EcoCAR 3 is a 4-year competition where sixteen North American universities are tasked with redesigning a Chevy Camaro to make it more environmentally friendly while still maintaining the vehicle’s real-world performance and safety. It builds on a proud 26-year history of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition (AVTC) series, fostering an environment where students can apply classroom knowledge to a real-world problem.
Competition sponsor General Motors (GM) plays a vital role in helping the participating university teams with this project. They not only provide teams with the vehicle itself, but also provides even more resources, setting the students up for success in Year 1 of competition and beyond.
