For the wish list...

"The $12,700 CityCAT, one of a handful of planned Air Car models, can hit 68 mph and has a range of 125 miles. It will take only a few minutes for the CityCAT to refuel at gas stations equipped with custom air compressor units; MDI says it should cost around $2 to fill the car’s carbon-fiber tanks with 340 liters of air at 4350 psi. Drivers also will be able to plug into the electrical grid and use the car’s built-in compressor to refill the tanks in about 4 hours." -- Popular Mechanics.
Found at Big Gav's Peak Energy. Popular Mechanics! As in, how much more mainstream can you get?

These vehicles will not arrive in the U.S. any time soon, if ever. You would think Ford, et al., would be interested in licensing the technology and saving their fannies from Chapter 11 (and ours from committing oil genocide in Iraq). Sigh...
