AIRPOD POLLUTION-FREE CAR - powered by compressed air

It takes 2 minutes to fill up the tanks, and a single occupant should be able to go somewhere around 90 to 125 miles on a full set of tanks. With air costing just 1 (appx. $1.40 USD) for a fill-up, fuel costs are pretty much a non-issue. The Airpod is controlled by a joystick and weighs less than 500kg. It's due on the market in 2015. It could potentially cost $10,000.

But those in power will not want this to happen in the near future...too much money to be made from oil, which is going to run out in another 50 years or so.
