The news has broken that PSA Peugeot Citroën is getting ready to take further steps towards improving on the ecological footprint of the automotive industry by rolling out vehicles capable of running on air.

Their Air Hybrid powertrain has only recently been revealed, and the company hopes that this green-oriented technology will be made available to the general public as early as the year 2016.

Sources say that Air Hybrid vehicles will display three different operating modes: petrol only, air only and a mix of petrol and air.

“We are not talking about weird and wacky machines. These are going to be in everyday cars,” a spokesperson for PSA Peugeot Citroën told members of the press.

Needless to say, such vehicles will burn significantly less amounts of so-called dirty fuels than the cars now chasing up and down national and international highways do, which means that they will also produce less harmful emissions.
