Tires to Turbines


Meet, Sam – a sleek electric vehicle designed with renewable energy in mind. It actually sports its own version of wind turbines to provide supplemental power.

Located in each wheel section, each time the wheels turn, the horizontal-axis turbines are activated. This produces electricity that can then be used to power other features like cabin lighting, entertainment systems, headlights and more. The energy created can also be harnessed and stored in the battery for enhanced range.

As far as looks go, Sam has an edgier aesthetic than your average pod-style EVs. You might even say it’s menacing! Its swept cockpit and near-seamless fender cladding make it as aggressive as it is aerodynamic.
