  • Thedesign has beenawardedfirst prize in the "TheBestNautical/Boat" and "TheBestTransportationVehicle of theYear" categories at theInternationalDesignAward, 2007.

In the design, Volitan is inspired from a flying fish.(an extinction fish)It uses sails,wind and solar power to get around, It stores energy in batteries.

  • The engine doesnt need any oil to start. It uses the energy stored ın the batterıes .
  • So ıt ıs a green technology ,and doesnt pollute the enviroment.It produces clean and cheap energy.
