MDI, The Air Car and Tata Motors

“Air-Powered car coming to India.

This car runs on the ultimate emissions-free fuel: air.

In 2007, Mumbai, India-based Tata Motors signed a licensing deal with Motor Development International, a French design firm. The idea was to build a car that could run on compressed air. Now Tata says it has tested two cars with the engines. The next step is setting up the manufacturing plants to actually build them.”

– MDI’s Industrial Concept

  • 1/3 of the land surface is necessary.
  • 1/4 of a conventional assembly factory.
  • 1/5 of the total investment.
  • 30% more employees necessary.

In 1999, MDI imagined and created the “Dealer/Manufacturer/Partner” concept by commercializing turnkey factories to manufacture cars locally. Unlike the huge classic assembly plants (particularly pollutant), the MDI concept offers various micro production factories throughout the world. These plants will manufacture 80% of the vehicle and will sell them in the same location.

This concept represents a drastic decrease in costs and the logistic problems associated with the conventional process (stocks and freight of finished cars to the dealers etc…) and not withstanding it beneficial impact on the environment.

In the MDI production concept, the suppliers are chosen in a way to reduce costs, logistics and freights. All the purchases are managed at the MDI central purchasing unit, to beneficiate from the advantages of bulk buying.

Taking into account the amount of MDI plants necessary to reach the number of manufactured cars in a conventional plant, the MDI industrial concept allows for a reduction in the logistic costs and a decrease in the percentage of CO2 generated in the transport of finished cars and raw materials.
