The Ideal Clean Car: A Student’s Utopian Vision

the ideal clean car  a student s utopian vision | Upload

How about driving a car, fully made out of recycled plastic? A Russian design student by the name of Nikita Konopatov came up with a unique proposal for tackling the persistent issue of polluting car manufacturing - as well as getting rid of some of that plastic that we already have plenty of. The ideal clean car: a student’s utopian vision tells the story.

Finding The Car Of The Future

The gas-powered vehicles are on the way out, that much we all agree on. Yet their numbers do not seem to be dwindling as much as they should. This is why initiatives like this one pioneered by Mr. Konopatov are so admirable. His proposal does not just allow for a hydrogen-powered engine, it is also fun and playful to look at - others have compared it to a cute UFO or spaceship, and I wholeheartedly agree. It is different. Quirky.

His design was part of an initiative as launched by the Volkswagen Group Future Center Europe in Potsdam, Germany. The company set it up to find the sustainable mobility concepts of the future, and the shape and functioning of this car are living proof of the viability of this idea. The car looks like a large cylindrical barrel, that offers room for a driver, sandwiched in-between two smaller cylindrical barrels that roll around to move the car.

 

At the same time, it offers room for a solution that many have already dismissed: hydrogen fuel cells, that, for now, only a handful of manufacturers are still seriously working on - including Toyota, Hyundai and Honda. It seems only fitting that this Russian designer chose this exact method to fuel his utopian vision.

Hydrogen Engine As The Most Sustainable Choice

Konopatov himself explained this choice, while claiming that the car can solve two problems in one go - the plastic crisis and the rising emissions. “A car with a hydrogen engine can reduce the amount of exhaust gases. The exhaust of a hydrogen-powered car is environmentally friendly. Electric vehicles do not pollute the air, but the production of electric vehicles pollutes the environment, which is mainly due to the energy-intensive production of batteries.

And even if the arguments for sustainability do not sway you, the really cool design might.

Before you go!
