New economical car: Hybrid Air, from Peugeot

The Daily Mail reports (perhaps a bit unskeptically) claims by Peugeot that their new petrol/compressed air hybrid engine will deliver 117 mpg by 2020.

Brian Wang of nextbigfuture.com gives a more conservative estimate of 81.1 mpg, plus a purchase price / CO2 emission comparison with conventional petrol and alternative hybrid systems. If low CO2 is seen as value (and government incentives - e.g. this - could make it a factor for the car user), then Peugeot's offering looks like value for money, turning green chic into simply practical.
