The Air Car is hitting the production line! Last time we mentioned it on ThingsAreGood, we were aware that Indian car maker Tata had signed on to make the vehicle.
EcoGeek is reporting that the Air Car is about to roll out in India. The company behind the car have also signed a deal to bring the car to 12 more countries including Germany and South Africa. Something I missed (or forgot about) this car is that it was developed by an ex-Formula One engineer named Guy Nègre.
Refueling is simple and will only take a few minutes. That is, if you live nearby a gas station with custom air compressor units. The cost of a fill up is approximately $2.00. If a driver doesn’t have access to a compressor station, they will be able to plug into the electrical grid and use the car’s built-in compressor to refill the tank in about 4 hours
