Event Highlights: The event took place in the IUT of Caen (200 km west of Paris). Attending students assisted with a presentation on mobility electrification goals and challenges. The students discussed three electric vehicle technologies: a plug-in hybrid prototype offered by Toyota, an e-car “Tweezy” from Renault, and two e-bikes.
The students participated in a ride and drive at the school car parking lot and were able to ask questions about the technologies. After the demonstration, the students went back to the classroom where they discussed the future of transportation and the need for transportation jobs. The students then heard from Florent Breque, a researcher from Mines ParisTech, about his job.
