The British vacuum cleaner manufacturer Dyson a is increasing in the vehicle industry. On the Details of the company’s founder, James Dyson is silent so far. However, SPIEGEL ONLINE explains, as he should be.
Would not be awarded the brand name Clean in the car world (at a formula-1 racing team) – hardly a car would have earned him like this. Because the electric car added to the area through which it travels, in a pure state. Two suction inlets to draw air, which is then completely freed of all pollutants and is fed into the interior.
The fine dust emissions of the car is minus 80 grams per Kilometer. An optional extension module with wiper function even makes it possible to clean the road.
Exhaust-ridden cities such as Stuttgart have already ordered hundreds of copies. With the vehicles of convicted car poser and racers to glide in the context of reintegration measures, with 30 miles an hour through the city.

Deutsche Bahn: The Big Car
For decades, the Deutsche Bahn (DB) is not sounds, it is a mobility group, just a dusty old wheel-and-Track-state operation. Now the company carries these thoughts to an end, with a car that is no longer tied to the Track.
With the railway car on the highway as drivers to do a completely new set of freedoms. So there is no belt requirement does not apply, since the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt feel for the vehicle responsible. Overwhelming the space. Bikes on the roof to transport the stroller to slide in the vehicle, and Skis upright to the wall to lean. Since the term gets big car with a auspicious of the tongue.
A pair of typical Eccentricities of the vehicle can get over. The doors open, often reluctantly, because the face detection is not yet Mature. She recognizes, for example, no small children, so that there is always an adult to take action. The fact that the car often stops for no apparent reason on the open road, sold the DB as a “Slow down your life”function. Well, then –
