Big automobile companies aren’t usually associated with projects that warm the hearts of environmentalists but this General Motors-sponsored project is truly a breath of fresh air in more than one ways. Conceptualized by Lithuania-born Yana Briggs, the 2020 Chevrolet Era has been nicknamed the “Cleaner” by its designer and comes packed with some awesome planet-friendly features.
The 2 + 2 design proposes to have active light collector panels housed on the top of it while the model’s concave spherical surface would maximize the available area to the panels that would absorb sunlight to generate electricity to power the beast.
Streamlined lights placed along the car’s sides would indicate the charging process while a built-in O2 filter exhaust oxygen renewal system would cleanse the incoming polluted air as you drive.
The Era would also feature diamond jewelry-inspired LED headlight detail that would give it a chic softness. Whether the Art Center College of Design graduate actually gets to see this gem of a car winning the next World Solar Challenge soon or not, her motto for the design “Do What’s Overdue!” certainly promises great things for the future of ecofriendly cars!
