Photos and Story by James Hill
Automotive Service Technology students got up close and personal with technology of the present and future at an event in October. The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey, which is part of a national campaign, at the Automotive & Metals Building at Sylvania Campus celebrated the use of alternative fuel vehicles that improve the environment and help lessen dependence on fossil fuels. Even the “White Zombie,” a souped-up electric 1972 Datsun, made an appearance. Check out the video above for more on the ‘Zombie.’ Also on show were the Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius, Volkswagen diesel cars, BMW I3 and diesel versions, Teslas, electric bicycles, compressed natural gas vehicles, and more. More on the event is in the below video.
