Tata Motors unveils surprisingly inexpensive compressed-air powered Mini CAT vehiclesby Gavril Mankoo
Indian automaker Tata Motors, the ones who successfully sculpted, manufactured and continue to sell the world’s most inexpensive car, have now unveiled a new range of automobiles that run on compressed air. Priced reasonably low at about $8,200, these vehicles called the Mini CAT will show up on store shelves in India. No news if they’d ever travel across the seven seas to make it around the world, given the fact that these might simply not match up to global safety regulations. The vehicles do seem promising however in a particularly gas-parched environment, and take just $2.49 for a full tank of compressed air. All in all, the Mini CAT could pretty much pave the way for eco-friendly cars in the future that leave the environment-fixated folk smiling.
