Sydney, Feb 26, 2011 (ABN Newswire) - During Zero Race, Team Trev drove 28,000km across 16 countries in 80 days of driving. The team drove from Geneva to Shanghai, from Vancouver to Cancun, and from Casablanca back to Geneva. Trev drove across deserts and across mountains, through remote rural areas and through some of the world's largest cities, on all types of roads, in all types of weather. The energy cost of the journey was less than AU$400 worth of electricity generated from a wind farm in South Australia.

The net emissions were zero.

Trev will now be shipped back to Australia, and will hopefully arrive in early April. We are planning a team function in coming months, to celebrate our achievements and to thank our sponsors.

Trev was sponsored by:
Google, ABN Newswire, Galaxy Resources, Eco Green and Catcon.

Trev is owned by the University Of South Australia.

About Team Trev

Trev is three things: an idea, a car and a team.

All three will come together for Zero Race, a zero-emission race around the world in 2010. Team Trev will journey across the seas from Australia to join Zero Race and to showcase Trev to the world.

Trev, the idea

Using tonnes of noisy, complicated machinery to move one or two people comfortably and safely around a city is crazy. The same task can be done using much less energy in a lightweight electric vehicle. Powered by renewable energy, mobility becomes entirely emission free.

Trev, the car

With that idea in mind, some clever folks at the University of South Australia created a lightweight and beautiful car which they called Trev: the Two-seater Renewable Energy Vehicle.

Trev, the team

Trev has travelled 3000 km across Australia. Team Trev will take the idea and the car to the world, joining fellow electric vehicles in Zero Raceā€”an 80 day trip around the world powered entirely by renewable energy.
