A lot of folks have been interested in Tata Motor's Air Car, the "OneCAT" also known as the "MiniCAT." Unfortunately, as of this writing, the car is unlikely to be produced any time soon due to challenges in getting it to run economically enough for the average buyer. Nonetheless, interest remains strong. I found this neat video on you tube by CATvolution which gives a handy explanation of how a compressed air vehicle would work - straight from its inventor, Cyril Negre http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xakXvMl-r4w
