- TheAirCar.com - [Company name is MDI = Moteur Developpment International - company was formed in 1992 by its inventor "ex-Formula One engineer Guy Nègre"; their auto products are: MiniCat and CityCat cars ] SPECS: CityCat model will clock out at 68 mph with a driving range of 125 miles on a full supply of air. The Business Model: rather than setting up a single large factory to make and distribute the cars around the world, MDI has divided the world into 400 territories and is selling exclusive licenses to regional groups to manufacture and sell the cars locally. A recent agreement with Tata Motors of India --> "approximately 6000 Air Cars will be cruising the streets of India by 2008". Concept & Theory: The compressed air technology is basically just a way of storing electrical energy without the need for costly, heavy, and occasionally toxic batteries. So, in a sense, this is an electric car. It just doesn't have an electric motor. Video - "Air Car Ready for Mass Production".
