Judging Begins for Student-Designed Green Vehicles
May 21, 2010

As the end of Year Two approaches in EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge, inspections, testing and judging got underway at the General Motors (GM) Desert Proving Ground in Yuma, Arizona. The 16 EcoCAR teams from universities across North America test their vehicle’s strength in a series of pit tests that range from braking to drive quality to lane changing.

EcoCAR is a three-year competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and General Motors that challenges each team to re-engineer a GM-donated vehicle using a range of alternative technologies and integrating them together to make their own unique architecture. The Year Two competition winners will be announced on Thursday, May 27th.
