Hybrid Electric Vehicle Team

gEhbEdbIHybrid Electric Vehicle Team

The Hybrid Electric Vehicle Team of Virginia Tech (HEVT) Has been competing in Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions (AVTCs) for nearly 20 years now, and has been very fortunate to work under faculty advisor Dr. Doug Nelson since the beginning. HEVT is committed to challenging its students to apply knowledge in unique ways in order to create cost effective and innovative solutions to sustainable transportation issues. HEVT accomplishes this by competing in EcoCAR 3, a North American collegiate competition sponsored by General Motors and the U.S. Department of Energy. The overarching goal of the competition is to reengineer a Chevrolet Camaro to be more fuel efficient while maintaining the safety, performance and consumer acceptability of the vehicle. Teams must also take into consideration the cost and innovation of the Camaro.
