The bike you see here is powered by compressed air, generates no harmful emissions, and – in all likelihood – will never get past the design phase … but what a design! Compressed air cars may be boring, but this things is HOT!Read more
The search for an alternative fuel source other than oil should leave no idea untested. Still, there are some ideas with more potential than others, and some alt-fuel concepts are just plain strange. Compressed air vehicles have been around for around 150 years, but the technology has never caught on with automakers. There’s a reason for that, and it’s called torque, or the lack thereof.Read more
In the race to develop an alternative to petroleum, no stone is going unturned. Some researchers and automakers are even looking into cars powered by compressed air. But a new development could make cars powered by liquid nitrogen feasible, powerful, and cheap to build and fuel. Sounds cool…heh.Read more
The auto industry isn’t in an easy spot these days. First world nations are reaching a critical mass of automobiles, and stringent regulations add weight and cost to cars just as consumers are demanding cheap and fuel efficient vehicles.
But Nissan seems up to the challenge, as their next big move is building a car to sell in developing nations for between $3,000 and $5,000.Read more
It’s happening. Tata is building a car that runs on the very air we breathe. Compressed air has been makingRead more
