The roads these days are dominated by Honda Civics, Hyundai Accents and Toyota Altis, the Philippines have a traffic dilemma that has been a headache even before electric cars were thought of. With new innovations come new vehicles and before you think about the next car to drive why don’t you step away from the image of the busy roads of Manila and appreciate the other innovative vehicles that was once just in games and movies but are now a reality. These vehicles are straight out of a kid’s imagination and made real, they may not be able to solve traffic problems but they are unique.
This sports car feels like it drove in straight from a spy movie, the most eye catching feature it boasts is the ability to dive underwater up to 10m. This sleek ride replaced its engines with electric motors, three to be exact. One of the motors is dedicated to the land operations of the car while the rest is meant to control the propellers while underwater. These are powered by rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries meaning there’s no need of gas. Besides being able to dive underwater this car is also able to drive autonomously on land using laser scanners.
This six wheeler super car is simply mind boggling, having two additional wheels in the front is the main innovative factor in this sports car. There are serious benefits in having six wheels instead of four in terms of safety and comfort. Putting aside the fact that it can run at 185mph max, focus on the design. Thanks to having those two extra wheels the suspension of the car is evenly distributed and gives a smoother ride. The evened out weight allows for much better grip especially in turning which lets it go at higher cornering speeds. The brakes are enhanced because that’ll be four tires instead of two and in case a blow out in one of your front tires occur, you’ll be fine because the additional wheels are more than enough to carry the weight of the car.
On a smaller scale the Segway Centaur’s simplistic design makes it a versatile ride that you can enjoy both indoors and outdoors. Its design also allows you to handle it in various terrains and it still sports the gyroscopic balancing technology making sure that you’ll be safe when you try that wheelie. The movement is easily controlled by your thumb through a throttle found on the right handle bar. The Segway Centaur also has strong suspension and an engaged position making sure you’re safe and in full control of the vehicle.
These are just a few of the innovative vehicles that have already been made and many more to come. There are tons of concepts waiting to be executed. Each day innovators are coming up with new ideas to put into vehicles and with the rate of progression in innovation you may see flying cars in the near future. Or the solution to great traffic could be coming soon.
