Team Trev Successfully Crossed the Finish Line of Zero Race at the United Nations Palais de Nations
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 Race—an 80 day trip around the world powered entirely by renewable energy.
