    Air is a terrible way to store energy.

    The electricity to create compressed air is far greater than you would get from just putting it in a car's high capacity batteries.

    Hey, $1 per 100 miles is very competitive with the cost of running an EV. Now if they could make a larger version with a higher top speed, it might become a good option.

    Airpod is actually a clever acronym for "ain't going to happen."
