IM Motors in collaboration with Heatherwick Studio has created a new concept for the Airo electric car that will clean pollution as it drives. Revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show, the car will be fitted with a HEPA – high-efficiency particulate air– filtering system that will actively clean pollution. Stay with us to discover more about this fantastic news that will be a game-changer in the car world!
“Airo isn’t simply another electric car that doesn’t pollute the air” – Thomas Heatherwick
“Instead, using the latest HEPA-filter technology, it goes further by also vacuuming up pollutants from other cars as it drives along.” – Thomas Heatherwick
Designed with a flexible interior with rotating seats, the new IM Motors electric car is not just a driving machine, it can also be reconfigured as a multi-functional room. A four-leaf table can be unfolded, when the seats are facing each other, to create a space where people can have dinner, play games, or watch movies. This car is much more than just a car, it can be also a leisure area!
When activated in this mode, the glass roof of the IM Motors turns opaque in order to create a private area, due to the latest technology.
