through Valmet Dawn demonstration, there will be more exploration in developing fresh and modern concept of electric vehicle without sacrificing its performance and appearance.

Ozone Hydrogen Powered Car with 2 Giant Wheels

The new concept vehicle called ‘Ozone’ seems to revolutionize the way we commute. The vehicle works on hydrogen powered fuel cells and looks futuristic in every way possible. Also the thought and the concept seems to be fine, however the structure might make you feel uncomfortable in your seats. The body is encased between two giant wheels controlled by separate motors which are powered by fuel cells, though this two seater looks more like a design picked straight out of fantasy due to its semi transparent glass casing and controlled by joystick. The huge glass doors slide 360 degree into the symmetric metal body. It sure is one cool futuristic concept.
