Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Initial reaction: Air is no fuel! So I had to go read the article. :)

Two things that stuck out:

  1. It is built in fibreglass to be very light. Good thing, but is really a seperate issue from the engine.

  2. It runs on compressed air, which might be a better form of storing energy then a battery (I really do not know) but just as batteries or fuelcells it moves the energy 'production' from the car to another place. In itself probably a good thing, but that other place needs to be included in the energy calculation.
