Thursday and Friday were bustling with media at the General Motors Desert Proving Ground (DPG) in Yuma, Arizona! On Thursday, a few of the most influential green and automotive journalists arrived from as far away as New York and hung out with the teams to get a first-hand look inside the EcoCARs. If the vehicles weren’t exciting enough, it’s also the first time national members of the media have been invited to DPG. The list of media in Yuma included:
- Danny King, Edmunds
- Dave Scrivner, Motorweek TV
- Jerry James Stone, Treehugger
- Jim Motavalli, Mother Nature Network and New York Times
- Liane Yvkoff, CNET Car Tech
On Friday, the teams were delighted to host members of the local Yuma media. Journalists were invited to meet the teams, observe the testing sessions, tour the pits and get under the hood of the different vehicles. There’s naturally a strong community connection between DPGY and Yuma and the students couldn’t be more excited to have their support!
Thanks to everyone for coming out to the DPGY!
