What is this?
It is an
auto engine that runs on air. That's right; air not
gas or diesel or
electric but just the air around us.
The Air Car, developed by ex-Formula One engineer Guy N. for Luxembourg-based MDI, uses compressed air to push its engine's pistons and make the car go. The Air Car, called the "Mini CAT" could cost around 365,757 rupees in India or $8,177 US.
The Mini CAT which is a simple, light urban car,
with a tubular chassis, a body of fiberglass that is
glued not welded and powered by compressed air. A
Microprocessor is used to control all electrical
functions of the car. One tiny radio transmitter
sends instructions to the lights, turn signals and
every other electrical device on the car. Which are
The temperature of the clean air expelled by the
exhaust pipe is between 0-15 degrees below zero,
which makes it suitable for use by the internal air
conditioning system with no need for gases or loss
of power. There are no keys, just an access
card which can be read by the car from your pocket.
According to the designers, it costs less than 50
rupees per 100 KM, that's about a tenth the cost of
a car running on gas. It's mileage is about double
that of the most advanced electric car, a factor
which makes it a perfect choice for city motorists.
The car has a top speed of 105 KM per hour or 60 mph
and would have a range of around 300 km or 185 miles
between refuels. Refilling the car will take place
at adapted gas stations with special air
compressors. A fill up will only take two to three
minutes and costs approximately 100 rupees ($1.78
CAD!) and the car will be
to go another 300 kilometers.
This car can also be filled at home with it's on
board compressor. It will take 3-4 hours to refill
the tank, but it can be done while you sleep.
Because there is no combustion engine, changing
the 1 liter of vegetable
oil is only necessary every 50,000 KM or 30,000
Due to its simplicity, there is very little
maintenance to be done on this car.
