The Air Car

New compressed-air powered car in production | News | It's an electric car, it just doesn't have an electric motor. It uses electricity to compress air. (recharge in 4 hours via the built-in compressor.)
The cunningly named Air Car has been developed by ex-Formula One engineer Guy Nègre and, before you ask, no, it has nothing at all to do with Apple or portable computing!
Range is 125 miles, and top speed is 68 mph. Respectable commuter car, unless you can get a quick recharge somewhere. (That 125 miles will cost you about 2 bucks.)

OK, so it isn't much to look at.
