The Rinspeed sQuba! Swiss-made, goes like clockwork, up to 10 metres under water.
"Yeah, well I have a Swiss watch that I can take 50 metres under water", you say.
But, hang on, I'm talking about an emission-free electric car that can go on road, on water, and under it.
Remember James Bond Roger Moore taking his Lotus under water in "The Spy Who Loved Me", in 1977? Well, that was an animation. The sQuba is real.
Rinspeed's boss, Frank Rinderknecht, is a James bond fan and, for the last thirty years, pondered on how to bring this concept to life. He's done it. He's taken a Lotus Elise car and remade it.
Now it's an open-topped roadster with three electric motors in the back. One provides propulsion on the road. The other two drive its propellors under water. There are two jet drives in the bow to propel the vehicle underwater when diving.
Air for the driver and passenger comes from its own integrated tank of compressed air. Channel crossings or island hopping will never be the same!
And like all true plug-in
its greenhouse gas emissions are zero.
