Air Car

By thejudge

What happened to the big three in Detroit that scared them to death and start laying off and asking for bailouts.
Well in India there has been a lot of research on a car that runs off of compressed air and guess what "IT WORKS" they have already started to mass market it and you can buy the economy 4 passenger model around $9,000.00 in India and it gets around "60 MPG" yes there is a small gas engine that compresses the air when you need it on long runs with no hills or stops. Or you can buy the luxury 8 passenger for around $18,000.00 and loaded still get around "50 MPG"
They are afraid this will kill the expensive electric hybrid or hydrocarbon cars and this is where all of their research has been going and India owns all the pattens on the "AIR TECHNOLOGY" so the big three are going to be left in the dust with all this billions of dollars of research. down the drain. I'm sure there will be enough tariffs added to the price to bail the big three so the cars will probably cost us double what you can pay for them overseas.
But the big thing is we always have led the world in technology well now not fixing the education system in this country is starting to catch up. We send children to schools in inner cities that give them no chance in life. We are so caught up in politics in the universities that we have stopped educating.
This should be a big wake up call to this country but instead the news is playing this down and not reporting what is really happening.

Its set to launch in the US in 2010 here's the web address

I hadn't heard about this. I was on the phone for hours the other day with Indian techs fixing my computer. We should be doing that stuff right here in USA, not outsourcing. But it all comes down the money, it's cheaper for the big guys to hire overseas techs. Whatever happened to the American spirit of let's keep it home. It fell by the wayside when big checks rolled in.

Great... Another foreign country importing a car into our market because our auto makers are to short sighted and to deeply in bed with the big oil companies to think outside the internal combustion box. Don't get me wrong - I will never give up my three T/A's, but it would be great to have a better daily driver.

I find it more than refreshing,but actually truly enlightening to find another person whom has come to the realization of what is really happening to this country in relation of the rest of the world. When someone says "WAKE UP AMERICA!!!", those are not just words, but a call for each citizen of the this country to put aside their complacency, apathy, greed, lack of moral, ethical and spiritual fiber and JUST PLAIN laziess, and start to put forth effort, whether it be in words or deeds and bring this country back to it's feet!!!!!!!!! I believe a good start would be for everyone to let their Congressional Representatives how they feel and demand the end of corruption and the return to progress. After all, we did vote them into the office - now is the time to tell them how we wish them to represent us. Is that not what this country is all about and how we became the great nation we became (but are now losing)?? "WAKE UP AMERICA" goes far beyond "just words"! If we don't, as you have so elequently written, we are about to be passed like a broken down car in the dust by the rest of the world. I truly thank you for your comments and I like the way you think.

Interesting, but other than as a strictly Commuter vehicle, not good for anything else. Not everyone can use JUST a Commuter Car, most need something that can do more, and those things are too small for anything but going, and coming from work.
