Zetra Extreme Weather Vehicle: this is surely the next-generation car, after the electric car. Still in a concept phase (designer: Adis Sabic) this vehicle can evacuate a family of 4 to 5 persons when a natural catastrophe is approaching. Zetra can absorb many shocks like rocks, road signs, and even other vehicles thanks to a certain kind of absorbent gel and a structure in polycarbonate. Moreover, interior is on suspensions, in order to increase the shock absorption effect.
