Hardcore gearheads may have a tough time understanding the P.F.U.V. concept car. For one, it only seats one person and is powered by electricity. Also, designer Eduardo Díaz Tostado's concept is meant to be folded when parked. Tostado's design is futuristic, to say the least, and is meant to help save space and the environment.

The P.F.U.V. concept car would measure only 30 percent longer than a normal bicycle and would feature in-wheel electric motors. The idea of a folding car isn't groundbreaking, but an EV that is both tiny and can fold is an idea worth taking notice of. While the lightweight concept looks more like a lounge chair on wheels than a traditional car, it could help ease traffic and parking congestion while making the Earth a slightly greener place.
