To clear it up, Tongji Auto is the automobile engineering branch of the 1907 established Tongji University in Shanghai. Tongji Automotive Design & Research Institute Co. was founded in 2009 and since then it came up with a number of concept cars, among which is the one pictured here.

Design wise, the roadster has some interesting shapes, even if it has too small wheels for those big wheel arches and a strange windshield.

Small amounts of details are known for the concept, but we can tell you it is a roadster powered by a newly developed hydrogen-fuel battery, developed by Chinese and German scientist. There are two electric motors on each axle that sucks power from the battery pack, pushing up the car to a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph).
