This student-made EV purifies the air while driving

An electric car that purifies the air while driving may seem like a utopia, but a team of students from Eindhoven University of Technology has made it a reality. TU/ecomotive — as the team is called — has been creating inspiring, environmentally conscious concept cars for over a decade.

Of the concept vehicles presented by the students, last year’s Zem, which stands for “zero emission mobility”, is the most notable. It is a passenger car EV that not only paves the way to carbon neutrality of vehicles, but also cleans the air while driving, which in turn reduces CO2 emissions.
