The UVic Hybrid Team is a group of UVic engineering students that design, build, and compete with hybrid vehicles. Our vehicles challenge the status-quo of hybrid vehicle technology, with performance and efficiency both far above conventional vehicles. Our work is difficult, but the team constantly steps up to the challenges of technical innovation that are presented when exploring new technology.
However, the scope of our team extends beyond just building hybrid vehicles; we also believe it is important to give back to the community. Throughout the year we work in partnership with local organizations and schools to educate youth and the community about our hybrid technology, with the simultaneous goal of inspiring young minds to pursue a career in a scientific field. Informing the public, especially kids about hybrid technology is also key to making it mainstream in the eyes of consumers.
As in any organization, the team of people pushing us forward is by far our best asset. This team is based on the dedication and hard work of undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines of engineering, as well as business and economics faculties.
Members come and go over the years but one thing remains constant: the UVic Hybrid team attracts some of the top students at UVic. Many of our old team members are now working at companies like Ford, GM, and Tesla.
