UC Davis professor Andy Frank has been selected for the first-ever “Automotive News Electrifying 100.” The Electrifying 100 consists of 100 of the most influential people behind the vehicle electrification movement. Frank’s contributions — which we have repeatedly covered on Egghead — will be acknowledged at a gala event on June 13 at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. The gala is presented as part of Automotive News’ Green Car Conference, presented June 13-14 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.
A professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the College of Engineering, Andy Frank is widely regarded as the “father of the plug-in hybrid.” In 2006, he established a company, Efficient Drivetrains Inc. (EDI), which has licensed his inventions to develop them for the market.
