The 'air car' plugs into a wall outlet, allowing an on-board compressor to pressurize the car's air tank to 4,500 pounds per square inch. It takes about four hours to get the tank to full pressure and the cold air is then released gradually to power the car's pistons. Only fresh air comes out of the almost frozen exhaust pipe at low speeds.
The technology pushes the car up to speeds of 35MPH. To go faster a small conventionally fueled engine kicks in to run a heater that warms the air and speeds its release. The engine also refills the air tank. French startup Zero Pollution Motors plans to launch the air car in America by early 2011

Yeah this is not new.
The air car was being invented ages ago by a guy in France.
I guess they must be mass producing it now.
But umm imagine the cost of electricity to charge it after the carbon taxes?
I guess we could make Huge Solar service stations with massive solar panels and batteries to charge the air car's.
