A newly built car in Netherland made with biodegradable natural materials has passed road safety tests.
The car, LINA, built by a team of students, TU Ecomotive, from Eindhoven University of Technology, was launched earlier this year.
The lightweight structure of the car is as a result of materials like sugar beet and flax used which requires only 20% of the energy used in making custom aluminum or carbon-fibre based cars.
The university says the concept car will undergo a few final adaptations before being allowed on public roads later this month.
The University has decided to run more tests on the model car before releasing it to the public market later this month.
Dan Simmons was the first person outside of the team who has been allowed to take it for a test drive.
