Looking to the Future: Air-Powered Cars

At Southtowne Motors, we’re always considering the future and what new inventions can change the way we drive. Recently, an exciting release about an air-powered car caught our attention, so we’d like to pass on information about this new style of vehicle to you. There are also talks about air fuel synthesis, which is a new and interesting way to create fuel out of, literally, thin air. Although this could take years, it’s always interesting to see what could become common in our lifetimes.

Hybrids have become popular over the recent years, but Peugeot-Citroen, a primarily UK/European manufacturer has suggested that it will be working on a hybrid car that runs on gasoline and air. According to translators, the car would be able to run up to 43 miles per hour and would use hydraulics to keep itself powered up.

It’s no secret that companies have been looking for the newest ways to fuel vehicles, from water-powered styles to those that run on corn oils. Fuel alternatives may seem strange now, but they are likely to be more common in the near future. According to Peugeot-Citroen, they’d like to have this car up and running for sale by 2016.

Peugeot isn’t the only company looking into alternatives, though, and another British company is working on Air Fuel Synthesis. With this process, the fuel we need to drive would literally be made out of air. It is made with a combination technique of electricity and air, and it’s already been used to power a Lotus.

It could take up to 15 years before air fuel takes hold, but it may be the way of the future. As we look for new ways to power vehicles, reduce greenhouse gasses, and take better care of our finite resources, we may be seeing more examples of alternative fuel sources cropping up.

Luckily, with science catch up to the needs of our society, you’re likely to avoid seeing this any time in the future.
