In previous blog entries, I mentioned the CityCat air-powered cars and posed the question, why can't U.S. car-makers do something like this? Are they married to big Oil and lost their innovative spirit?
Well, a French company, MDI has partnered with an Indian company and together, they've developed the necessary technology to power vehicles with compressed air. They expect to begin putting air-powered cars on the streets in India and Europe late this year. With any luck, we'll be able to purchase one of these cars in the U.S. some time in 2010. It would be perfect for us as we toodle around our small town for one thing or another, or down to the market to stock up on a few groceries.
