How does UVic get to an outreach event?

Take the EcoCAR of course!

UVic EcoCAR recently held an outreach event at the Saanich Centennial Library to promote Earth Day. The team decided to drive their EcoCAR to the event and test its all-electric drive mode. The drive was a standard city trip, with lots of stop and go and a maximum speed of 55 km/h. Overall the vehicle drove 16 km (10 miles), depleting only a quarter of its battery capacity.
