Gas 2.0 never ceases to amaze me with the crazy nonsense they dig up. Inflatable Cars is today’s latest gimmick.
The California Based Startup is called XP Vehicles, the technology is similar to those developed by NASA for the Mars Rover but they are for the Asian Consumer Market.
Not only does XP vehicles state that the Whisper™ will have a range of 2,500 miles using their “hot-swap XPack Multi-Core™ battery/fuel cell powerplant,” they are aiming for a price point of under $5,000. The cars will be sold direct online, initially only offered in Asian markets, and you will be able to configure them with a variety of different colors, decals, stereo systems, iPod mounts, and alarms – none of which will cover up for the fact that you’re driving a balloon.
Seriously will anyone buy an inflatable car? In a sidenote, the picture above is not from the startup company.
