I apologize that I needed to point out your inability to read your own
cite.

Correction.  It runs on GASOLINE and uses some stored compressed aire
for temporary power boosts WHILE STILL RUNNING ON GASOLINE.

  Near as I can tell  this is not a compressed air car,per se. It is a
hybrid that maximizes efficiency, possibly through regenerative braking.

   More interesting to me, which I stumbled upon while reading the above
are super capacitors:

Yes that appears what it is doing. It can run 100% on compressed air as
well, all using the same engine.


Some companies are stating they have cracked the energy density in that fro
the same size package as a battery it hold the same energy, but charges and
discharges at an instant rate.  If that is the case then see major
improvements to petro-electric hybrids, electric trains and elevators.

Air is free, but supercapacitors will outlast a car.

I'm not sure if they are close there yet. But the power density is very
high, and for regenerative braking, or for quick burst of acceleration
that is very valuable.
