MDI's air engine technology tested on Tata Motors vehicles

In January 2007, Tata Motors and Motor Development International
(Luxembourg) signed a licence agreement that enables Tata Motors to produce
and sell compressed air cars using MDI technology in India. The agreement
covered two phases of activity encompassing the technology transfer and
proof of the technical concept in the first phase, and in the second phase
completing detailed development of the compressed air engine into specific
vehicle and stationary applications.

The first phase of this programme - proof of the technical concept in Tata
Motors vehicles - has now been successfully completed with the compressed
air engine concept having been demonstrated in two Tata Motors vehicles.

In the second phase of the development, the two companies are working
together to complete detailed development of the technology and required
technical processes to industrialise a market ready product application over
the coming years.
