Israeli tech start-up Phinergy has produced a car that runs on metal, air and water. The technology significantly increases the driving range of current electric vehicles and should be in high demand when it hits the marketplace. Phinergy is a leading developer of breakthrough, zero emission, high energy density systems based on metal air energy technologies, mainly Aluminum-Air and Zinc-Air. Unlike conventional batteries that carry oxygen, these batteries freely breathe oxygen from the ambient air to release the energy contained in metals. In the video below, you can see the car in action, driving over 300 km. in one drive. Just refill the water and you’re good for another few hundred km. Who wouldn’t love to drive such a car? It’s safer, cheaper and saves on the price on gas?
