November 17th, 2010 by GreenDan Leave a reply »

This wonder was developed by General Motors Advanced Design Group for the 2010 LA Auto Show Design Challenge.

The eco-friendly Cadillac Aera weights only 1,000 pounds and its main advantage is economy.

The car will save you a lot of money because it will require refueling every 1,000 miles.

It is worth mentioning that designers thought about making the body of the vehicle from mono-formed 3D lattice, a very strong material.

The car was developed to run on a zero-emission motor that makes use of compressed air for propulsion. The engine uses air from a composite air storage tank.

It would be interesting to note that the compressed air vehicle is driven with the help of a wireless system that eliminates the need of using heavy electrical components.
