About Trev

Trev is three things: an idea, a car and a team.

All three came together for Zero Race, a zero-emission race around the world in 2010/2011. Team Trev journeyed across the seas from Australia to participate in Zero Race and to showcase Trev to the world.

Trev, the idea

Using  tonnes of noisy, complicated machinery to move one or two people comfortably and safely around a city is crazy. The same task can be done using much less energy in a lightweight electric vehicle. Powered by renewable energy, mobility becomes entirely emission free.  (more)

Trev, the car

With that idea in mind, some clever folks at the University of South Australia created a lightweight and beautiful car which they called Trev: the Two-seater Renewable Energy Vehicle. (more)

Trev, the team

Prior to Zero Race, Trev had travelled 3,000 km across Australia. Team Trev was created to take the idea and the car to the world,  joining fellow electric vehicles in Zero Race—an 80 day trip around the world powered entirely by renewable energy. (more)

    Agree with comment above. If I could buy one today I would.

  3. Fantastic work done so far people, so good to see Australian Students, idealists, teachers and their supporters doing something significant towards improving the efficiency of the motor vehicle in this country. I’d love to be involved in such a project having built a couple of 3 wheelers myself. I’ll be watching your progress from a far. Good Stuff, Well Done to all involved.
