With fuel prices rising and supplies dwindling, more and more inventors are turning their creativity towards cars that work without the need for barrels of gasoline. True, there have been a number of vehicles released that run on electricity but now designers are turning to another precious resource – air.
It’s not a new concept, as early as the 1920s, car designers were dabbling with the idea of cars that could run off air alone – one involved cycling air through a propeller at the front of the car – but few came to fruition. Now, designers are again looking at how air can be used to power a car.

Yes it runs off air, but the air compressor is using power from a coal plant.
I've always thought if you put solar panels on the roof and wind turbines on the roof and hood, you'd get enough juice to keep going, and enough battery charge to get you back up to speed.
Nice find OP, we should have switched to electric cars years ago!
