University of Alberta team unveils eco-marathon car
from Edmonton Journal
Later this month, a tiny car named Steve and eight students from the University of Alberta will head to Houston for the Shell Eco-marathon challenge. Steve is a single-seat coupe with a clam shell body made of a composite material that includes cellulose, flax, hemp and Kevlar. Its hydrogen-powered motor produces 48 volts of electricity, enough to propel the vehicle to a maximum speed of about 35 km/h.
