The Aqua Concept is a futuristic hovercraft (ACV – Air Cushion Vehicle) powered by Hydrogen and propelled by impellers.

The project was presented CDN Car Design Awards and was conceived as an off-road vehicle targeted to Chinese customers.

The hovercraft was chosen for its ability to travel equally well over land, ice, and water, thus resulting quite suitable for China’s wide landform range of wetlands.

Aqua features a powertrain with several engines, the main one is located under the chassis, which and is responsible for lifting the vehicle by forcing high pressure air under the craft.

Additional engines provide thrust in order to propel the craft.

As the author explains, “Aqua interprets the philosophy of Volkswagen Design with a total absence of cut lines.”

The doors are located at the rear. The two additional rear propellers give a visual impression of conventional wheels.
