KRCB Radio interviewed Peter Oliver and Jim McGreen, designers for the Switch electric car. “Switch” is the vehicle used in the hands-on laboratory portion of Electric Auto Shop called Chassis Lab. It can be assembled, then reassembled, multiple times as different classes take the Electric Auto Shop assembly course each semester. Electric Auto Shop’s Curriculum includes all the parts, textbooks and instructional videos on how it goes together.
Reporter Bruce Robinson from North Bay Public Media delved into the Switch’s three wheels, tubular steel structure, and electric drive system. The Chassis Lab electric car course has caught on for use in education with engineering and mechanic training programs. PODCAST – Listen Now
