Green Car of the future? The Volkswagen Levitating Car

What do you think of this video for the Volkswagen Hover Concept Car?!
It’s a pod-like zero-emissions vehicle that uses electromagnetic road networks to float above the road.

I love sci-fi, and can’t wait to see a real Dalek on an anti-grav disk (I’d be looking for a nearby sofa to hide behind, though!). But my question for this concept, and for any new technology, would be what are the cradle to cradle costs, including all the environmental impacts, not just of the cars, but of the infrastructure, and the potential health risks posed by EM fields? At the end of the day, I think it is better for the planet and for people to just take a walk instead of drive : )

However, here at Dorset Energized we want to encourage people, including technogeeks, to make small steps in the right direction, so we recommend getting an electric car like the Nissan LEAF before considering a Levitating Car!
