The car was created by Rev-TEC Energy Systems, a company focused on the design and development of energy-efficient and environmentally-conscious technologies, and this prototype is often used in film production, for which Designer Bob Alexander and his team won an Emmy Award from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for Outstanding Engineering due to its use on the popular show, “Desperate Housewives.” See VIDEO at www.albanyherald.com.
