Peugeot ‘s Plan For Compressed Air Car

With the increasing prices of fuels the automobile companies are forced to search for other fuel alternatives, keeping this in mind many companies have turned to hybrid cars which runs on Ethanol + Gasoline or some other bio-fuel. Recently in an Autoexpo in Britain a British company claimed to produce petrol from thin air and now a French company( Peugeot ) claims to run a car from compressed air.

French automaker automaker Peugeot Citroen’s latest automotive innovation — named “Hybrid Air” — operates on compressed air, gasoline or a combination of the two. At speeds above 43 mph (70 kilometers per hour), the car uses a standard three-cylinder gasoline engine with an automatic transmission.

According to Peugeot, the hybrid will get about 141 miles to a gallon, and will save the average driver 45% off fuel costs. In addition, it will be cheaper to purchase than hybrids on the road now, including the Toyota Prius.The car is expected to be launched in 2016.
