I’ve been meaning to post this one for a couple months now, but just haven’t gotten around to it.
I first heard about this car on Current. It runs completely on compressed air, has zero emissions and retails for less than the price of some high definition televisions.
It was designed in France and has been picked up by the Indian car manufacturer Tata Motors. It’s scheduled for production later this year and may hit the streets in Europe and India as early as 2009!
All of the information in the report is in metric, so I had to do some converting. The car can reach top speeds between 65-70 miles per hour. It would cost an estimated $2.25 for a fill up and can travel 125 miles before needing to refill. The least expensive model will start at a about $5,000.
No word on when we here in the United States might see these bad boys. But if we learned anything from Who Killed the Electric Car, we would be wise not to hold our breath.
