A non-polluting, inexpensive car That will upset Big Oil companies.BBC News is reporting that a French company has developed a pollution-free car which runs on compressed air. India's Tata Motors has the car under production and it may be on sale in Europe and India by the end of the year.
I 'll be first in line to get one of these cars If the US decides to import them. Enough is enough .

Nah , i don't think so , they can't stop companies for making them , the market will regulate itself , and if the car is a success , the air compressor will be cheaper than todays price , my guess you will find them at your convenient store for 50$ ( 3 /4 years from now)
Have any of you economic geniuses done the math on how much compressed air you need to run the bloody car? Are you under the impression that compressing air happens without energy to run the compressor?
I admit, I haven't even clicked the link on this one, but jeez. First we complain they charge for air. But if you have to compress your own air, you have to pay for a machine you use once in a blue moon (and not some cheesy internet model, something built to last and to most likely put out much more compression). So, we all visit the one guy who buys one, pay a quarter, blah blah blah.
Car runs on compressed air. Okay. How much compressed air? I assume the compressor is electric. What are you burning or what atoms are fissioning to get you the power? Or -- don't tell me -- it's a diesel machine that compresses the air?
Who knows. The overall point is, whether we talk batteries, fuel cells, gasoline, compressed air, whatever, we are arguing about an outdated concept.
We are consumed by modes of portability of energy. We think they're different things -- different "fuels," different technologies. Well, they are different technologies in the small sense. In the large sense, they are methods of creating portable energy supplies. It just so happens that fossil fuels take advantage of natural processes that have already happened. Other sources of portable energy necessitate that energy be expended to "create" the portable energy. It's all a matter of the efficiency of the transfer.
The good news is, we'll get past oil as portable energy. Hey, get yourself an electric car, or one of these air cars, and you're there. Problem solved in the microcosm. Eventually gas scarcity will force this conversion in the macrocosm. Naturally the poor will get hurt worse in the conversion, but that's another lecture.
In terms of the energy issue, it always returns to nature (but then again, science is nothing but the discovery of how nature runs, and technology is nothing but manipulation of natural law.) We're right next door to a gigantic self-sustaining thermonuclear reactor with a fuel supply good for billions of years. It's a little dumb to view ourselves as approaching an energy crunch. What we're approaching is an economic crunch caused by failure of vision and greed on the part of vested interests wedded to fossil fuels.

That about sums it up. Well said. Might explain why Oil companies continue to buy-out start-up solar tech companies.
Don't worry, the ball has started rolling, the Human Brain will soon come up with an alternative to Middle East Oil and it will be a great day the "New Thing" will destroy those dirty f-cking Women Abusing Stone Age bastards that still behead & stone human beings to death, their women won't have to ride in the back seat of the car anymore because they won't have a car they'll have to walk behind their husbands donkey.
Nem in all wisdom is right whatever this "New Thing" is that replaces Oil won't be cheap.
The "UFO Aliens" that Sissy Carter & Kunutchi Wootchi saw flying around in their saucers solved this problem millions of years ago.
Take That To The Bank.
