This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

$10,000 Car - AirPod - That Runs On Air
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
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
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.

Electric Vehicle Hits and Misses - Autoline This Week 1647
They arrived with such fanfare a couple years back, that you'd have thought
we'd all be driving electrics by now but that's not the case. In fact, even
today some manufacturers are reticent to even offer an electric option. But

startups from designing and building all-electric cars. On Autoline This
Week John McElroy and his panel look at the world of electric cars, if
there's a want, a need or a business case to be made for their existence.
Joining John in studio is Csaba Csere, the former Editor-in-Chief of Car &
Driver magazine and Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics. Get more video everyday at
