New air-powered car looks WEIRD

The car will be powered by MDI's compressed-air system, which uses electricity to compress huge amounts of air in small tanks. The air is then slowly released from the tanks, driving pistons that move the car. This system is hopefully going into American cars by 2010, and was licensed by Tata Motors for use in India and Europe.The AirPod seats three (one facing backward) and the "playful and futuristic" design. The top speed of the thing is just over 40 miles per hour and it has a range of only 130 miles before a refill is needed, so obviously it will be just for city use.Refilling an air car can be extremely quickor quite slowEven if the power used to compress the air is pure-coal-fired power, these things are way cleaner than gasoline, and even cleaner than electric vehicles.
