Yahoo Article On Air Powered Auto
[rews]The world's first commercial compressed air-powered vehicle is rolling towards the production line. The Air Car, developed by ex-Formula One
engineer Guy Nègre, will be built by India's largest automaker, Tata Motors.
The Air Car uses compressed air to push its engine's pistons. It is anticipated that approximately 6000 Air Cars will be cruising the streets of
India by 2008. If the manufacturers have no surprises up their exhaust pipes the car will be practical and reasonably priced. The CityCat model will
clock out at 68 mph with a driving range of 125 miles. Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
