Showcasing the new Yellowjacket eCARS

UW-Superior facilities management staff showcased the four new electric cars outside the front door of the Yellowjacket Union on Tuesday, July 16. Faculty, staff and students were invited to come and take a look at a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle and take a test drive.

The cars were made in Minnesota and can be used in winter conditions. They can recharge at any standard electric outlet and will allow the campus to save money on fuel. The vehicles travel at low-speed and are road-compliant and are already in use around campus.

A 5th eCAR ride, will be used by Residence Life staff in the coming days.

One was also featured in the 4th of July parade in Superior. Funding for the cars came from energy savings on campus that needed to be reinvested into more energy savings and or sustainable programs.
