Cars on airmAsterdam (103457) writes "Ideas to run vehicles and more specifically cars on air aren't new. Guy Negre's "zero pollution" (hm... how do they compress air?) car runs on compressed air.
In February, India's largest car company Tata Motors announced to have such cars produced by 2008; serious competition for NASA's car of the future . The car needs 300 liters of 300 bar compressed air on board to drive 200 km at 110 kmh (68 mph). The cars are to be produced locally. According to De Standaard (article in dutch) Jan Peetermans of Wommelgem plans to produce small MDI-based citycars out of glued together polyester and aluminium parts in Belgium by the end of next year. The cheapest model is expected to be priced at 4.000 Euro."
