The Air Car, made by French company MDI, could be launched by Tata Motors in India by 2010-11.

Replying to an email query, the French company said, “We will release in France the first cars for the Air France company before June 2009. The cars will be available for the public at the end of 2009.”

Mumbai-based Tata Motors had signed a licensing agreement with MDI for manufacturing the car in India. The agreement between the two envisages development and refinement of the technology.

The Air Car doesn’t require traditional fuel options like petrol, diesel, or gas and is driven primarily by compressed air. However, the company has also developed an alternative means to power the car using a combination of air and petrol, diesel or ethanol, just like a hybrid.
