They could cut the fossil fuels out of the equation if they used wind turbines to produce the electricity to run the air compressor.

It's called a very efficient battery that won't get damaged from improper charging or all the battery problems. Compressed air is great since it isn't expensive minus the tank. I wish they could make a hovercraft that has a air driven prop Lipos stink since they have weight to them,are expensive,can get damaged easy and will violently explode if damaged(but are great for secondary power storage not a primary storage). I really like this idea better than hydrogen(no platinum,pem membranes,hydrogen worries and hydrogen viability problems) since there are no fuel cells needed or any this or that just compressed air, you could even run a small generator for your this or that, When you brake, it would put power into a small Lipo bank. The possibilities are endless; you could have a battery bank of lipos that are for emergency usage you could "recharge" (via a small compressor) your air tank and keep that going with your braking generator.... Makes me kinda exited
Renewable power is worthless without a good battery. Once we get this new battery technology the leap to solar/wind as the primary source of energy for the grid should be easier.

I've often wondered why companies are taking things the size of the already fuel efficient Hondas and Toyotas etc and making THEM more fuel efficient when the ones that need the new technology are the larger vehicles. I realize that you have to start somewhere, but if you could pull off a hybrd semi or RV...now THAT would impact things a great deal. Imagine how much you could make with a fuel efficient RV.
I entered truckers' log info into a data base at a previous job and the bucks that they spend is incredible. When you stop to think about what that translates into as far as gallons...yipes!
I need the cargo capacity of my Explorer so I'm screwed anyway. I'm really uncomfortable in this Explorer when semis blast past me in rain and snow-you couldn't pay me to get into one of these death-mobiles.
Our Mission: To bring zero pollution motoring at any speed, for any distance, to the largest number of motorists possible and, in doing so, significantly improve the quality of the air we breathe and reduce our collective carbon footprint.
What they don't tell you is that they're reducing the carbon footprint by reducing the population of drivers by killing them off. It doesn't matter how careful you are-things happen beyond your control and this doesn't look like it'll keep you safe in a side impact.
i like it! it just needs a paint and body job
