Tata Motors (India) is all geared up to produce the first commercial car to be powered by compressed air, that has been designed by ex-Formula one engineer Guy Nègre. Named The City Cat, the car runs on compressed air that “can be refueled at “air stations,” and overnight using a built-in compressor.” It hits top speed at 68MPH and has a range of 125 miles. The Air Car designers are developing a hybrid version of the car that compresses air as the car runs. The issue of the source of the electricity is still to be solved, so I guess a completely “Green Car” is yet way off!
All in all the car looks fit enough for the geek, however I wonder why they don’t have racy, sporty and trendy designs for these eco-friendly cars? I’m sure nature has nothing against sexy looks!
