Last month, Design News wrote an article, Next-Generation VLC Improves on XPRIZE-Winning Design, covering the momentum and development of the Edison2 Very Light Car.
Altair ProductDesign’s Chief Operating Officer, Mike Heskitt, is quoted stating, “Altair’s core belief is that design should be inspired by physics, using simulation to drive design, and CAD as the tools to document and capture the design.”
The article also notes that the Edison2 VLC recorded 110 MPGe (EPA combines) at the competition and the electric version, the eLVC, also set records for the electric car efficiency, with the vehicle achieving 245 MPGe on the EPA five-cycle test.
