The clean car developped in France

This is a news I found on Mickael Guillois' blog. Here is the translation of the podcast presented on Mickael's blog

In France a clean car using compressed air has been developed and should be launched soon. The car has been conceived by French engineer Guy Negre, and the car produces 0 pollution in town, as it used compressed air as energy! The car has an autonomy of 80 kilometers (about 50 miles), and you can fill up the battery as fast as 3 minutes by using a compressor that would cost about $2 of electricity.

The car can go up to 150 km/h (93.5 m/h), which is, as you might have noticed, way faster than the speed limit.
The car is cheap as it would cost 3600 euros. Moreover, by purchasing this car, the user would be eligible by French tax law for a 5000 euros tax credit, which would turn the car even more profitable.

The car should be produced in less than a year. Here you will find below some pictures of the car and also some technical facts about the car.
