VW Fahrenheit / Concept Car

VW Fahrenheit
VW Fahrenheit

The concept car "VW Fahrenheit" deals with human mobility in a possible scenario, which could occur in the near future, basing upon global warming. In this scenario, the temperature-contrast rises. That means, there would be only extreme hot and cold areas left. Human life (and their mobility) could only be possible in the hot areas. This is the main topic of "VW Fahrenheit - mobility and heat". What are the advantages of heat, and which are the problems you would have to deal with? (heat protection, cooling, light weight construction, solar energy, ...)
