Green Team Car Show

Green Team Annual Car Show on the Quad
October 01, 2014

General Motors produced 1,117 EV1 automobiles

between 1996 and 1999. WPI owns the one shown

here, which will be on display on the Quad.

Here at WPI, we’re all about sustainability. One demonstration of that enthusiasm is an increasingly popular fall event, the Green Team Annual Car Show. This year’s show will take place on Thursday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Quad. It is free and open to the WPI community.

The vehicles on display range from the oldest mass-produced electric car, the General Motors EV1, to the new and highly touted Tesla Model S sedan. The red EV1 owned by WPI, and seen at previous shows, is maintained by WPI’s Society of Automotive Engineers.

The Student Green Team focuses on on-campus environmental issues. The purpose of the event is increase awareness of sustainable forms of transportation and promote its use.

Other vehicles and organizations at the event:

  • Nissan Leaf
  • Chevy Volt
  • WRTA (electric bus)
  • Zipcar (Ford Focus and Prius)
  • Wooberry (truck)
  • MassRides (info table)

This event was organized by Green Team members Meghan Dawe ’16, Anna Valdez ’17, Maggie Russell ’17, and Jacqueline Tedesco ’17.
