Man, talk about alternative fuels! Here's a car that runs on compressed air. And, in India anyway, will cost just $2 to fill up.
Compressed air has been talked about before, but this is the first one that we know of that is production ready. As a commenter posted (follow the link below): "And even if it doesn't turn out to be a winner, at least they're trying stuff over there. It would be nice if we'd do the same. Remember when we used to hear about good old American ingenuity?" Right on, brother!
By the way, even NYC tried the whole compressed air system... over 140 years ago. Of course, not only were there technical obstacles to overcome, but there political ones as well. Just like today. ahemoilmeninwhitehouseahem.
