The MIT Electric Vehicle Team (EVT) is a group of active undergraduate and graduate students at MIT who are dedicated to the research, design, and operation of electric vehicles (EVs). The team has completed an EV conversion of a Porsche 914. EVT has also built multiple electric motorcycles as well and tested them in races and endurance events. More recently, EVT members have designed their own personal electric vehicles, including pocket bikes and drift trikes.
