First Electric Car Secured for Motor Vehicle Students

Published 17 May

Craven College now has its very own electric car for students to work on, thanks to RRG Toyota garage in Silsden.

The car has been purchased to allow motor vehicle students to understand how electric and hybrid vehicles work. As electric and hybrid vehicles are developing within the industry, it is essential our students understand how to work on them.

Two Mechanics tutors undertook their official training back in March, which then allowed the purchase of this vehicle. RRG Toyota advised on which model would be the best for students to work on and also took care of the graphical wrapping of the car.

Joanna Baxter, Centre Manager for Animal, Equine Studies and Engineering, said: “This is a great purchase for College and will allow students to enhance their knowledge in a rapidly growing field. I’d like to say a big thank you to RRG Silsden and James Doyle for their help and advice, and also the effective car wrapping.”
