Not the first, will not be the last.
Major concerns like with all alternative energy vehicles.
Time to replenish energy source plus cost effectiveness from production, maintenance, and alternative energy.
Serviceability, and the ever so popular 4,500PSI goes wrong... More than just a pop winking
All of which can be overcome, however it will take more than a few concept gadgets to make it happen.
It all comes down to money, when something proves more profitable than petrofuels, they will be replaced.
If that occurs because someone discovers something cheap and manages to get it to market, or because the price of acquiring petrofuels goes up due to shortage.

Either way the outcome will be the same, under the same conditions.

Unfortunately they fell into the same trap that a lot of alternative fuel cars do and made it look like a child's toy. If they made them look more like regular cars people would be more likely to want one, and with demand comes profit. I believe the 35 mph limit is a safety issue as the frame won't pass faster car standards.

It does not really run on thin air. It runs on thick air. It takes a bit on energy to compress air and the pressure is just a way to store electric energy. The good news is that it is lighter than batteries and when it is out of air, you don't have the weight of heavy batteries when you are pushing the car home.

It is appropriate that these look like toys, because they are toy and not genuine solutions to transport needs.
