Introducing sQuba, the worlds first diving car that not only drives on roads autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or further assistance — don’t ask why), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). Again, the point of this function is rather mysterious.
An electric motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.
