Volkswagen called for innovative car concepts. Out of 119,000 ideas and 33 million website hits, a girl in China responded to the call with The VW Hover car.
The idea is that thrusters formed in the back of the car would propel it forward. Getting the “car” to work for real would require electromagnetic strips embedded into the roads below it, creating the hovering effect via electromagnetic suspension.
The Hover Car impressed Volkswagen so much they decided to create a short CGI YouTube video. The video below envisions the VW Hover Car flying through the streets of Beijing, China. Volkswagen rewarded the girl's parent's by enabling them to "test drive" the vehicle in the simulated video.
