Volkswagen space up! blue
Vehicle type: 4-seat rwd mini-minivan
Engine: Fuel cell with electric motor in the rear
Seen: Los Angeles auto show
Designer: Klaus Bischoff, chief designer for VW brand
Whats cool: VW calls this the worlds first high-temperature fuel cell and says it is cheaper and weighs less than other fuel cells. It has a 60-mile range on batteries alone or a 200-mile range using the fuel cell and battery.
Will it be built? Diesel-powered version will be on the streets in 2 to 3 years.
Show reaction: Very positive, especially the styling touch inspired by VWs 1950s Samba van long, narrow skylights are in the roof, just above each door.
