A 3D-Printed Utility Vehicle (PUV) can power a home.

AutoBlog's Translogic comes up with new episodes filled with mind blowing concepts every other day. In the latest episode they introduced the concept of a new 3D printed car.

The show host Jonathan Buckley went to Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee in order to see this new invention. It was a 3D printed utility vehicle aka PUV. This PUV is created by US Department of Energy. 

This vehicle is nothing short of amazing. It uses an electric-hybrid propulsion system. It also has a range extending compressed natural gas generator. Its amazing features don’t halt here. It has so much more to offer us.

This PUV is able to get charged from a solar 3D-printed home. Along with that it has the ability to send energy to home by vehicle-to-grid charging. 

This extremely advanced vehicle is printed from the type of plastic which is pretty similar to the ones used in Legos. However it is supported by carbon fiber in order to make it more sound and stable. The host took the car for a drive and saw what actually the car was able to do. 

Another excellent thing about this PUV is that it can send energy to your house wirelessly too! Amazing is the only word that we can find to describe this technology. We will get back to you as soon as we will find more news on this topic.
