Incredible Self-Driving Electric Car Can Vacuum Up Pollution From Other Vehicles



A new driverless electric car concept is capable of vacuuming up pollution left by other vehicles as it drives along, leaving clean air in its wake. The Airo could go into production at green-vehicle firm IM Motors as soon as 2023. It features a dining room-style space inside the cabin that can be turned into a double bed, allowing passengers to continue to sleep during a commute to work. The vehicle will run on electric power, producing no fossil fuel pollutants as it moves around the city, but it goes even further in its environmental ambition. It will be equipped with a state-of-the-art HEPA filtering system attached to the under-carriage that can clean up pollution particles. The seats rotate from a traditional forward-facing driving position to face each other for social activities such as dining on the four-leaf table that neatly folds away to transform the space into a lounge. Formed from industrial materials, including weathered steel, the charging station aims to become part of the urban fabric for decades to come.
