If you think compressed air is low matinece then you have never rebuilt an air compressor, and last I checked no one had figured out a good way to make compressed air cars work in cool climets, they just freeze up!
the only advantage that I have seen is that the air storage tank requires just common meterials like carbon fiber and kevlar to be built, unlike batteries that can be made out of lead and a water based acid and are 99% recycled at the end of their life.
