its nice to see all these great ideas, but we all know whats going to happen.
if car isn't running on fuel it won't be running, cause the oil companies won't let that happen any time soon.

Judging by the music this is a joke video, you can't get something from nothing, take the fan off and make it more aerodynamic, you would probably save more energy than made from that fan.

#2 You are very right, this video shouldn't be a news report, it just shows that news sucks.

This car not only violates rules of thermodynamics, but also aesthetics.

#2 #3 #4 #5 Build a better car if you can!
until then - SHUT the F UP!

Well, it definitely is not a self-sustainable design, granted.. but the amount of electricity that's gained from the turbine still decreases overall energy consumption, even if only for a small margin.

#6 Well remove the turbine in front and it would be a better car.

It's basic physics, that wind turbine increases the drag ( = energy consumption) more than what you gain at the generator in terms of energy.

#6 It's not about "building a better car", it's about building something that follows the laws of physics.

This car is some kind of perpetual motion machine: utopia !

#6 google HHO or Oxyhydrogen and enjoy a lot of people who have "Discovered" a new very useful way of optimizing efficiency(for cars and not only) and read all the s..t about the oil companies stopping them from making bringing this miracle to the world... until then you STF Up and go to school ...

atleast he found a way to make a car without polluting the earth, you what have you done to decrease earth pollution? none i guess and yetwe still contribute on polluting the earth.

good job chinese guy. dont mind those fools who criticize your work as long as your happy and not doing any harm to others just go with it.

#6, #11 Totally agree with you!
He made it for around 1600$, no other pollution free car is that cheap

#2 I agree.
The energy created is equal the energy lost.
Even more energy is lost when the fan is not running. He would have to drive downhill all day to get a energy plus.
If he would just use a solarpanel as a roof then he would be really generating energy.
Even when he parks his car the battery would be loading.

Is this a Onion news report?

Or news for the brain-dead?

What an imbecile.
How about this for an added 'energy-saving' touch?
He could mount a mast and sail in the middle of the car and then, with the electricity generated by the front fan, he could power another fan at the back of the car, blowing air into the sail and propelling the car forward.

#15, that's the spirit! Blow your own sail!
#1, I totally agree, oil companies won't let that happen.
#2, you are not understanding. It's about politics, who cares about "laws of physics". It is preferable to break the laws of physics than pollute the air.
#12 YES. It is cheap. It is clean. That's all that matters. Only conspirators ask about if it actually work.
Who cares if it works! I'm sure it would sell well.
