The engine of the vehicle is powered by using compressed air as fuel. The air is compressed in two cylinders at a pressure of 150bar. The air at the pressure of 150bar is made to flow into the motor at 6bar through a regulator. A ball valve connection is provided near the driver’s seat to regulate the flow of air which in turn controls the speed of the vehicle.
A chain connects the shaft of the motor to a five speed gear on the rear wheel. Here the rear wheel is the driving wheel which pushes the vehicle forward.
- Total weight of the vehicle is less when compared to conventional vehicles.
- Elimination of polluting oil as lubricant in the engine.
- Reduced maintenance cost as a result of low moving parts.
- Old vehicles can be retrofit at a reasonable cost.
- Drastically reduced vehicle cost realized by the radical reduction of total components needed for drive train components.
- Lower onboard fuel storage weight due to use of compressed air as an energy source.
