Bangalore: Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata's dream is to see cars run on water and he has invested $15 million in a start-up firm supporting research in the field, an eminent scientist said today.

Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Council to the Prime Minister Prof C N R Rao said one of his close friends and a professor in the famed Massechusetts Institute of Technology in the U.S. has found a way to split water directly into hydrogen and oxygen.

"Ratan Tata has given him (the Professor) 15 million (U.S.) dollars so that he (Tata) can own that company when it comes up," Prof Rao said.
