$8K Compressed Air Cars Shipping In August (In India)
February 27, 2012
Want a inexpensive auto that runs on compressed air? Nicely you are in luck, India’s Tata Motors (makers of the world’s least expensive auto) has announced the MINI Cat will be shipping in August for around $ 8,200. Sadly, you could have to move to India to drive a single, simply because I doubt it’ll pass any rigorous car security requirements. *watches neighbor crawl via his passenger-side window because neither door opens* Holy shit.
Mini CAT’s top rated speed is about 60 miles per hour although its array is about 185 miles.
The Mini CAT’s physique is glued fiberglass, as opposed to welded metal, which makes it really lightweight…The Mini CAT makes use of just 1 liter of vegetable oil in its tubular chassis, which ought to be changed every single 30,000 miles or so.
Charging and running the Mini CAT fees about one tenth what a gasoline vehicle charges. The car’s compressed air tank can be filled at residence in 3 or four hours with its onboard compressor. India will have adapted air compressors at gas stations, which for about a hundred rupees or $ two.49 can fill your compressed air tank in two – 3 minutes
Is this even for actual? It would seem like we must have been on this like, a loooooong time ago. Unless — Unless — the compressed air tank explodes if somebody touches your bumper. Now I just did a total bunch of study on compressed air autos and their questionable effectiveness/sustainability so I could publish this report as intelligently as feasible, so I’ll leave you with this tidbit: I read they can coast on farts if you run out of air amongst service stations. “Where’d you study that?” On a web site. “Geekologie? So you happen to be quoting by yourself now?!” It’s not illegal — folks do it all the time!
