An idea for a 'hover car' has been shown off by German car company Volkswagen.

The two-seater vehicle would hover just above the ground and run along an electromagnetic road network.

Volkswagen claim it will be safer and smoother than normal cars, as well as more environmentally friendly.

The concept came from ideas submitted by drivers in China and has been unveiled at a motor show there.
