While you pine for the LA Auto Show, 2009, to portray some unique future vehicle, here’s a blast from the past i.e. the most inspiring eco-car dubbed Chapparal Volt. Showcased at the LA Times Grand Prix, 2008, the concept car is reported to create a new category of racing i.e. the eco-triathlon. Since it’s almost impossible to survive in the near future with scanty conventional fuel resources, General Motors foresaw what could be the future of green transportation.

Hoping to utilize the basic elements to power its concept-car, Chaparral Volt, it pools Earth, Wind and Fire together. Advanced EREV propulsion, generation and management system and energy collection is what it aims at. It will make use of regenerative braking via a three-fold mechanism involving earth’s gravity, aero-thermal resistance and momentum-capture regeneration. Moreover, it utilizes rear turbine extractors for power cell cooling and aero-assist braking. Also, there’re the effective solar thin-film panels to ensure it becomes Chaparral’s primary source of energy.
