EcoCAR 3

Over the course of four years, EcoCAR 3 teams have to reduce the environmental impact of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro by minimizing the vehicle’s fuel consumption and reducing its emissions while retaining the vehicle’s performance, safety and consumer appeal expected from this iconic American vehicle.

Teams have to meet the competition’s technical goals which are to design and integrate vehicle powertrains that, when compared to the production Camaro, will further (1) reduce energy consumption, (2) reduce well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions, (3) reduce criteria tailpipe emissions, (4) maintain consumer acceptability in the areas of performance, utility, and safety and (5) meet energy and environmental goals, while considering cost and innovation.
