The spaceship-cum-HGV you see here is the Innotruck, which is one big fat feasibility study into the personal mobility issues of the future.

Built by the clever dudes and dudettes at the Technical University Munich (TUM), Innotruck is the embodiment of the university's 'Diesel Reloaded' project. It sounds like an eau de toilette pour hommes, but it actually aims to demonstrate how paradigm shifts in automotive, energy, and information technologies can help to address societal needs in future, we're told.
