This looks interesting. I know it doesn't have to do directly with Peak Oil topic, but it is related and I think everyone should take a look. Mods if you want to move it to Science and Tech area, be my guest.

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.

I found this article very interesting. If they are set to mass produce this product I wonder how long it will be before I can buy one here in Canada.

Watch the video, amazing stuff.

Is this the gleaming alloy air car that shoots towards me two lanes wide?

I'll kill it in my red Ferrari.

"Peeuh Ehhh." That was enough reason to watch that video in itself. Seriously, though, that was a really good find. Kind of a cut and dry video for a general understanding of the new technology. I can't wait to start seeing these around town.
