Awareness about alternate sources of energy for driving our cars is increasing as fuel prices keep on increasing and condition our environment continues to deteriorate due to use of various toxic substances. We all know that fossil fuel sources are depleting and we will have to use of sources like electricity or hydrogen for running our cars. Let us look at some new transport concepts, which make use of these alternative energy sources.
It is a two-seat sports car having a tandem configuration. The car has been made with motivation from blackbird jet. Saab Blackbird uses several innovative features and is a good vehicle for busy roads. You can pull in the suspension a lot closer to your body, which makes it slimmer as well as taller.

Inspiration from nature has worked while the design of the car was made and takes into consideration how desert sand is shaped by the winds, water waves on ocean floor and how lava looks after a volcanic eruption.
In future, we will have to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel energy and start using alternative renewable sources so that there is less effect on our environment and costs are reduced as well.
