Air Powered Cars Are Here!
Air Powered Cars Are Here!

With a range of over 100 miles, and a cost of about $1.00 per tank of air for the cost of electricity to fill-er-up, the prospects are stellar for this cool car! *If you had a windmill powered air compressor, either mechanical or electric generating, you could fill up basically for free. *

Eco-friendly car designed by MDI is powered by a compressed air engine.

Non-polluting AirPod has enough room for three adults and one child. It is controlled by a joystick instead of a regular steering wheel.
Four-wheeled version is currently in development. It will be manufactured and sold by Indian company Tata Motors. Expected price is $10,000.

Air pressure powered cars

Quote:
The engine is located underneath the car unlike regular cars, it is a four-cylinder piston engine just like a regular car, but there are significant differences, the engine weigh less than half of the regular engine. That is because many of its components are aluminum. The reason they can do that is because there is no combustion since the car is driven by air pressure. In fact, you can touch the engine while it is running and it would just feel warm.
