The Air Car - zero pollution and very low running costs
22-Apr-2008 (3 comments)

Many respected engineers have been trying for years to bring a compressed air car to market, believing strongly that compressed air can power a viable "zero pollution" car. Now the first commercial compressed air car is on the verge of production and beginning to attract a lot of attention, and with a recently signed partnership with Tata, India’s largest automotive manufacturer, the prospects of very cost-effective mass production are now a distinct possibility. The MiniC.A.T is a simple, light urban car, with a tubular chassis that is glued not welded and a body of fibreglass.

I saw a program about this car on the Discovery Channel. Simply wonderful... what are we waiting for? What's stopping mass production? When are we going to stop buying gasoline-powered cars?

It is very creative but yet not the only choice!

I personally
believe the electric cars( not the silly hybrid engines which the same
lazy gas guzzling engine gets boosted with a weak electric charge!)
will be the dominant substitute tech.

I have just posted a recent news on it.
