All-Terrain Concept E-Car Is Eco Friendly With On-Board Wifi

If you're looking for an all-terrain vehicle but concerned about the environmental impact, check out the Nimbus e-Car. The concept, created by artist and designer Eduardo Galvani, is an electric minibus that seats up to five. It features a full panoramic glass windshield and offers fantastic views of the whatever outside scenery you encounter. Plus, the on-demand four-wheel drive means motorists aren’t limited to terrain.

The rounded Nimbus runs on a 130Kw electrical engine lithium-ion battery that works with the car’s micro combustion generator. Rooftop solar photovoltaic cells also generate power for the vehicle, and it conserves kinetic energy with a regenerative brake mechanism.

Strong-but-lightweight materials like carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum make up the body of the car. Besides being environmentally conscious, the Nimbus packs some must-have technology. There’s an on-board Wi-Fi hub with Bluetooth, USB ports, and a power outlet. A seven-inch tablet sits in the center console and provides weather information and details about the vehicle itself, such as tire pressure. The dashboard has a built-in GPS and displays the battery level, a velocimeter, and more. Galvani's innovative concept is a masterful adventurous vehicle for the modern explorer.
