What is the EcoCAR Mobility Challenge?

The EcoCAR Mobility Challenge is an Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, General Motors and Mathworks, and it is managed by Argonne National Laboratory. Students from 12 North American Universities must re-engineer a Chevrolet Blazer over four years to incorporate advanced propulsion systems, electrification and connected and automated vehicle technologies.

Students participating in the EcoCAR Mobility Challenge gain valuable, hands-on, real-world experience with automotive engineering and development processes used in industry.

The Ohio State University has participated in Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions for over 20 years. In June 2014, the Ohio State team won the final year of the EcoCAR 2 competition, and our Buckeyes won all four years of the EcoCAR 3 competition.
