Automotive innovation: 2006 Tour De Sol

The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association organizes an annual competition called Tour De Sol, where inventors, students, and entrepreneurs from across the world demonstrate their innovations towards zero carbon emissions, while creating a quality affordable vehicle. This year’ Tour De Sol is being held from May 10th to the 14th at the Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY, and the general public is invited to come see the vehicles on display on Saturday, May 13th. NESEA also sends out an invite to all hybrid and biofuel vehicle owners to participate in a fun Fuel Efficiency Rally, and to put their vehicles on display.

Each of the vehicles competing in the Tour De Sol are tested on a number of attributes, including practicality, acceleration, handling and range in addition to fuel efficiency and low climate change emissions. The article includes a number of testimonies from teachers and students on their motivations for entering the competition. The event also includes the Around Town Vehicle Competition where vehicles are showcased designed to meet transportation needs in communities, or vehicles for non-road use. [Source: CSR Wire]
