UW-Madison Snowmobile Team Cleans Up
March 27, 2008

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Clean Snowmobile team blew the competition out of the snow at the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) in Houghton, Michigan.

During the six-day competition, the UW-Madison team unveiled its new all-electric snowmobile, Bucky EV, which captured top honors in the zero-emissions competition.

CSC teams re-engineer existing snowmobiles to improve emissions, noise and performance while remaining cost-effective. SAE has designated two categories of competition: internal combustion and zero emissions. UW-Madison has participated in the internal-combustion CSC since 2002, claiming first place in 2004 and 2006. This was UW-Madison’s first entry in the zero-emissions event.
