Remember the GMC PAD (pictured)? That was General Motors entry to the Los Angeles Auto Show's Design Challenge, "An LA Adventure". Except for some pictures and some general statements as the vehicle being powered by a diesel-electric hybrid system, very little information was provided.

Now gizmag provides a detailed exploration of this unique vehicle. GM's tagline 'Why commute? Adapt', is supported by onboard fuel and water supplies; solar-powered cells; and continuous Direct TV and XM radio. And a spa! Having been caught up in L.A.'s infamous traffic jams, it would have been heavenly.
