Ford Airstream Concept has made its debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Besides the unique design, what makes this vehicle exceptional is that it is also a plug-in electric hybrid hydrogen fuel cell vehicle as well, another first for Ford.
Ford realizes that this country needs a silver bullet when it comes to both green technology and open road travel and with a range of 305 miles per fill up, the Ford Airstream Concept vehicle shows what the future may hold.
Ford Motor Company and recreational vehicle maker Airstream combined forces on the space age design of this crossover concept vehicle. While the interior is said to remind one of the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, there is also definitely a hint of Austin Powers in the Ford Airstream is as well. Yeah, Baby!
While the Ford Airstream may never hit the jet stream, its aircraft design, complete with rivets reminds one that “better living through technology” is not just a motto but realistic potential as well.
In both May and August of 2006, I had blogged about how the ultimate green machine may very well one day be a plug-in electric hybrid hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. It’s good to see that the Ford Airstream has taken that dream one step closer to reality in a very short timeframe.
