Imagine if you will, a car with zero emissions, goes 68 mph, has a range of up to 186 miles, and doesn’t use a drop of gasoline.
You can read all about it’s amazing engine on the website. It runs on compressed air and uses 1 liter of vegetable oil as a lubricant, which needs only be changed once every 31,000 miles.
They’re also talking about building a hybrid engine that has the ability to also burn gasoline (or diesel, ethanol, etc), , so you can go further distances (the on board computer will automatically switch from air to gas when needed).
While it probably wouldn’t be your first choice in vehicles to drive across the country in, it makes perfect sense for a metro commuter (I drive 34 miles a day to and from work… a tank of air would last me a week, the same as a tank of gas does now).
They expect the price to be about $11,000 (which is stupid cheap, since you don’t need to pay for much else after you buy it).
Yes indeed… I want one!
Here’s a photo gallery of some of the models they’re proposing to sell in India.
