Zero Pollution Motors is a new company, the AIRPod, their automobile, has been in the works since 2000. Pat Boone and Ethan Tucker got the rights to manufacture the AirPod in Hawaii before appearing on Shark Tank.
Zero Pollution Motors Shark Tank Update
The Air Car was developed by MDI, a Luxembourg-based company, as a compression-based alternative to the internal combustion engine. Zero Pollution Motors (ZPM) is the U.S. licensee for MDI.
They were granted the right to construct one of the first of several modular facilities in the United States to manufacture the ‘AIRPod’ air-powered vehicles.
Pat Boone and Ethan Tucker launched Zero Pollution Motors (Air Car) in 2000.
They had two decades of experience in the business and claim to be the first to develop an air-compressed automobile in the United States.
These AIRPods, according to the entrepreneurs, could be produced in three different types, each with a different number of seats and cargo storage while preserving the same fundamental chassis.
It’s intended to be a zero-emission city car, and KLM/AirFrance has tested prototypes for use as emission-free vehicles in airports.
According to Zero Pollution Motors, production will begin in mid-2019.
What Happened to Zero Pollution Motors after Shark Tank
In 2015, Shark Tank featured Zero Pollution Motors, an environmentally friendly car that operates on compressed air. For a variety of reasons, the pitch was unforgettable.
One of them was singer Pat Boone. Two, automobile enthusiast and investor Robert Herjavec agreed to contribute $5 million in exchange for a 50% stake in the company.
The arrangement fell through after the show. The rights in North America did not belong to Zero Pollution Motors. “The Zero Pollution Motors didn’t possess the rights to the product across North America,” Herjavec remarked.
They were a distributor, which isn’t always a negative thing. However, scaling that out to the scale that we intended to develop was problematic.”
“By Q4 2017-Q1 2018, Zero Pollution Motors is set to create the first compressed air-powered car for sale in the United States,” according to the company. Below is a video proposal for Zero Pollution.
