Small price, tiny size, zero emissions
It’s not a concept vehicle, it’s for real and Tata Motors plans on releasing it. Three passenger, tops at about 43 mph (70 kph) and a range of 200 kilometers or more…powered by air!
See the descriptive video at the bottom. It’s quite interesting to see it in action.
I suppose you can say the range is really greater than stated, because you can fill up while you’re on the go with the on-board electric motor. Let’s see how this all pans out in India.
The price is remarkable at about $10,000. Usually green tech comes with a bigish price tag, but this seems to could be a “mass market sweet spot of a price point” and given that a fill up for your 200+ kms will cost about 50 cents.
The second phase of testing is on now. Let’s hope this one doesn’t mysteriously fade away.
The 3 passenger air powered car was developed by MDI. Great city commuter vehicle.
