Tata Motors of India, has come up with some startling innovative automobiles. This one will make you green with envy as petrol pushes toward $5 a gallon. In India, you can buy this car for around $8,000 dollars. It runs on compressed air. That’s right. Compressed air, zero emissions.
It costs about $2 for a fill-up which will run about 10 hours, or approximately 200 miles. It has a glued, fiberglass body instead of a welded, metal body, which is one of the reasons it won’t get exported to the U S. The 2nd biggest hurdle would be the powerful oil lobby we have here.
Its a great city car. If you don’t live close enough to a station that can fill you up in 3 minutes, the six seater carries a compressor that can fill you up at home in 3 to 4 hours. Now, that’s an auto to make the world a better place. In India, the Tata will be available in August of this year.
