AYRO Delivers Keynote Address at University of Texas Longhorn Racing Vehicle Reveal
AYRO, Inc. (NASDAQ: AYRO) (“AYRO” or the “Company”), a designer and manufacturer of electric, purpose-built delivery vehicles and solutions for micro distribution, micromobility and last-mile delivery,
participated in and delivered the keynote address at the sponsored University of Texas at Austin Longhorn Racing Unveiling on Saturday, April 22.
Longhorn Racing is a student chapter of The Society of Automotive Engineers located at the University of Texas that provides members the opportunity to explore different engineering fields and develop industry-level, tangible skills. The organization is comprised of three Collegiate Design Series Teams that focus on developing, building and racing vehicles using combustion, electric, or solar power. At the unveiling event, the combustion and electric teams displayed the race cars that they will use to compete this year, and the solar team presented the designs and mechanics for the solar race car that they will use to compete in 2024.
“As we continue along on our journey of sustainability, we look to our future engineers to carry that momentum forward,” noted Tom Wittenschlaeger, CEO at AYRO. “Over the past year, we have substantially increased our partnership with The University of Texas at Austin and brought on interns from the Cockrell School of Engineering. Today we are honored to support our future engineers by sponsoring this year’s Longhorn Racing Vehicle Unveiling Event.”
“We are honored to have AYRO as a sponsor of this year’s unveiling,” said Dr. Scott Evans, assistant professor of practice and director of Texas Inventionworks in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. “The city of Austin has become the birthplace of so many wonderful electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers. AYRO’s support for our students in both sponsorship and through practical application provides great experience for our students.”
