This futuristic concept car Smart Forvision was created in collaboration with chemical maker BASF. Lightweight materials extensively used throughout the concept car allowed to make it lighter. The car made up of plastic and carbon fiber body parts. The Forvision also sports plastic wheels rather than conventional metal hoops, which save three kilograms at each corner. It has a transparent solar-panel roof which generates power to keep the cooling fans running even when stationary, see-through dashboard and clear OLEDs for internal lighting at night. These hexagonal transparent areas not only let in extra light to the Forvision’s cabin but also capture the sun’s energy to power the car’s interior lighting and climate system. Aluminum fiber paints insulate the car but allow for GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth signals to pass through unimpeded. [via]
