Interesting. You don't have to worry about the replacing the air after 3-5 years as you do with battery designs! IT would be nice to know what energy equivalents and what efficiencies they are claiming.

I didn't see anything about the efficiency of converting various forms of energy into compressed air and back. I like the MPG, but I would like to know about other methods of charging the air. For example, how about a comparison with batteries on a miles per watt (at the outlet) basis for electric charging.

Clearly this hybrid isn't powered by air. Please leave the misleading headlines to Yahoo.

How do the components, seals etc, endure high pressure over the years. It's possible the maintenance issues make it no better over time than the battery replacement issues of electric hybrids.

Using air is even more interesting and efficient than using other gas or simple electricity. Someday we all will have green vehicles for our kids and grand kids to have safe and healthy future.. I hate smog and I want clear air so bad!! Non EU travel insurance

Air Powered car will be the car of the future. I have gone through the above article and I get to know that the Air Powered car is the combined power vehicle. In this Hybrid System, this is the combination of Air Power and Gasoline Power to make it the Combined Power. It will be very much efficient due to the technology used in it. http://www.yelp.com/biz/orange-motors-orange
