What to do ?
The other day I was travelling from Delhi to jaipur via the Rajastan state transport corporation and hell it was loads of smoke smogging and traffic jams cancellations of volvo busses and what to say ? I cant solve all of them but on the news front found some real heartening solution (courtesy the TATAs and a French company) for all that pollution, but yeah don ask what happens to the roads.
There are no keys – just an access card which can be read by the car from your pocket.
Most importantly, it is incredibly cost-efficient to run – according to the designers, it costs less than one Euro per 100Km (about a tenth that of a petrol car). Its mileage is about double that of the most advanced electric car (200 to 300 km or 10 hours of driving), a factor which makes a perfect choice in cities where the 80% of motorists drive at less than 60Km. The car has a top speed of 68 mph. (business week)
Sinner and Saint: Nano could be transformed into dual fuel air car
Tata is linked to European launch of the air propelled car
Tata originally signed the deal to use technology developed by French inventor Moteur Development International (MDI), in February 2007, with the hope of launching the new ‘air-car’ in India in 2008.
However, according to MDI, the car will be first launched in France by the end of 2008 or early 2009, produced by the company’s factory in Nice.
Although Tata and MDI decline to reveal details, unofficial sources say Tata may have come to MDI’s rescue by investing $30 million in MDI’s project.
The air car, made from carbon fibre and aluminium, will use compressed air to push the engine’s pistons, propelling the vehicle. According to MDI, the car achieves a top speed of 68mph with a driving range of 125 miles. (Climate change corp)
