Visibility is vitally important in vehicles that travel at dangerous speeds, but in many ways, the Nissan Panorama has been designed more with the passenger in mind.
The hybrid EV incorporates an unusually expansive system of windowing which comprises two upward-opening transparent doors. Offering expansive views out the sides and the roof of the automobile, the occupants of the car are afforded an enhanced experience of road travel.
When parked, however, Victor Romero’s concept becomes all the more desirable. All four seats can be swiveled to face the center of the cabin where drinks and snacks can be had, and each can watch a beautiful sunset or a movie playing on the ceiling projector.

The Zoleco is a homemade eco-car that looks more like it belongs in the garage of George Jetson than Canadian DIYer Zoltan Bod. Bod’s unique car is designed to be as fuel-efficient as possible, with an amazing fuel rating of 151.1 mpg.
The Zoleco has been designed to cut, drag and weight, allowing it to nimbly slice through the air. Unlike most eco-cars with strange shapes, Zoleco is actually designed to be comfortable for its occupants and can seat four. The Zoleco’s lightweight body and unique design require very little engine power to propel the car. Bod estimates that a mere 8.2 horsepower would be enough to sustain the car at 65 mph. Bod is planning on further developing his eco-car with possible plans to sell home-build kits.
