EcoCAR Challenge: Finish Line

Posted on 17th January, by Craig Zamary in Uncategorized. No Comments

The EcoCAR Challenege is a competition that challenges participating students from across North America to re-engineer a vehicle donated by General Motors. With the goal of minimizing the vehicle’s fuel consumption and emissions, while maintaining its utility, safety and performance, teams had to find the best combination of cutting-edge technologies to meet these objectives. In the final year, the vehicles ran through a series of safety and technical tests at GM’s Proving Ground in Milford, Michigan very similar to those GM’s own production vehicles undergo.

As EcoCAR wraps up, it is only the beginning for the next chapter in the DOE’s 23-year history of advanced vehicle technology competitions. In April, Assistant Secretary for Policy and International Affairs David Sandalow announced the launch of EcoCAR 2: Plugging into the Future http://www.ecocar2.org/index.html . We look forward to seeing the new and innovative designs that students bring to this challenge and know they will find a way to exceed even our highest expectations
