San Jose’s West Coast Green conference from last week had a point of attraction: the world’s first fuel-less car, made by Magnetic Air Car. They even say it will be produced beginning with 2010.
The Magnetic Air Car uses compressed air technology for propulsion, but unlike Tata Motors air engine, or DiPietro, theirs uses a different design: three on-board air compressors channel the air stream towards something that probably is a magnetic motor, something that everybody thinks is still Sci-Fi. But it’s not. The magnets, repelling each other, can be a source of movement, and, if properly propelled by an air jet, could have “devastating” effects in terms of power. Once again, this is only a probability, no exact specifications of their technology have been made yet.
Their Magnetic Air Car uses a silicon salt battery having 30% more mass power than a lead acid storage battery, and it can completely charge in one hour. The battery is also environmentally friendly: it’s 95% recyclable, and it can be used in almost extreme conditions: from -40 to +50 degrees Celsius. I say almost, because the temperatures inside a car during summer exceed 50 degrees.
A prototype of the car is being built at Club Auto Sport in San Jose and will be tested in the near future. It looks interesting enough to keep an eye on this company. Let’s hope it’s not a hoax.

I would love to see something like The Magnetic Air Car out on the road. Is this car still in development? I wonder how quickly it runs and it it could withstand freeway traffic.
It's 2010 and I stumbled across this article in google. Looks like the car didn't make it into production :( Such a shame, but I guess we still have Tesla mobiles to rely on!
Chattel Mortgage: "... was reading an article last week, where an inventor had in fact produced a car that ran entirely on water. He drives the car daily, but to date has not managed to move it forward. The article indicated that he had been silenced!"Classic conspiracy nonsense. No one has built a car that runs on water and nothing else.
This is fantastic news! To consider some companies continue produce guzzlers and others, like this are seeking alternatives I think I know where and what choices the consumer will make.

Of course! This is actually basic science. How it manages to maintain our vehicles in a manner that we have become accustomed will be the challenge. When we take into account that some of the major car manufacturers have invested interests in gasoline industries. We can then begin to understand why these alternative and preferable modes of transport have been stalled.
