The vehicle is designed for Glide X 2020 which is scheduled to take place in China and aims at the ordinary Chinese who want to learn the basics of driving. Powered by lithium-ion batteries and equipped with embedded electromagnet accelerators and portable auxiliary power unit for magnetic roads, it can accommodate 3 people.
2. Hydrogen-fueled 3 Wheeler
This elegantly styled 3 wheeler is designed by Daniel Julier, an industrial designer. The car has a rear seat which is collapsible and hence the space can be utilised as a trunk as well when the seat is not in use. An âin wheel motorâ inside the rear wheel of the car will drive the vehicle and the hydrogen tank and the fuel cell are located under the hood.
3. Peugeot Shoo Car Concept
The Shoo car is an eco friendly and green car that has a solar panel on its roof. The solar panel conserves solar energy which gets transformed to electrical energy that helps in running the vehicle. The triangular shape, sleep design and floating parts all add to its overall charm.
Electric cars are slowly captivating the imagination of many car lovers and going by the no electricity and green policy that many concept designers have adopted, these cars are all set to rule the world, without compromising on the thrill of driving a noisy sports car.

The car comes with 4 electromagnetic wheels, each one made of two sliding rings, the outer ring a permanent magnet and inner ring, an electromagnet. The battery activates the electromagnet and the two magnets create a repulsive force which moves the vehicle. Breaking system works by facing opposite poles of the wheels towards each other.
6. Nicholasâ futuristic concept vehicle
This two wheeled car by Nicholas Holland is a personal car that looks more like a bike. The gigantic loop that passes through the front wheel of the car produces magnetic field which is used for moving the car. The magnetic field also reduces friction which makes the car wonderfully energy efficient. The forward and backward movement spins the wheel and rotates the axis as you steer.
7. Opel Flow solar-powered concept

The car has solar panels on the roof and wind turbines on the wheels so that both solar as well as wind energy can be utilised for its use, making it work on sunny as well as windy days.
Origin is an eco friendly vehicle that uses transparent solar cells as the wind shield through which electricity is generated from almost all angles. It also comes with a linear pedalling charging system which helps in charging through kinetic energy as well and also to push the Michelin Active wheel at the back.
10. Hydrogen powered Audi concept car
