An amazing affordable auto that runs on air!
AIRPod is the culmination of MDI studies on pollution and urban mobility.
This concept will be the first to leave the production line in spring 2009. MDI will respond to an invitation to tender of the city of Paris, "Autolib'", and is already the subject of applications for various municipalities.
With small size, a tiny price, zero pollution, fun and futuristic design, AIRPod mark a turning point in the range of urban vehicles while renewing the idea of the automobile and transportation. You can drive with a joystick, it only costs one euro per 200 km and leaves no one indifferent in crept in traffic.
It is a real breath of fresh air in our cities and the prelude to travel without pollution. Its small size make it easy to park, keeping still a large internal volume. AIRPod help us to forget the price of petrol.
AIRPod is part of the MDI production licence of "less than 500kg vehicles", and is manufactured in the same factories as OneFlowAir, following the original production concept proposed by MDI.
The standard version is designed for the transport of persons. It has four seats (3 adults and one child) and has space for luggage. It is dedicated to multiple uses as in the private and public sectors. Airports, train stations and municipalities also need a cheap, non-polluting car with high mobility.
This wehicle is changing our urban life in the city center in freeing ourselves of the prohibitive cost of petrol and offering us mobility never gained until today.
This carriage version with a single place has a load volume greater than one meter cube that makes deliveries easy in town. Designed for runners, messaging, and the artisans and communities, Cargo AIRPod brings Zero Pollution in institutions. The Post, factory handling and delivery are markets of choice for AIRPod Cargo.
Two front seats and a chest of more than 500 liters, all for less than 1,80m long, it's the most extreme, a real challenge for car design. This model was created keeping in mind the most congested cities by traffic. It is a versatile which can also be used for deliveries, municipal services, roads and small logistics.

A Motorcycle that Can Change the Industry !
A San Francisco start-up has developed a car that could be a game changer
for the auto industry. Lit Motors' C-1 bridges the gap between a car and a
motorcycle, providing the safety of a car without the high ongoing costs of
ownership. Because the vehicle is electric, commuting costs are negligible:
"You can get to work and back for less than 50 cents a day,"
Honda 3R-C Concept
This revolutionary three wheeled battery electric vehicle concept shows
what a future minimal urban transport vehicle for one person might look
like. The battery electric drivetrain is mounted low in the three wheeled
chassis, therefore keeping the centre of gravity low and thus improving

Pulled over by the La Mesa Police while riding my velomobile
I was thinking about asking the next LMPD Officer that pulled me over to
send a departmental email out so I don't have to explain it again. I
thought it wasn't my job to get the info out. After my interaction here and
giving it a little more thought I think I'll just call and see if I can
talk to the Training Officer, no big deal. It seems like whenever I'm on a
bike I can't have a good interaction with the Police

Tata Pixel, new city car concept for Europe
ata Motors today presented at the 81st Geneva Motor Show the Tata Pixel, a
new city car concept for Europe. Based on the Tata Nano, the Tata Pixel --
at just over three metres in length -- is the most package efficient
four-seater in the world, comfortably accommodating four adults, unlike a
typical city car which is either a two-seater or can accommodate two adults
and two children only.The Tata Pixel's ability to manoeuvre and park in the
tightest of spaces is made possible by its Zero Turn toroidal
traction-drive Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT), which assists
rotation of the outer rear wheel forwards and the inner rear wheel
backwards, while the front wheels turn at acute angles. The result is a
turning circle radius of just 2.6 metres. The 'scissor' doors rotate
upwards from the front to allow passengers to effortlessly enter or exit
the Tata Pixel, even in the tightest of spaces.A 1.2 litre three-cylinder
turbocharged diesel engine, positioned
at the rear of the Tata Pixel, gives lively performance. The engine is a
low-friction design, featuring variable coolant and oil pump and rapid
warm-up technologies. With optimised aerodynamic drag, low
rolling-resistance tyres, stop-start technology, and intelligent battery
charging, the Tata Pixel returns European combined cycle (NEDC) fuel
economy of 3.4 l/100km and CO2 emissions of just 89g/km.A forward sweeping
roofline, with minimal front and rear overhangs, accentuates the youthful
styling. The Tata Pixel is also designed to provide a high level of
connectivity. Key functions are controlled by the driver's smart phone,
running 'My Tata Connect' -- the first integrated human-machine interface
(HMI) concept from Tata Motors.

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.
