You just hop in.  Another concept of great interest is the Morphoz.  It is an all electric SUV that can expand 16 inches from both the front and back of the vehicle, in case, for particular journeys, bigger is better.

This is a first in the United Kingdom.  The zero-emissions, iconic buses were manufactured by Wrightbus of Northern Ireland, which also has hydrogen buses operational in Dublin, Ireland.  Hydrogen for the buses is being produced in Cheshire with big hydrogen production plans in the mix. Going Totally Zero Emissions The city's transportation operator, Transport for London, has a sustainability goal of operating only zero emissions buses by 2030.  London is diversifying its green bus portfolio by adding the hydrogen buses to its electric fleet.  London has 500 electric bus

  UC Berkeley Students' Solar Car Zephyr                                                                      Source:  UC Berkeley Heading into Road Race Competition at the American Solar Challenge Engineering students at UC Berkeley have built a road-ready, registered solar car called Zephyr.  To say the least, the vehicle is eye-catching.  It closely resembles a flying saucer.  But, it is a fully functional solar/electric powered car. Zephyr has been cleared for driving and has a California license plate.  The UC Berkeley student inventors are putting Zephyr into national competition.  It's heading for the 5 day, 1,000 mile road race between Independence, Missouri and Las Vegas, N.M. called the American Solar Challenge, which is a race among solar cars for their solar power endurance. Unique & One-of-a-Kind One of the creators, recent graduate Alexander Zerkle, says that the EV "is a hand-made, unique, one-of-a-kind car".  He says it looks like a flying saucer b
