$10,000 Car - AirPod - That Runs On Air
An amazing affordable auto that runs on air!
AIRPod is the culmination of MDI studies on pollution and urban mobility.
This concept will be the first to leave the production line in spring 2009.
MDI will respond to an invitation to tender of the city of Paris,
"Autolib'", and is already the subject of applications for various
With small size, a tiny price, zero pollution, fun and futuristic design,
AIRPod mark a turning point in the range of urban vehicles while renewing
the idea of the automobile and transportation. You can drive with a
joystick, it only costs one euro per 200 km and leaves no one indifferent
in crept in traffic.
It is a real breath of fresh air in our cities and the prelude to travel
without pollution. Its small size make it easy to park, keeping still a
large internal volume. AIRPod help us to forget the price of petrol.
AIRPod is part of the MDI production licence of "less than 500kg vehicles",
and is manufactured in the same factories as OneFlowAir, following the
original production concept proposed by MDI.
The standard version is designed for the transport of persons. It has four
seats (3 adults and one child) and has space for luggage. It is dedicated
to multiple uses as in the private and public sectors. Airports, train
stations and municipalities also need a cheap, non-polluting car with high
This wehicle is changing our urban life in the city center in freeing
ourselves of the prohibitive cost of petrol and offering us mobility never
gained until today.
This carriage version with a single place has a load volume greater than
one meter cube that makes deliveries easy in town. Designed for runners,
messaging, and the artisans and communities, Cargo AIRPod brings Zero
Pollution in institutions. The Post, factory handling and delivery are
markets of choice for AIRPod Cargo.
Two front seats and a chest of more than 500 liters, all for less than
1,80m long, it's the most extreme, a real challenge for car design. This
model was created keeping in mind the most congested cities by traffic. It
is a versatile which can also be used for deliveries, municipal services,
roads and small logistics.

Hp Velotechnik Scorpion Trike mit Elektroantrieb Umbausatz Tretkurbelantrieb
Update 7.8.12: Ich hab wieder ein neuess Video gemacht:
Den Motorbausatz gibts per Email bei E-Liberty (email@example.com) zu
kaufen. Er lässt sich auch in fast jedes andere Fahrrad einbauen. Auf
http://www.pedelecforum.de/forum gibt Einbauanleitungen, Erfahrungsberichte
Das Fahrzeug ist führerschein- und versicherungsfrei. Es ist ein
Lithium-Akku mit 20Ah eingebaut. Einmal aufladen dauert ca. 4 std.
Meine höchste Reichweite ohne mittreten war 110 km.
Ich habs aber auch schon mal geschafft, auf Waldwegen mit vielen
Steigungen, den Akku nach 60 km leer zu machen.
Wenn man as Hinterrad aufbockt und die Drossel raus macht treibt der Motor
bis 70 km/h an. Auf gerader Strecke schafft er 35 - 45 km/h. Aktuell hab
ichs auf 25 km/h gedrosselt, damit ichs ohne Nummernschild fahren darf.
Motor hat ca. 250.- Euro gekostet. Das Steuergerät 70.- Euro. Hier ist
noch ein 2tes Video von dem Trike in dem man den Motor besser sieht:
10.03.12 E-Liberty gibts nicht mehr aber hier ist ein gutes Beispiel, wie
man das machen kann:
Den Kurbelfreilauf kann man auch fertig kaufen. Mann braucht keine
Drehmaschine. An Tandems wird auch sowas verwendet.

Mattel's Stallion Trike
You can find all the information you need on this trike on the web at the
It has a Ford 4 cylinder 150hp engine, and it handles like a Super Mario
Cart! If you are a biker and you want to meet to look at it I will consider
that. It has every option offered by the manufacture, which include:
AC & Heat, Power adjustable peddles, Trunk Carpet, Trail Hitch, Cruse
Control, Front Seat Backrest, Fog lamps, HID headlights.
I have added the following items: Custom LED underbody lights, LED side
lights, Driver pouch, Wig/Wag headlight modulator, Remote Battery Terminal
(without this you will need to take the rear tire off to charge or jump the
battery), Additional antenna, J&N intercom and CB, Trunk Pouch, larger rear
tires, wind deflectors, and power plug.
I have had all the major updates done to this trike, and it is in perfect
mechanical condition and still under the factory warranty. Currently the
2011 models are not being offered due to Ford changing the motor. I am not
sure if TBMS will even offer another model due to having to re-engineer the
bike to fit the changed motors offered by Ford.
What sets my Stallion apart from the newer models is that this one is hand
laid fiberglass with a custom gold and silver fleck candy apple paint with
clear coats. This paint is truly amazing when you compare it to the new
flatter paint on the new plastic bikes.
Only about 600-800 of these trikes have been made and they are truly
amazing. Check out the technical data here:
Briefly here it is: 35-45mpg sipping regular gas. 143 hp weighing only
1,750lbs. 9.5 gallon fuel cell. With a top speed of 119 mph!
You can see my bike on this video:
This is a turnkey built from the ground up as a trike, not a conversion
kit. It is solid as a rock at all speeds! It is fully loaded, not stripped
down like the new ones.

TW4XP - Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE
This innovative side- by-side two seat city car eschews a steering wheel
for outstanding visibility and ease of entry/exit instead by using two
control sticks and buttons to control the speed and direction of the car.
A lightweight aluminum chassis and all-electric drive using high torque
motor operating a wheel speed (no transmission or gear reduction needed)
with integral differential weighed in at just 1545 pounds. This car uses
an 800V lithium-ion manganese battery pack and an inverter adapted from a
wind turbine power generator. This unusually high vehicle voltage level
reduces electrical losses and increases overall vehicle efficiency while
using standard electric components. Employing a technique just now being
considered by OEMs, this team charges their batteries through their motor
