This year's winner for the Los Angeles Auto Show's Design Challenge is a two-dimensional rendering of a 2015 Blue Sky Concept that concentrates on environmental sustainability called the HUMMER 02. The concept features a phototropic body shell that generates pure oxygen during the life of the vehicle. Algae-filled body panels convert carbon dioxide into pure oxygen that is later pushed out into the environment and contained by the vehicle.

Implications - The HUMMER 02 not only focuses on being eco-friendly, but also on the safety of its passengers. Frank Saucedo, who is the director of GM Advanced Design in California, explains that the concept vehicle was made specifically for people in Southern Californian outdoor enthusiasts.
