No Gas, Just Two More AA’s Please

By on November 26, 2004

Taking this year’s award for pointless vehicles, Panasonic presents the AA-powered car.

Panasonic’s OxyRide car runs on two AA batteries.

Weighing 18.5kg, OxyRide can drive for 1.23km with a 50kg passenger, or travel 65m in 74 seconds on fresh cells, claims Panasonic.

It’s a neat trick, but I’m guessing that they’ll have trouble getting it to break the barrier imposed by the speed of smell.
