Did you know 2.1 billion people don’t have access to clean and safe water at home? Due to poor sanitation and the dangerous consumption of dirty water, more than 700 children aged 5 or below die. That’s not taking into account the 800 women who face death due to preventable complications during pregnancy or childbirth.
In line with our obsession for cars, this World Water Day we explored, wait for it, amphibious vehicles! We’ve put together a list of our favourite car-boat hybrids, built for the sea and the motorway. Talk about off-roading!
Let’s start with the most mass-produced of the lot – the Volkswagen Schwimmwagen:
Next on the list is the Gibbs Aquada:
Thirdly, but perhaps one of the most exciting – the Rinspeed sQuba:
Flying the flag for Germany again - the Sealander Schwimmcaravan:
From caravan to bike, last but not least we have the Gibbs Biski:
