The hybrid team is putting the EcoCAR to good use around the Madison area, promoting the use of personal transportation with minimal environmental impact. The team was recently featured in a local news broadcast that described the goals of the EcoCAR Challenge and the work being done to support a sustainable transportation future. The team also showed off the new vehicle at UW’s Homecoming Parade, with a big EcoCAR banner and free water bottles for the crowd
The UW EcoCAR team is now coming up with more ways to expand its outreach program by posting updates on Facebook and Twitter. There is plenty of work to do and the team is excited about getting the wrenches turning as they begin modifying the EcoCAR in search of ways to improve efficiency and reduce emissions.
