Chinese Grad Student Designs VW Hovercraft

21 year-old graduate student, Zhang Yuhan has designed a zero emissions hovercraft concept called the Aqua Volkswagen. The Xihua University Industrial Design grad student submitted it as a finalist contestant for the CDN China Car Awards (a design competition). The entrants were to create a “Chinese off-road vehicle” by Volkswagen with “go-anywhere” capabilities that would allow the vehicle to freely travel the untamed wilderness of the Chinese countryside.

The hovercraft does not produce any Carbon emissions and is supported by a cushion of air, allowing it to cross a wide range of surfaces such as; lakes, rivers, wetlands, dirt roads, snow and ice.
