Electric Car Racing at Penn

A group of about 40 graduate and undergraduate students from the
School of Arts and Sciences, Penn Engineering and Wharton, is
preparing to show the world what they have been working on for the
last five years: an all-electric race car.

The carbon-fiber-clad Renegade is a product of Penn Electric Racing, a
student-run, interdisciplinary club of engineers and designers who aim
to push the envelope of what electric vehicles can do.

"We want to help the general public, and the University community,
understand EV (electric vehicle) technology, and the benefits both
environmentally and economically of driving EVs," says team captain
and Penn Engineering student William Price.
