The EVX Team has embarked on a new electric adventure!
Taliya Carter, Team Captain identified an awesome new kit to build. It’s Bauer LTD’s very cool Catfish. It’s an American made kit that utilizes components from older Mazda Miatas. We’re coming to trick it out with an extremely powerful electric motor and a cutting-edge battery pack. We’ll keep you posted!
The EVX Team’s beautiful Factory Five 818 logged an astonishing 110 MPG at Watkins Glen in last year’s Green Grand Prix. It was a wonderful experience for the 18 team members who made the trip to upstate New York for the race.
We won’t make it to the Green Grand Prix this year, but we’re going to two other super events where our students will be showing off their work.
Our Annual Dessert Reception is April 8 and we hope you will join us. It's been quite a year. We've been to the White House and the Auto Show. Next up is the Green Grand Prix in April.
Students from the Workshop School will be at the first ever White House Maker Faire on Wednesday June 18, 2014 at 10:45 AM.
The Workshop School is a project based School District of Philadelphia public high school. The mission of the Workshop School is to unleash the creative and intellectual potential of young people to solve the world's toughest problems.
We did it!
We finished the 818 before the end of the school year. In fact, we have 2 days to spare. In case you didn't know, we work best under pressure. Here's the story.
Our Annual Dessert Reception is April 29. We hope you will join us! After all, it's not easy building a car from the ground up, but that's what we're doing. And we need your help.
The EVX Team's main project for 2014 is the construction of the new Factory Five 818 as our latest competition car.
Philadelphia area journalist Jason Fagone became interested in the Progressive Automotive X PRIZE before most of the world had heard about. Shortly thereafter he visited the West Philly Hybrid X Team at our shop.
The EVX Team is hard at work building a new high mileage competition car. Factory Five Racing has generously donated the ultra-sleek chassis and body to us. We found a wrecked Subaru Imprezsza WRX as a donor car that the 818 is designed to use. We've already removed and installed the Subaru suspension and other key components.
