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.

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.

“The EV.ent launch gives members of our community the opportunity to work creatively and co-design with students on an ecologically friendly project,” said Project Coordinator Stephanie Vacher.
