College students from Aston University have built a hydrogen-powered eco car that boasts a plywood and cardboard chassis. That’s right, it “runs on hydrogen, has a body made from cardboard sandwiched between plywood certified by the British Forestry Commission; its tire covers are made from bio-resin, infused with hessian fibers, with the whole structure collapsible for easy delivery.”


‘As it’s an eco-marathon, we are trying to be as sustainable as possible in the entire design of the car- making the chassis out of cardboard and plywood and using bio-resin infused fibres for body panels.’ The car was built by a team of undergraduate Engineering and Design students in Birmingham, UK. It has already won a design award in a competition against 200 design teams from 24 different universities.
