Drivers are dreaming of the day when fuel prices drop, but a much more sustainable fantasy is one that involves the BASF Smart ForVision. The compact concept car is the product of a collaboration between a chemical developer and the automotive manufacturer, aiming to increase the efficiency, eco-friendliness and luxury of the urban auto.

One of the greatest features that this electric vehicle boasts is the honeycomb transparent roof. The hexagonal perforations act as a sunroof, but they have also been outfitted with see-through solar panels.

The energy that the top of the conveyance collects from the rays above is used to power the entertainment system and the fans inside the BASF Smart ForVision, keeping it cool even when the ignition is off.
