Having driven across the city all day in a hybrid vehicle I can just imagine how smooth it would be to cruise around in a 100% electric vehicle and amazingly enough over the last few years students at Emily Carr University have come up with some prototype models for just that.
Fuse Studio is announcing a community forum EV.ent for their proposed electric vehicle design on April 24th, 2009. The EV.ent launch is also a public forum to discuss Electric Vehicle design and the construction of a community network for alternative personal transportation options in Vancouver. Since fall 2008, the students of Fuse Studio have been designing and developing a scale model of their region-specific electric vehicle design that will be on display during the EV.ent. [Fuse Studio]
This Friday at Emily Carr there they will reveal the design in order to get community feedback and to fundraise to purchase the chassis for the vehicle.
