sQuba, finally an underwater car that I look good in (12 Photos)

The sQuba can dive up to 32.8 feet below the surface. It also has an open cockpit for ’safety reasons’ and the riders of the car have to breathe compressed air through built-in scuba masks. Not bad if you ask me.

In addition the sQuba is an electric car that uses rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and 3 electric motors for propulsion and it also is a zero-emission car. That’s right, this underwater gem of a car produces no exhaust emissions.

    There just has to be a good reason nobody buys these, but I can’t think of one.

      how about the lack of streets underwater?

    Why is that car still open top when its underwater and no sign of an oxygen tank

    • MichaelGS

      pic 8, you can see oxygen lines coming from valves behind their heads. Guessing the tanks have special storage areas

  • CunningLinguist

    they need torpedo launchers.

    I was going to say what a waste of a Lotus, but this is actually pretty cool

  • Dub

    I want one


    you know, when i drive a lotus i want to make sure it;s either the car or my massive penis that’s making the girl wet

    Good concept, bad design. why drive a car under water without a scuba suit? you’d freeze your sack off doing that in the winter.

  • giraffe

    that has got to be the happiest looking car ever… wheeeeeeeeeeee

    You perfectly ruined my $5000 tuxedo

    Nice, that car would rust away after one dip in saltwater

    • MichaelGS

      Im sure aluminium, carbon fibre, stainless steel, etc. wont rust as much as a normal car does

    Chive Quote “That’s right, this underwater gem of a car produces no exhaust emissions. ” Sooo electric cars are emission free? Where does the electricity come from? Where do batteries come from? Electric cars are far from emission free. Just saying.

    So now we have a vehicle that drives over coral reefs too!? I prefer the oil spill method of messing up the ocean, it’s more efficient. It would take a lot cars driving over/into coral reefs to equal the damage. If you really want to enjoy a coral reef do some real SCUBA diving.

    How would you steer it? It looks like it would just sink and need a tow truck to recover it. If the tanks store in the car, what happens when you are out of air? How does it get out of the water? So many questions…

    • MichaelGS

      The Idea is that it doesn’t sink and drive across the sea bed. It floats roughly 10m below the surface. Kinda like submarine… only smaller… and without a roof. You refill the tanks once theyre empty… much like you would a normal scuba tank. It steers via those rotating outlet jets you see on the side of the car below the wing mirrors. And unless you open the doors a bit when you get in it will flaot and behave more boat like.

      and @ Mark. You’re right, its not emmission free. In fact right now it’s greener to drive a small diesel car than an electric

    Does anyone else hear the Mario Bros water level music?

  • scooter

    Yeah but does it have a CD multichanger? Cup holders, AUX port for an mp3 player? These are the questions a buyer needs to know!
