General Motors recently donated an EV1 electric car to Kettering University’s Mechanical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering departments.
The car will be used for student engineering projects at the Flint, Mich., school. According to the university Web site, possible projects include acquiring a fuel cell to install in the vehicle to give students experience with the “wave of the future” in electric cars. The car did not c ome with a battery.
The university is one of 40 colleges nationwide to receive an electric car from General Motors. GM has developed a newer model with an upgraded battery, and decided to pull the late model battery vehicles out of use.
