The Hyundai 2020 is a concept hybrid interpretation of a compact car they envision for 11 years in the future.

MIT engineering provides the technology that embraces solar panels to collect light for electricity while also using photosynthesis like a plant to generate more power. If this technology is proven, it could mean that cars would recharge in a matter or seconds.

Implications - Companies are investing money in creating concept cars that are environmentally friendly since the "eco-chic" trend is continually rising. Consumers are looking for products that minimize impact in an effort to ease their conscious about bad habits from the past and present. Consumers are willing to spend money to help do this.
