Rev Tech has created the first electric prototype of the Dune Buggy.

The electric car made a stop in Albany Thursday afternoon.

The Manx V is an alternative for people looking to save on gas.

Creators say the vehicle can also be used in vacation spots and retirement communities.

"These are a lot more friendly to get around and they bring back the memories of their youth, you know 50 years ago when they saw these buggies going everywhere," said Bob Anderson, Engineer.
