Check back here for updates on Year 3 of the EcoCAR 2: Plugging in to The Future Competition
The Hybrid Electric Vehicle Team of Virginia Tech (HEVT) is participating in the 2011-2014 EcoCAR 2: Plugging In to the Futureadvanced vehicle competition series sponsored by General Motors and the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal of this competition is to re-engineer a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu to be more fuel efficient while maintaining performance, consumer acceptability and safety.
During Year 3, HEVT will be continuing to implement our Year 1 plans and build upon our Year 2 success. Throughout the year we will refine, test and optimize our designs in order to meet all competition requirements and score highly at Year 3 Competition. We placed 4th overall in Year 1 and 6th overall in Year 2.
