The Volkswagen People’s Car Project brought a trio of concepts to Auto China 2012 in Beijing, two of which were realistic, one of which seems more out of this world than we originally assumed.

After garnering over 119,000 ideas on the People’s Car Project’s website, the German automaker picked three to show off as concepts. The Hover Car was one that we mostly read about, a two-seater city car that hovers just above the ground while emitting zero emissions. Volkswagen went the extra mile to showing off how the concept would work in a world with electromagnetic road networks.

The concept was designed by Jia Wang, who wanted to help propose a solution to all the traffic congestion in the city of Chengdu. The Hover Car is no doubt a small urban vehicle, but its spherical shape is what makes it interesting; giving it the versatility to maneuver around tight spaces and parking lots.

Could it become a reality? Probably not in the near future, but it’s definitely an interesting idea.

Watch the video of the Volkswagen Hover Car after the break. Just a heads up, it’s in Mandarin Chinese and doesn’t make any sense.
