What is it?
Described by Honda as a 'coastal cruiser for the aggressive lifestyle', the Air is an obscure, low-slung, open-top buggy concept, which uses vegetable-based polymer panels for bodywork. The thought of potato skins for side impact protection might deter some, but Honda promises us that it's completely safe.
What technology does it use?
Compressed air and a pneumatic regulator system power the vehicle, while turbo vacuums and external air flow help to regenerate the fuel tank and extend the unknown range.
What current car would it replace?
If it's swift enough, then the Air could potentially replace the Honda CRZ. It certainly has the dynamic looks.
