There is a magnificent opportunity for China to lead the world away from its dependence on oil and the pollution problems caused by fuel burning vehicles.
The answer is to utilise the current development of steam technology that is tried, tested and installed, in available production cars.
The Pritchard Steam engine is the answer - it is a proven design with far fewer parts than any internal combustion engine and provides better performance at lower cost and negligible pollution.
For anyone interested go to the web page
This is an opportunity that China is in a position to capitalise on and, one they really can't afford to miss.

I saw a steam car on the road a few months ago - fantastic vehicle but not exactly modern technology.

Now how about a modern 300 bhp steam car running on LPG capable of over 200mph?

If I might add a bit of trivia.....
The first character of the word that the Chinese chose to use for
car 汽车 (qi2che1) is steam. The second character is cart or wagon.
But I think that character can also be translated as "gas" - the word the USA use for petrol?
