Cars running on compressed air to be produced by Tata

Compressed air city carGizmag have an article on a car which Tata is going to produce which runs on compressed air.  This means the only impact on the environment is the energy used to actually compress the air.  The exhaust fumes are just cool, unpolluted air!

The company says that the car will cost about R30 to fill up at air pumps at upgraded petrol stations.  It will then be able to travel 200 to 300 km with a max speed of about 110 km/h.

If this actually works it will be great for cities.  Almost no pollution and cheap to run.

    This is totally awesome! I would so use one. I think it is a great step for pollution but as you said it is only really feasible for city driving at the moment but maybe top speeds will improve. Wonder how expensive the car will be? Also, wonder if you will need special filling stations cos that could limit the usability as well.
