AirPod: The mini car that runs on air (video)

The AirPod may look like a futuristic clown car, but it's actually the cleanest vehicle on the road. Just approved for production, this super green vehicle by French engineers (and father-son team) Guy and Cyril Negre has 3 wheels, one door, no steering wheel and runs entirely on compressed air.

The two current models can seat one or up to three passengers, can reach speeds up to 60 miles an hour and runs 200 miles on one tank of air. Its emissions are comparable to an electric vehicle because the compressed air it runs on is created using electricity. The AirPod's price is very nice as well, running about $10k in US dollars (though I'm not sure if they're street legal yet in the US).

Check out the videos below on this eco-friendly vehicle.
