Abstract
A low emissions vehicle was built and entered in the 1970 Cross Country Clean Air Car Race by a team of Mechanical Engineering students at the University of California at Berkeley. The vehicle finished fourth in class and exhibited exhaust emissions 50 percent below 1975 proposed Federal standards during cold start open seven mode testing. A lack of sufficient development time resulted in some problems with the vehicle; however, its overall performance demonstrated the feasibility of its emissions control system as a viable solution to the automovite pollution problem. The results of these studies are discussed.
