Alternative fuel tested for wheelchair
Methanol can produce electricity for 25-mile range
Suzuki knows that alternative fuels aren't just for cars. So the Japanese company is turning its eco-friendly eye toward a new market: wheelchairs.
Gizmag says a prototype "fuel cell wheelchair" is in the works, using methanol to generate hydrogen and then electricity. It adds that, with a range of up to 25 miles, the wheelchair would help allay fears of getting stranded.
It's good to see that alternative energy research is going toward vehicles other than.
