Research Vehicle C2C - Coast to Coast on One Tank of Gas and ATR-1

Bob Schureman - Materials Instructor at the Art Center College of Design,
Consultant at Irvine Valley College /ATEP

Bob will give a presentation of developing a research vehicle called the C2C with the goal of a world record coast-to-coast drive on one tank of gas. The challenge was to design, build and demonstrate a street and freeway legal vehicle using existing technology that could go from California to New York on one sealed 25-gallon tank of gasoline available at standard gas pumps. The C2C holds two passengers and is enclosed. It weighs less than 1,500 pounds and has three wheels and is classified as a motorcycle. It will be able to cruise at freeway speeds and as a motorcycle can use carpool lanes.

Bob is also developing the ATR1 Research Vehicle. The tooling for the ATR-1 vehicle is being fabricated at Cerritos Composite Lab. Using students from the Irvine Valley College/ATEP , Art Center College of Design, Art Institute of Design, and Cerritos College. Two cars will be built to utilize new materials and processes. The first will be a Gas vehicle and the second will be an Electric vehicle Using new battery and cooling technology.
