The MiniC.A.T is a simple, light urban car, with a tubular chassis that is glued not welded to a fibreglass body.
It is incredibly cheap to operate. According to the designers, it costs less than one Euro per 100Km (about a tenth that of a gas powered car). Its mileage is about double that of the most advanced electric car (200 to 300 km or 10 hours of driving), a factor which makes a perfect choice in cities where 80% of motorists drive at less than 60Km. The car has a top speed of 68 mph.
Refilling the car will be at adapted gas stations that are equipped to administer compressed air.
Tree huggers will like the vehicle but how many actual buyers will there be?
