About Us Formerly the Mizzou Solar Car Team Switched fuel source to hydrogen gas in 2006 Built three hydrogen-powered vehicles: TigerGen I, TigerGen II & TigerGen III Compete annually in the Shell Eco-Marathon in Houston, Texas
Shell Eco-Marathon Houston, Texas Over 1,000 students in attendance with over 100 vehicles competing in the 2013 race Goal: To use the least amount of energy to complete 10 laps of the 0.6 mile course
TigerGen III Powered by hydrogen gas An entirely electro-chemical process Electricity generated used to power an electric motor to propel the drive wheel Only emissions are heat & water vapor – No CO2!
TigerGen III Chassis made out of carbon fiber and Nomex Rims made out of carbon fiber Body made out of carbon fiber GOAL: Lightweight
TigerGen III Efficiency: 299 mpg
2013 begins a new era for our team as we redefine ourselves as Mizzou Eco-Racing Team will be working on two vehicles at the same time – TigerGen IIII and the BattCat
BattCat Powered entirely by electrical energy stored in batteries Carbon fiber spaceframe chassis Zero pollutants emitted Efficiency: To be determined
