  • Kia Sidewinder

    Environmental consciousness hits the raceways in the Kia Sidewinder design. Kia's entry in the design challenge incorporates a compressed natural gas turbine, which feeds electricity to high-torque in-wheel electric motors.

  • Mercedes Mojave Runner

    A gasoline-electric hybrid from Mercedes, the Mojave Runner features night vision, sandstorm radar and GPS sensors. It also comes with smart tires--they automatically change tread depth to match the road (or off-road) conditions.

  • Smart Rescue Vehicle

    No Southern California-inspired design contest would be complete without something for the beach. A work of the imagination inspired by the lifeguard life, the Smart Rescue Vehicle does double duty as a dune buggy and jet boat.
