A Nigerian man has showcased his innovative skills by crafting a car modelled after the G-Wagon design, notable for its exceptional fuel efficiency.
The vehicle’s standout feature lies in its capability to smoothly manoeuvre through swampy terrains. The feat was shared through a video posted by @comediankoboko.
The creator’s resourcefulness was on full display as he remotely started the car and highlighted that a mere five litres of fuel could propel it from Calabar to Benin, emphasizing its impressive fuel economy. The video garnered enthusiasm from Nigerians who are hopeful that the inventor receives the necessary support to realize his dream of producing these cars.
Furthermore, the vehicle’s practicality is evident as it can conveniently transport up to 10 bags of cement. The inspiration behind this creation stemmed from witnessing government restrictions on okada (motorcycle) riders in his state. Notably, the man repurposed discarded steel materials obtained from trash and utilized a G-Wagon framework as the foundation for the car.
Although the vehicle currently remains in its skeletal form, the inventor envisions implementing further enhancements to elevate its comfort level.
