Trend Reports: Petal Pushers
VW Space Up!Despite the VW camper van's hippie connotations, the things tended to be gas-guzzlers. By contrast, the new Space Up! van—inspired by the Bug as well as the original camper—is emissions-free, running on a high-temperature fuel cell and an electric motor (combined, they give you a range of 220 miles). There's even an optional solar panel for the roof. Once production starts (at the end of the decade), expect to see plenty of these at Burning Man—or your local Whole Foods parking lot.
