Car Leaf

SAIC’s latest concept car, the Leaf, will debut at the Beijing Auto Show complete with an odd Leaf for a roof. However strange it may be, the Leaf’s foliage derived roof actually serves a useful purpose with it being able to give of O2 (i.e. Oxygen) instead of Co2 as with a regular automobile.

According to site the leafy roof is also a solar panel which will be able to produce and store electricity, and further more it will be able to move into position to gain the best sun light coverage.

The wheels of the Leaf are very much like the spinners on terrible gang banger cars, they turn with the wind as the car goes forward to develop electricity, giving the Leaf yet another power source.

Whilst the Leaf does have some radical ideas for its power source, its highly unlikely that the Leaf will be put into production.
