Space Up! Blue

We're looking forward to seeing this car on the roads. The Volkswagen Space Up! Blue is an electric/fuel-cell minivan inspired by the cult Fifties VW Samba bus.

Its lithium-ion battery allows it to travel 65 miles on a single charge, and its hydrogen-powered fuel cell extends this range by 155 miles. The batteries are further topped off by a rooftop solar panel.

There are skylights above each door, and most of its interior is made of recycled materials. It may take a while to get this version on the road, but rumor has it a diesel version will be out soon. RM

    Looks great…hope they don’t tantalize, only to disappoint as happened with the Microbus concept
