Exasis, the plastic car from Rinspeed

rinspeed_exasis.jpg

The Exasis is the first eco-type car that goes past the usual car idea to a newer construction idea than just the engine. Built entirely out of plastic (which could be Belu water bottle style compostable plastic) its panels have electrochemical properties that obviate the need for wiring; without wiring there's no insulation and the entire thing shrinks down. It's also made to be as aerodynamic as a cough-and-cold capsule (hence the biplane-style seating) and contains a CO2-emission-reducing bioethanol engine. It's obviously a concept car, but we welcome this ingenuity and look forward to their advanced prototypes. [GT]
