At first we thought somebody out there was exercising their ninja photoshop skillz but then it occurred to us that
would probably not be busying themselves with the likes of the G-Wiz. No, this had to be the product of a mind so sick, so twisted, that it created the original Reva G-Wiz, on which this pick-em-up
appears to be based, to begin with. Luckily, we live in the age of the internets and after sending out a correctly formatted query down a tube, back shot the hoped-for response.
From a page created somewhere back in the mist of time (2006) came the reassuring news that this
iteration of the G-Wiz was a one-off built as a test bed for a phosphoric acid
. This cell used methanol instead of
as an energy source and negated the need for a hydrogen storage system. Of course, it also created the need for a methanol storage system but that's beside the point. Since nary a peep has been heard about this creation since
describing the project was published by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
, we feel it's safe to assume the concept has been put to rest. If you want to make sure that this is the case you'll have to pick up a copy of the latest magazine published by the
Battery Vehicle Society (BVS)
and look for an article about the truck written by Mike Boxwell.
