Revolutionary new pollution-free car able to run on air

Tata Motors Mini-CAT or City Cat

Wow! That's about all I can say about this story. Except, I always have an except, talk about taking a huge bite out of oil dependency.
BBC News is reporting that a French company has developed a pollution-free car which runs on compressed air. India's Tata Motors has the car under production and it may be on sale in Europe and India by the end of the year.

The air car, also known as the Mini-CAT or City Cat, can be refueled in minutes from an air compressor at specially equipped gas stations and can go 200 km on a 1.5 euro fill-up -- roughly 125 miles for $3. The top speed will be almost 70 mph and the cost of the vehicle as low as $7000.

If you really look close, or click for larger image, it appears they get around the left-hand-drive/right-hand-drive problem by placing the driver in the middle.
