Geely McCar – Click above to watch video after the jump

At the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show, Chinese automaker Geely displayed a concept vehicle called McCar. Apparently, McCar stands for "magic car" – or something like that.

The subcompact vehicle can accommodate four people and – are you ready for this? – one three-wheeled, foldable battery-powered scooter. Geely says that the electrified trike will come in handy in China's congested cities where traffic jams can stop four-wheeled vehicles in their tracks. Because who wants to walk?

Designed to be equipped with either a hybrid or fully electric powertrain (using a 12-kWh battery pack), Geely says that the McCar has a driving range of 93 miles and a top speed of 52 miles per hour when outfitted with the electric-only setup. In hybrid form, range hits 404 miles and max speed rises to 81 mph.

Hit the jump to watch Geely's subtitled promo video detailing the innovative design that allows the McCar to hide an electric trike inside.
