Air Car

When I saw the headline AirCar I imagined at first it meant walking, perhaps with a lean on the corners and some sort of idle motion while waiting for street lights. But no. There is actually such a car, or better, such an engine. Using compressed air, released to drive pistons, along with a fuel module as in the now familiar hybrid models, the Midi is said to have achieved a driving range of 200 km before needing a “fill up” of more air.

There remains the problem of compressing the air, of course. Using dirty coal to do it, won’t do.

    Dirty coal is still less polluting than millions of gas polluting individual cars. It’s a step in the right direction. It’s also better than electric cars because of all the battery waste when the batteries are spent. Also, as the coal burning power plants become cleaner, so will the ride.
