Air Powered Cars
from the cleaning-up-the-environment dept
Forget those hybrid vehicles. Get ready for air powered cars that take in polluted air and emit cleaner air. The article discusses a company that has built some working prototypes that they say could be ideal for urban transporation vehicles like taxis and delivery vans. The cars don’t go very fast (about 55 mph tops) or very far (about 120 miles on full air tanks), but could help to reduce pollution just by lowering the numbers of polluting vehicles on the street. It also sounds as though it’s still fairly early in the development process, so I would guess the technology is only going to get better over time.
