Air powered cars

The next generation of environment friendly cars are about to hit Indian roads. TATA (Largest Indian car manufacturer) will be the brand producing these air powered cars. Indians are expecting to ride these zero emission vehicles as Mumbai taxi cabs. It is expected that some 6000 air powered cars will hit Mumbai roads on August 2008.
Inventor Guy Negre X-Formula one engineer, working for MDI a Luxembourg based company used compressed air, to push the pistons in the engine, instead of gas-and-oxygen explosions of internal-combustion models. These air powered cars should be astonishingly practical and sustainable. The City Cat is one of the few test models @ $13,000 strokes 60-70 mph and has the range of 125miles. Gas stations in Mumbai are expected to be equipped with air compressor units so refill for these cabs should not be an issue. More over the refill of its carbon fiber cylinder with 340 liters of air at 4350 PSI should not cost more then a twitter $2 for these air powered cars. Drivers also will be able to plug into the electrical grid and use the air powered car’s built-in compressor to refill the tanks in about 4 hours.
Critics of air powered cars say that these zero carbon emission vehicles are not a solution, as the electricity required to compress air for these cars will have a carbon impact during its production. But this really is not objection to pay heat upon, as India already falls #4 in wind energy production, thus with renewable energy getting common on daily bases this objection is just a propaganda of oil capitalists. Another objection on these air powered cars is that a huge amount of air will be taken from the atmosphere to fill up their tanks, the critics of air powered cars again have a no real objection as these cars will emit breathable clean air, thus they should be retiring air back to the atmosphere. Another positive point about these air powered cars is that there cylinders are made to split if there is an accident or leakage instead of bursting or shattering. But instead of getting too excited, we should show serious support so that the Oil God's don’t come down and buy (Or Take) the idea of air powered cars and bury it as it was done in past.
Some critics state that zero emissions is metaphoric, a term used for referring to Low toxic emissions. But the question is how low compared to the gas guzzling carbon coughing monsters on the road.
Critics of air powered cars are forgetting that fossil fuel is running out and getting expensive day by day. If the Mumbai air powered taxi cabs are successes full then we can have air powered buses and trams as they were in use in the past.
