One of the great, unexploited virtues of cars is that they produce any exhaust. As we all know a popular method of suicide, a car in an enclosed space is swiftly But designers are only now beginning to that EVs present an opportunity for to travel underground, not only in strictly controlled and ventilated but weaving in and out of buildings at will.

Just that kind of is being proposed in Japan, and already up and running at a new utopian in Abu Dhabi.

It’s somewhat that these utopian visions are being proposed in that made their spreading internal-combustion engines the globe (Japan) or pumping the tanks full of oil (Abu has 10 percent of the world’s reserves). neither of these projects be viable were it not for the ubiquitous

No cars will be allowed in the which should do wonders for air Here’s what it looks on a fanciful video:

The pod network is to 85 stations, and the fleet is projected to 130,000 trips daily. The themselves were shaped by Italian car designer Zagato . and by 2getthere in the Netherlands. The pods’ batteries will be wholly with solar energy, and a 37-mile range.

The longest city routes take only 10 minutes of

I’m presuming that the will be owned by the city, and will use them as they do the white bicycles of Paris †one, and when you’re leave it at the station. Residents can be monthly for services like but in Abu Dhabi that may not even be All that oil money, you see.
