It appears that Tata’s compressed air car could be a reality if we go by their press release as stated below:
The first phase of this programme – proof of the technical concept in Tata Motors vehicles – has now been successfully completed with the compressed air engine concept having been demonstrated in two Tata Motors vehicles. In the second phase of the development, the two companies are working together to complete detailed development of the technology and required technical processes to industrialise a market ready product application over the coming years.
It appears that Tata’s have taken a cue from Google driverless car and analysis of press release suggests that they could be in the process of setting up manufacturing plants to build them soon. They have done it with Tata Nano and we wish them all the luck for their futuristic venture.
