Designed by Chinese designer Yuhan Zhang, a graduate from Xihua University in Industrial Design, the concept is proposed to be manufactured from lightweight yet very durable material.

The acclaimed CDN Car Design Awards China committee shortlisted this hovercraft under the “Chinese off-road Vehicle” category.

The concept is installed with two motors, the primary is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell and is used to drive the main fan which inflates the skirt around the vehicle and raises the Aqua just above the ground. On the other hand, the fans at the rear of the vehicle are powered by individual electric motors to provide forward thrust and directional control.
