The electric racing bicycle is a concept from Anthony Cioffi, a student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. The electronic racing bike looks like a thoroughbred ready to take to the tracks. The designer’s thesis project is an aggressively designed bicycle that looks good enough to set the tracks on fire.
To meet logistic purposes, the flexibility of commercial road vehicle is essential. But transportation by road is one of the major reasons of environmental pollution and the planet is paying a high price to increase the economic efficiency. Chiron is a means of transportation designed to minimize the ecological damage which combines the flexibility of road vehicles with the environmental suitability of the railway. This design incorporates the latest 21st century engine that applies an algae-powered fuel cell which will surely increase the business efficiency by minimizing the fuel cost. Moreover, this concept includes satellite tracking system to navigate the supplementary dimension of railroad.
As passenger vehicles go clean, it is obvious that tractors and trucks will have to go the same way as well. Designer Josef Cadek’s Turbine concept seems to be a step in the right direction. The concept has a hybrid drivetrain gas with a cng-electric motor combination.
EU estimates say, goods transport in Europe will increase by 50 percent between 2000 and 2020, and that could very well mean perennially clogged roads if the transport system is not streamlined. Volvo Trucks has put a plan into operation, and the government of Sweden is considering the idea to make the transport of goods more efficient. While rail and seaborne traffic is bound to increase, it necessitates an efficient and environmentally sound road transport system as well.

The concept of airliner + cityloader Transport Efficiency 2020 offers the separation of long and short distance transportation freight traffic. Conceptualized by Aram Haydeyan, in collaboration with Stefan Brenn and Tobias Förtsch, the airliner + cityloader concept aims to fulfill the needs of these two types of transport. The airliner is an electric vehicle, with its electric engine, brakes, suspension and steering integrated in the rims. The vehicle uses a regenerative braking system. The metal air hybrid batteries can be charged via “plug and ride” at every trans-shipment center or city station. Depending on the size and amount of the freight carried, multiple modules can be used.
