Would You Drive an Air Car?

Zero Pollution Motors has an air-powered car they plan to make available to the US in 2010 for $17,500. It has a maximum speed of 96mph, will get 106mpg with a range of 848 miles on the 8 gallon tank. If it really has those stats, I may be trading in the Maxima. It’s not the prettiest thing to look at, but to be fill up with compressed air for less than the cost of a gallon of gas, then drive twice as many miles, I can deal with ugly.

Standard Features will include:

Computer based screen display of vehicle control parameters
Full CFC-free A/C
Fully reclining driver’s seat
Power windows, door locks and mirrors
Deluxe AM/FM stereo with cassette and cd player, optional GPS
Rear window defogger
Concealed spare tire
All season 13-inch radial tires
A cold weather package will be available

  1. now that would make it rather difficult for websites such as FUELLY and FUELFROG wouldn’t it?

  2. Heh. The interest in those sites would definitely decline if you were driving this car, but that’s a price I’m willing to pay :)

  3. I totally agree and this looks like it is pretty good. One thing I did not see is how you would “fill it up.”

  4. Refueling: The Air Vehicle can be refilled with Air at home or in your parking garage by plugging it into a normal power outlet. The compressed Air tank is also automatically refilling when driving at higher speeds.
