Volvo’s Air Motion Concept Is A Wild Imagination

Volvo’s Air Motion Concept will use the power of the wind to propel itself…..

What if you could have a vehicle that is lighter than an F1 car but can seat upto 3 and runs on something other than familiar fuel sources? Sounds like a product of someone’s day dream, isn’t it?? For Swedish car maker Volvo, this is much closer to the reality than one would imagine, with its new Air Motion Concept!

Designed like a clam shell and sculptured from ultra-light carbonfibre in a beautiful Scandinavian body, this car tips the scales at just 450 kgs! A powerful yet simple compressed air motion has been used for propulsion instead of a conventional internal combustion engine. 

This motor cools down under load instead of heating up, and as a result heavy cooling system could be ditched in the concept. To compress the air needed for the centrally mounted air tank, Air Replenishment Sites are used. Powered by air turbines floating 300m in the air they harness wind power and convert it to electricity to provide the compression. 

The concept embodies Volvo’s dream of a clean and safe, yet pleasurable driving experience. 
Long live Volvo…..

Dhiyanesh is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, so, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He likes sedans of 90s era, esp W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. Apart from usual motoring stuffs, he maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. He owns a 1999 Fiat Siena passionately, and drives a Ford Fiesta.
