The Missouri S&T EcoCAR E-Cubed Commons was swarming with consumers on the afternoon of the Outreach Team’s consumer campaign to educate the public about EcoCAR: The Next Challenge and electric vehicles.
Attendees at the event were able to see a sustainable hydrogen station and state-of-the-art wind and solar energy technology, as well as S&T’s EcoCAR. The vehicle was on display all afternoon and outreach members were on hand to talk about the benefits of alternative-fueled cars. The EcoCAR was fit with a window sticker outlining its features, similar to those in new car lots. A Chevrolet Cruze from was also on display as one of General Motors’ currently available eco-friendly vehicles.
After everyone had a chance to tour the facilities, the Outreach Team welcomed Kevin Herdler, Executive Director for Clean Cities St. Louis, to the garage for a presentation on alternative fuels and Clean Cities’ programs. After Mr. Herdler finished his presentation the floor was opened to discussion and questions.
The Missouri S&T EcoCAR Outreach Team would like the thank all those in attendance, Kevin Herdler from Clean Cities St. Louis, and Fairgrounds Chevrolet for making the consumer campaign a great success.
