The mission of AeroHance is to be a worldwide leader in the development and distribution of products that juxtapose economy, efficiency in energy consumption with environmental awareness, and garner global sales in a way that catalyzes participation in CO2 reduction programs and empowers individuals by offering them innovative, energy efficient products that appeal to all.
Its premiere product, GasPods, are airfoils that when placed at select points on vehicles increase their aerodynamic efficiency. This saves fuel, saves money, and saves time by extending the miles traveled between gas fills. If enough of us join in reducing our fuel consumption, in whatever small way we can, we will make a significant contribution toward reducing the effect that our driving has on the world.
