AJAC EcoRun

The AJAC EcoRun

The EcoRun is an annual AJAC event that shows off a variety of eco-friendly vehicles, which include pure electrics, plug-in and conventional hybrids, hydrogen fuel cells, diesel-fuelled powertrains and highly-efficient gasoline options.

The purpose of the EcoRun is to help inform consumers of these alternative options, as well as providing accurate road testing fuel economy numbers. There's no limit to the size of vehicle showcased, as they range from subcompacts to pickup trucks.

These new vehicles are driven on real-world road conditions in order to fully test for fuel efficiency and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

    Evan Williams

    The Panamera was a joy on these roads in hybrid mode.

Warning signs for slow curves? Forget about them in the Panamera, as long as you can see around the other side. The car just turned, stuck, and went in near silence.
