DOE Announces EcoCAR 2

 
Eco-Car-2

The DOE has announced EcoCAR 2: Plugging into the Future, a three-year collegiate engineering competition that is designed to reduce the environmental impact of an existing vehicle without compromising safety, performance, and consumer acceptability.

The program features 16 university teams selected to participate and reinforces engineering practices, hands-on experience, exposure to world-class organizations, and a team-oriented environment.  The universities selected for inclusion in EcoCar 2 are as follows:

  • California State University, Los Angeles (Los Angeles, California)
  • Colorado State University (Fort Collins, Colorado)
  • Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Daytona Beach, Florida)
  • Mississippi State University (Starkville, Mississippi)
  • North Carolina State University (Raleigh, North Carolina)
  • The Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio)
  • Pennsylvania State University (University Park, Pennsylvania)
  • Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana)
  • Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (Terre Haute, Indiana)
  • University of Ontario Institute of Technology (Oshawa, Ontario, Canada)
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville (Knoxville, Tennessee)
  • University of Victoria (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada)
  • University of Washington (Seattle, Washington)
  • University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)
  • Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, Virginia)
  • Wayne State University (Detroit, Michigan)

The teams will follow a real-world engineering regimen modeled after GM's Global Vehicle Development Process (GVDP).   Each EcoCAR 2 team will utilize a Chevrolet Malibu, donated by General Motors, as the integration platform for their advanced vehicle design.
