Create a Concept Car which is designed to evolve within the cities of the future, whilst retaining the key values of the 21st century.

Becoming ever Greener is not only the mindset of the contemporary customers, it is also the philosophy of most manufacturers... It is in this context that Peugeot Blade is born. Meant for pure driving enjoyment, the car is also a technological marvel. Powered by Electricity, and having a electric motor in each wheel compartment, it serves to provide clean but powerful propulsion for the owner... The major design stroke however, is the pronounced positioning of a wind turbine at the rear of the car, serving to create curiosity and making a statement for its Green endeavors. The cabin body is designed to curve inwards towards the back of the cabin, such as to direct moving air into the empty space in between the rear pods that will serve to create a venturi to accelerate air towards the Wind turbine - Maximizing natural forces to create energy.

Basically, it's a two-seater powered by hybrid engine. Car is equipped with hi-tech gadgets, such as cameras, touch-screen controls, self cleaning glass etc. Materials used in this hybrid are carbon fibre, aluminium and polyurethane.
At least a few people have a clue it seems. Kudos to Peugeot for inspiring a "crowd-sourced" car design with their contest. Perhaps other car companies should sit up and take note? We pretty much had to beat Chevy over the head to get them to ship the Volt, didn't we?
