Soon Air-powered cars to launch in India


Tata Motors has said that it has tested two cars that can run on compressed air, and that the next step is setting up manufacturing plants to actually build them.

A compressed air car engine works in a similar way to internal combustion engine - fuel forces piston to turn a crankshaft and power the car. The difference is that in a compressed air engine, the pistons are moved by air and not by gasoline.

Researchers in Sweden have experimented with single cylinder engines of this type.
