Never heard of such a thing - a compressed air car!
Apparently, they Pretty cool idea, if it works as advertised.
Ugly things though. Check out the Worlds Ugliest Pickup:
Looks like the key to this thing is its lightness. Power is power no mater what
form you store it in. Less weight takes less power to accelerate. Makes one
wonder how it would handle in snow, ice, or windy conditions.
The typically short-sighted environmentalist will of course agree that
it is a "zero pollution" vehicle. But you can't beat the game. The
energy comes from somewhere. It does use an interesting method to
store energy. I'd be interested to know how the efficiency compares a
batteries, or how much pollution-per-mile it produces when charged off
of a coal burning power grid.
It appears to require very little power to re-charge. The article claims
that it can be re-charged in 3-4 minutes with the on-board compressor
plugged in to a 220V or 380V outlet. That doesn't sound too bad to go
