Hybrid Car Will Use Compressed Air Instead of Electricity

By January 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Longing for a vehicle that leaves you feeling like you're riding on air? A brand new twist on hybrid technology could finally make that wish come true. French automaker PSA Peugeot Citroen claims it will be putting an air-powered vehicle on the road in about three years or so. That's right, I said air-powered. You can't get much more environmentally friendly than that.

Instead of partnering electricity with gasoline, this new hybrid will utilize compressed air.

Owners will still need to provide a bit of fuel, but the savings at the pump could be awe-inspiring. The car manufacturer's researchers say the air-powered marvel will knock 45 percent off fuel bills for the average owner. Used strictly as a city car, as it's likely to be marketed, the vehicle will run on air for four-fifths of its running time, reducing fuel costs by an incredible 80 percent. The company expects the car to get 117 miles to the gallon by the year 2016.
