The Skylon is a Futuristic Long-Distance Vehicle

 - Sep 3, 2010
Designed by Nikita Kalinin, a student from the Art Center College of Design, this futuristic long-distance cargo truck 'Skylon' was created for Volvo.

The design of Skylon is based on an eco concept which aims to help maintain an emission-free environment. The truck is solar-powered and the roof consists a solar panel that converts energy from the sun into electric power. The Skylon also features an auxiliary-powered trailer to ensure uninterrupted transportation if solar energy runs short.
