Zero Pollution Motors (ZPM) promises an "Air Car" by late 2009

A vehicle that runs on Compressed Air Technology (C.a.t.) developed by Motor Development International (MDI), is being brought to the United States by Zero Pollution Motors (ZPM). With a delivery date around the end of 2009, the Air Car will go 90 mph, carry six people, recharge from an outlet or compressed air tank, and cost around $17,000. This You Tube video gives an introduction to the Air Car.

Although the Air Car has been featured in the media many times, I somehow missed it until today.

Learn more about the Air Car at the Zero Pollution Motors website.
