Just add power storage and body and you have a car! Wild stuff.

Now that most auto manufacturers are doing very badly, we may see this technology come on quickly.

It is common for markets that are going through bad times to look for new technology to give them a competitive advantage. I hope at least one of the big players looks at this Michelin Active Wheel System and sees its merit.
