Look into the future and this is what you might see: the Zep’Lin electric car. In other words, you might see cars that look like sailboats flying through the air. Designed for Renault by Damien Grossemy, the Zep’Lin electric car is a concept vehicle that uses elements from the sailboat.

Crafted with a vertical structure, Zep’Lin electric car uses a rudder system which allows it to change direction quickly and tilt towards the sun in order to utilize its solar panels (located on top of the vehicle) more effectively.
